Giving Thanks…to the ‘betes.

It’s Thanksgiving tomorrow, and with my family in town and a whole lotta eating that needs to be done, I’m going to take the next few days off. But before I peace out, I think it’s only fitting to give thanks…to diabetes.

Ok, so I’m not exactly jumping with gratitude in regards to having diabetes, but I do know that it’s part of what makes me who I am today. I have a career, a hobby, and a volunteer role that all center around my passion for diabetes. Diabetes has given me direction and focus, and even though it’s never easy to have this disease, I truly appreciate the little things that make this pain-in-the-ass condition livable. In tribute, here’s a short list of the ‘betes bits I’m grateful for – feel free to add your own!

Most of all, I am thankful that I have a manageable disease which never holds me back from doing anything I want to. I am healthy and alive, and for that I am thankful every single day.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! See ya Monday with more dia-bloggage 🙂

And a Happy T-Day to us all! Double helping on the turkey, count the carby side dishes, and we all begin another healthy holiday season!

Have a great day, relax and have fun!!

I am thankful for my awesome A1C I got back on Friday! (A mishap at the drs..but I got my results..) from a 7.3 to a……. 6.2! MORE THAN A POINT LOWER!!!!!!!!!!!!! I thought it was going to be worse, of course I was called a drama queen.. 😉 I rewarded myself with a new Vera Bradley bag…that is also big enough to carry my essentials! 😀
