A Rock Feels No Pain

Cool Thing-

I came across a really neat site over at dangerous lilly’s tonight. I’d never heard of this place, it’s called “Gives Me Hope”.

Little snips of things that people have done, or observed, or thought of, that give hope to another, in some way or fashion.

This one, particularly, floored me:

A little girl was dying of cancer and her younger brother had a match for the bone marrow she needed.

The doctors told him it was a matter of life and death.

After he had the surgery, he asked the doctors how long he had to live.

He thought if he gave his bone marrow to let his sister live he would die – but he did it anyway.

Goosebumps, and, mebbe a tear or two- okay, so I’m not such a good rock anymore, lol.

Just wanted to share…

    Our priest tells this story from time to time.

    Greater love has no one than this. . .

    I’ve never heard that story – very sweet and sad at the same time.

    Craig: It is pretty neat
    Cocotte: I hadn’t either, rather special though

    Autumn: I’m starting to think it may be one of those internet-urban-legends; but it’s no less moving for that, I think.
