#sparearose: A Valentine To The Diabetes On-line Community

fyi: The cute little redhead in the pic is my niece Tess, circa mid 1990's!

Dearest DOC- 
You make me smile, you make laugh - you understand my occasional need of blood sugar pie charts and  graphs. 

You tell me I will, whenever I have doubts - 
You answer my diabetes questions - even the ones about brussell sprouts.

You see the best in me - even when I can't.
 And you listen understandingly whenever I go off on one of my diabetes police/media stupidity rants.

Each of you has been there for me on my darkest of days...
You've waited patiently online and on the twitter with me during a high or low blood sugar haze. 

And hopefully I've been there for you in some small way - 
Even if it's just making you smile on a particularly craptastic day. 

Together as a group we move mountains - Alone we just trudge up hills.
Together we help others living with diabetes, both online and off....
Sidebar: The only thing I can think of that rhymes with "off" for the next line is the name of that guy from "Bay Watch,"

The ever so creepy 
Mr. David Hasselhoff

So I'm done with prose - I've pretty much run out of rhyme. 
I love you all - and thanks for your time. 

But before I go - Please don't forget to #sparearose - As in Spare a rose, save a child.
A few bucks goes along way for a Life Of A Child living with diabetes in a far away place,
where insulin isn't readily available and many hearts break. 

Help The IDF - because just a little goes along way....
And save a child with diabetes life - on this Saint Valentine's Day~
