giving blood the easy way

I will admit that I have a very hard time giving blood. I get icky feeling for most of the day. I know they say to drink lots of water, but I always think I do. I haven't given as much lately due to this and the stress involved with my own child being ill. Now, however, I was feeling so good the other day and B had to get blood in the hospital, so I said, why not get on it again?!! I determined to drink starting the day before. I also added powdered greens to my water to build volume and make my blood nice and healthy. It was a peace of cake. They made me drink juice during the donation. I drank all night. I felt GREAT!! I encourage you to go out and do it. If you never have, now is the time. It could be your son or daughter next having a need for this. Accidents happen. Blood saves my son's life while in treatment. Thank you to those of you who take the time. Blessings upon you in Jesus' name.
PS: THEY NEED MEN TO DONATE JUST PLATELETS, SO THE RECIPIENT CAN GET ALL THE SAME CELLS. THEY ARE FINDING AN INFECTION IN WOMAN, SO THEY PREFER MEN. GO GET YOU STRONG ABLE BODIED MEN!!

Wow,
I just got back from donating platlets. Blood donation is faster-about 20 to 30 minutes, but platlets take me a good hour. They still wanted mine.....We are praying.

Why MAGNANIMOUS?

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:
MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.
