"We Had a Good Thing" Diabetes Poem

An online DOC friend of mine posted a poem that she wrote and performed. It really hit home for me and I asked if I could share this on my blog. Thankfully she said yes. I don't want to take away from what she wrote, so here it is!

If you make a carrot out of carrot cake M&Ms, does it count as a vegetable?

Spring Has Sprung

This weekend was amazing. Temperatures got to the upper 70s, maybe even low 80s. Of course now, Monday morning, it's in the 4os and raining. I was so thankful for the time outside, even though it cut into my homework time. Sometimes we need to put aside things we planned to do and focus on what's important.

My children are what I needed to focus on this weekend. Playing in the yard. Working in the garden. Watching the youngest do tricks on the swing set. Homework can wait. I can do that after they go to bed. These precious moments can't wait. In a blink of the eye, my children will be grown and move on.

Find what is really important. What is precious. Make sure that you focus on that before it's gone.
