Of Great Size

A mighty tree


It seems that writers are generally worried about not having anything to write about or suffering from “writer’s block”. I understand this as there are times I am not sure what I am going to write about here. In order to combat this problem, writers like to give out “prompts”.  A prompt is generally one word that should inspire you to create. 

Wordsmith Studio (www.wordsmithstudio.org), the group I belong to, gives out a prompt each week. With this prompt, you can respond in a way that is appropriate for you.  I have usually taken photographs (www.carolearlycooney.wordpress.com ) but this week, instead of posting the recipe that I was going to post (You thought I forgot about trying and sharing new recipes didn’t you?) I am inspired to use the word when writing to you. 

Since entering this diabetes community, I have been amazed by all of you. First of all, the sheer number of people with diabetes and the amount of information that is available but more than that, how nice a group of people I have been able to meet. 

Yes, the diabetes community is mighty.

Yes, that is the word prompt and can you see why I thought if it in relation to the diabetes community? 

We are a mighty force that can make a difference for generations in the future. We can be a mighty push for research. As with any mighty force, it just takes a small step from each part.

What will be your small step?

Each petal adds to the beauty
Each person doing just a little helps
