Little Things Mean A Lot ~


Sometimes when I start to feel down and the self doubt rears its ugly head, I start to think about what's good in my life and what I'm thankful for, and you know what? Not only do I feel better, I feel motivated and blessed and happy!
The following list isn't grand and I basically wrote whatever popped in my head, but it's from the heart and it made me smile when I was done.


So in absolutely no particular order, I am thankful for......

1. Insulin
2. Cheese as a free food and finally being able to get the whole Cheese Slut confession off my chest!
3. Good surf
4. Blood Sugar Nirvana in all its forms, including cupcakes
5. Summer fruit and Jersey Tomatoes
6. Fresh Mint in my water
7. The DOC
8. Dodging Doorknobs
11. Laughing so much that my whole body shakes so much that my laughs cease to have sound
12. Harrison Ford movies - And a big thanks to George Lucas for "discovering" him!
13. A-ha moments - both big and little
14. Big hugs from little kidlets
15. Singing out loud and at the top of my lungs in my car when a favorite song plays
16. Fireworks - Both in the sky and in my heart
17. Morning coffee and afternoon iced tea
18. Seeing the good in others & seeing the good in myself
19. DMeet-Ups
20. The love of my family and friends, including YOU!

So little or big, diabetes related or not, tell me something that you're thankful for!

PS: I wrote this post today and afterwards my insulin pump had very close call - And DIDN'T die. And a few hours after that, I won free cupcakes from @CrumbsBakeShop via "the twitter." So yes, you can bet your sweet aaaaaaa...ammmmazing cupcakes that little things do indeed mean a lot!

I love this list!

I'm thankful for summer, a good book, cupcakes (or really just cake in general), the way Sweets smell after a day at the pool (all lotiony and chloriney), my computer, great friends, an awesome husband, my beautiful little girl, McDonald's coke, and YOU! :)

PS- the comment moderation word is mating! I'm thankful that too!

Thankful for friends who want to watch Bean test and bolus (and even ask if they can help!) instead of saying 'ewww'. (Bean let her cock the lancet and even push the button for it to prick her finger!)
Thankful for same in my computer!
Thankful for awesome PWDs like you (and countless others) that give me a glimpse into a bright future for Bean!

Great list, K2! All I know, is that cheese and cupcakes are on it... and just those 2 totally rock. Everything else, is like glitter on the unicorn. Thanks for reminding how little things add up to be monumentally big things that change moods and attitudes and lives.

Wonderful list! : ) I'm thankful for thank you notes from friend's kids, a cushy, comfy bed, the friends in my computer and in my real world, ribbon, rainbows, pink peonies, that I haven't lost hope, for a limitless library, my sweet husband, and just today. Time to enjoy my now. : ) Hugs to you and your positive thinking! (OH! And warm chocolate chip cookies!) : )
