I thought it would be a nice idea to do something in memory of my donor, who has give me the greatest gift of all, the Gift of Life and for which I will be eternally grateful. Thank you seems such an inadequate word....

I sent my friends and family little cards with some forget-me-not seeds to plant in memory of my donor... it also contained a poem which reads...

Thank you for the gift of life, for letting me be me,

For all that I can know by words, and all that I can see,

For all the music I can hear and all the songs I sing,

For all the joy that comes to me and all the joy I bring,

For all the food that I can taste and all the sweet scents I smell,

For all the loved ones I can touch, who love and wish me well,

For all the beauty of the world, ever fresh and new,

I don't know whom else I can thank, and so I'm thanking you


I found it on the internet, but I think it says it all...

Here are some pictures of the cards.

My Donor and their family are never far from my thoughts and will always hold a special place in my heart x


  1. What an awesome idea, not only so that your donor will be remembered, but a way to raise OD awareness.
    Well done hun. xxx

  2. Glad you've found a use for the seeds - we've loads if anyone else wants to copy the idea. I think the cards and poem are lovely. Just right.xx

  3. Yes Thanks Pauline, how ironic... You gave me those seeds the week I had my transplant!

    Ended up sending out so many cards I had to buy some more seeds lol!

  4. Hi sweetie, did you get my text ok thanking you for the gorgeous card? I hope so...if not, I've got the wrong mobile number for you! I thought that was just the loveliest idea possible and I was so touched to receive one. Thank you! xxx
