a bloody thought

and sof sof

YES! Finally I can donate blood!! I felt better on my way out than on my way in.
My only anxiety now, lies in the fact that I am not certain that the blood I 'donated'* was not tainted blood.

Energetic blood, yes. Yet, created from excitement for something that may have displeased G-d.
Healthy blood, yes. Yet, merged with food items of a questionable Kashrut validity.
Pure blood, yes. Yet, created at a time of impure and improper thoughts.

I now have three months to work on my blood.

* I donated? MY blood? Everything is on loan from G-d!

well blood is blood
and remarkably despite intention, it is still able to help somebody...
it's also pretty healthy to let the body rejuvenate a bit...

mom-what do you want from me..? ;)
wandering-yes i am lucky. bh. and no, its not a NEW step in my life. just this year...
namastaei-of course, gd willing, the blood will help. up to 3 or 4 people as a matter of fact. but it was still something i was thinkin about-how when you give something to someone, make sure you're doing it all the way. Be Pure.
