I am still running a bit behind on my Diabetes Awareness Month Photos but here we go…
Truly the greatest gift that diabetes has brought us is the many amazing, enduring, and incredible relationships that it has brought into our lives. I have been blessed to meet, talk to, and interact with people from all over the world who have become family to me in every sense of the word.
Blue to me is still new. I know, the blue circle has been around for ages, why don’t I get with the program?? I have no clue. When my son was first diagnosed, advocates displayed a grey ribbon with a drop of blood. I have that logotattooedon my body and its the image that I have in my mind when it comes to awareness. I like the concept of ablue circle. I likethe unity that it represents. I appreciate the hope that it brings. One day I hope that it will instantly evoke the same images and feelings that the pink and yellow ribbons currently do.
