D-Blog Week: Find a Friend

Think about the d-blogs you read that you think we may not know about and introduce us to one that you love!!  Let’s all find a new friend today! 

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.

    Kelly K

  2. And you, yup you, were one of the first to take the time to encourage me when I started blogging. And you continue to put up with me even though I’m – ummm, older.
    Thanks for being a Good Friend that I know is always there. (sound familiar? :))

  3. I never thought about the comparisons between you and Kelly – but you forgot to include that both of you are great friends to people across the DOC.
