But yesterday happened something really special and I want to share it with you because it brought happiness in my heart and I started smiling again after many weeks.
On Sunday evening, I heard to the news that a family was asking for donors of bone marrow for their 5 years old girl. All you had to do was to give some blood and have your compatibility checked.
In Greece we don't have databases that provide such info , so if someone is in need, Media make an announcemnt.
Many people responded. Around 2000 from all over Greece. I responded as well and last night they called me to say that I was the most compatible of the volunteers!!!
My husband and I do not have children althought we have tried several times. Children are very important to me. In fact I think that children are a good reason to fight in this life.
The idea that I might help a little girl survive her illness and in such a way filled my heart with Joy. During the previous weeks, I was depressed as I was realising how weak we are, as individuals, to stop conflicts and to stop humans from hurting each other.
But as I keep saying, there must be a kind spirit in this world because when I feel lost it sends me messages to keep hoping. This is not the first time that I am in the middle of nowhere and suddenly I see a ray of light.
This is the week of Easter in Greece ( Orthodox Easter is always the Sunday after the Full Moon of the Jewish Passover) our most important religious festivity. Greek Easter is about hope . We celebrate the fact that Death was beaten by the Spirits of Kindness and Mercy that are called God.
Life is always stronger.
Happy Easter from Greece. :)
