I am....

I am a diabetic. Type 1. For the past 23 years. I barely remember life before diabetes. Sometimes it seems like diabetes is the center of my world. Other times, it is just a part of my life; insignificant and small, but always there.

Recently, diabetes has taken that "smaller" role in my life. The lack of blog posts would reflect this. As I thought about this last night I began to thing of all the things I am, other than a diabetic.

I am a daughter, sister, niece, granddaughter.

I am a friend, god-mother, co-worker.
I am a Christian.

I am a teacher.

I am a reader, a writer.

I am a knitter, a scrapbooker.

I am a computer junkie.
I am a musical lover.

I am a music lover.

I am a lousy housekeeper.

I am a photographer.

I am a cake decorator.

I am dramatic.

I am crazy.
I am shy and out-going.

I am stubborn.

I am a lover of theater.

I am a dreamer.

I am so many things, other than a diabetic. Yet diabetes is part of everything that I am.

You are so many different, interesting things & a very special person.

Karen, I am just a beginning knitter. So far I can knit and purl. :) I am learning though. I haven't really tried any patterns out yet because I want to be sure I have the beginnings down. :)
What's Ravelry?
Donna, I thought you and your husband might enjoy that cake. (With the motorcycles and all) That's why I picked that one to put up (also, it's one of my favorites that I have done).
