One Great Thing

Okay, obviously everyone else doing this challenge was smart enough to work ahead. At 7 a.m. this morning there were posts already. I don't seem to be on the right schedule (one might say "as usual"....)

So here we go. Today we write about the one diabetes thing that we do SPECTACULARLY. That is daunting. I don't know that I have ever done anything SPECTACULARLY. Except maybe fall. I am really good at falling. Embarrassingly enough, sometimes I can burp SPECTACULARLY but I could never admit that about myself. That would not be very ladylike, would it? Okay, so forget that.

Silent Sam and I had a conversation about this topic. We were both scratching our heads about what I could say that we even do right, forget SPECTACULARLY. Of course we were being a little hard on ourselves.

SS and I did come up with what we think we do right. Are you ready? Here comes....

SILENT SAM ADMITS THAT HE HAS DIABETES AND WORKS ON LIVING WITH THE DISEASE INSTEAD OF FIGHTING IT

It sounds simple but I don't think that it is, especially for Type 2 diabetics. He is concerned and follows the "rules" as best he can. Acknowledging a disease that one can't see or feel is hard. Diabetes is a long term problem and long term is daunting.

So hats off to you Silent Sam. I am so happy that you have done this so well. I think I will have to make you a crown to wear tonight. (I do crack myself up sometimes.. I can just see him giving me the "look" for handing him a crown to wear.)

Thanks for reading!
