you never know when you might save someone's life

Tori and I are friends on Facebook.  I met her when I attended the Chick-fil-A Leadercast Event 2013 back in May.  This is the 2nd time I have attended the event at her Church [Morning Chapel CME Church] and 3rd year to attend the conference.  Over lunch that day, she shared her story with all of us.

Well today, Brenda and her girls came over to swim.  It was a hot day and we called things off a little earlier than anticipated.  I came in about 4pm and got changed for us to go out for an early dinner before she headed home and of course, I had to check my Facebook News Feed.  I LOVE FACEBOOK!  

Tori had posted a request: 

Someone HELP please I need a Epipen ASAP.............

It all had to do with timing because if I had not checked Facebook when I did, I would not have seen the post.  I would not have been able to let her know that I had an EpiPen and that I would give it to her.

Here is her post this evening:

Tori wrote: "This is what Angioedema looks like and its timing. I've had this since I was 14, and its just apart of who I am. No ER this time due to a wonderful women who visited my church sometime ago, by giving me her personal EpiPen. Thank you Misty Gilbert for saving my life, my day, and my finances. Good night y'all blessed"

I am grateful for the opportunity to have met her and to help save her life today.  She is self employed, has no health insurance, and had no funds to go to the ER. 

Can I remind you to make the most of your day and every opportunity?  Life is short.  Make a difference in someone's day!!!
