Have you ever met those people that all that they say is something negative. They never have anything good to say. Their situation is the absolute worst. I've come into contact with a few of those kinds of people. I try to steer clear but sometimes it doesn't always happen. Many people don't look at LIFE as a gift. It is truely a GIFT from GOD!!! Some people aren't thankful for what they do have ie: sight, hearing, legs, and even the gift of breathing. Even though my lung function isn't that good now I'm still here and without the transplant I wouldn't be. For about 6 months, after the transplant in 2004, I had really good lung function (90-100%) and I am so thankful that GOD let me, even though it was for a short time, to have the experience of breathing so freely. It was awesome and one day I will have it again!!! So be THANKFUL for everything. Even the (what some people say are small things) they really are something to be thankful for!!!
