Hey guys! I was about to forget to post! Iâ€™ve had so much going on that I do believe if one more thing has do be fixed, my mind will explode. BUT, thatâ€™s beside the point.
SO! I have been thinking of what to write and how to word it to not sound corny, but I wanted to say a few things about some people who have helped me tremendously these past few days.
First shout-out goes to Cherise. This woman is awesome. I know that at any given time, I can call her, vent and sheâ€™ll put a smile back on my face in no time. Sheâ€™s â€œda-bombâ€! (Oh lordy, that goes back to the 90â€™s!) Sheâ€™s so much more than a diabetic friend. Sheâ€™s a true, honest-to-goodness friend that happens to share the same disease. So much that she is going to try and share some of who she is with you guys because sheâ€™s just bubbling over with personality. If you checkout sweetcherise.wordpress.com, youâ€™ll see that sheâ€™s set up a whole other blog just to blog about all things Cherise. So, way to go girl! You ROCK!
Second goes to someone who isnâ€™t diabetic. Heâ€™s not even a follower of my blog. Heâ€™s part of my family. He had moved away for a while, but now heâ€™s back in my area and weâ€™ve gotten back in touch. Now, itâ€™s hard to imagine him not there. Itâ€™s such a wonderful thing to have someone who â€œgetsâ€ you. He may not â€œgetâ€ what Iâ€™m talking about when I say diabetes-related things, but he also doesnâ€™t make a big deal of it either. He just sits there and listens. Iâ€™m not going to say too much for fear of getting sappy, but I will say thisâ€¦ if he ever moves again, Iâ€™ll be one upset little camper. Thank goodness for Facebook, cellphones, and GPS, because theyâ€™ll get quite a use from me if he does.
These people this week have been my source of strength and have kept me going. Theyâ€™re my sunshines.
Of course, I couldnâ€™t leave without mentioning the other person Iâ€™ve been talking with on a daily basis too, and thatâ€™s Chris Stocker. Heâ€™s an awesome dude who has been putting up with emails from me since the first of November about helping me re-make my blog site onto WordPress.org. Heâ€™s super patient, and has so far passed every demand and inquisition I have sent his way with flying colors. I canâ€™t wait to show you guys the finished product, which rumor has it that we may be a go by next week!
