D-Blog Week: Find a Friend
Taking this topic in a bit of a different direction. You’ll see why.
Many of you know Kelly. Many of you laugh with her, many of you advocate with her; many of you cry with her.
The past two and a half years, it seems Kelly and I have led somewhat parallel lives. Thrown major health concerns unrelated to diabetes in December 2009. Worlds turned upside down in 2011, in decidedly different but still heartbreaking ways. (On a positive note, we are both such proud aunties.)
The thing is, Kelly still makes me laugh and still makes me want to advocate, even while she’s shed her own tears. She exhibits a kind of strength that I wish I could and to which I aspire, in the worst of times.
Happy birthday, Kelly. May there be many better days ahead. xoxo.
