Happy Thanksgiving

It's officially Turkey Day! I am posting late due to a day full of food and family. It's nice to have time to just be a family together.

In the true spirit of the holiday, I am going to share with all of you what I am thankful for:

-My Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Without Him, I am nothing. Without Him, I would not be.

-My family. They are disjointed, and slightly dysfunctional at times, but they are mine. I love them and they love me.

-My church family. They keep me together and focused on the true meaning of life and love.

-My friends. Sometimes I feel as if we grow farther apart as time passes, but I know that I could call any of them right now and they would do whatever was in their power to help me. God has truly blessed me with some fantastic people in my life.

-My job. It's not my dream job. But I have a job. And it's got great health benefits, which we all know is so vital to our diabetes management. Right now, I feel like it is where I belong.

-My friends in the Diabetes OC. Even though I've only personally met one of my fellow bloggers, I know that I have been blessed by you all. I feel like I know so much about you and your lives, and I'm thankful for being allowed into your life.

-My country. I feel so blessed to live in this great nation.
