Here’s to World Diabetes Day and every single person effected with this disease.
Here’s to everyone spreading the truth about Diabetes, not the fallacies!
Here’s to Jane and Joe Six-pack realizing the differences between t1& t2, educating themselves on our disease- and never, ever asking a person with diabetes, if “we are indeed allowed to eat that?”
Here’s to all of us owning our disease instead of Diabetes owning us.
Here’s to the Children with Diabetes who are wise beyond their years and to their parents who are always there them, 24X7.
Here’s to the siblings of all the Children and adults Diabetics. Thank you for looking out for us, even when we torture you for it.
Here’s to all of friends – Thanks for always accepting who we are, faulty pancreas and all.
Here’s to the research for a cure in our life time -lord knows we need one!
Here’s to celebrating who we are as both diabetics and people. Each of us are individual pieces of art. Imperfect, yet perfect in our own way, and who bring something unique and wonderful to the table of Life.
As promised, here are the results of my world Diabetes Day Contest. I gotta be honest, this was really hard for me, because I truly wanted everyone who entered to win.
Thank GOD my mom did the choosing, because I was REALLY TORN and if I had my way, everyone would have received a WELLalarm.
So, here's what went down - sans the crazy work schedule and prepping for my mom's Doctor's appt this afternoon - we are finding about her surgery to day - please keep your fingers and toes crossed!
First – I went and took a picture of my self all in blue – to show that I was wearing the color of the day.
I then wrote everyone’s name down on individual pieces of paper, cut & folded said pieces of paper to place in my trusty DESA sports cap.
Then, I filled my DESA Hat with the “HOPES: of all
who entered the contest.
Next, I had my mom reach inside the hat and pick the winner.
AND THE WINNER IS...............
The winner is Karen from Bitter-Sweet Diabetes, whose hope was to always HAVE HOPE.
CONGRATS KAREN! And to everyone else who wrote such heartfelt, funny, inspiring, and straight from the heart hopes for World Diabetes Day. I truly thank each of you for your participation, your inspiring words, and your friendship! - YOU ALL ROCK IN MY BOOK!
