Moments of Wonderful

Moments of Wonderful - …rather than a lifetime of nothing special. A diabetes blog.

By any other name

On Sunday I got back from one of the most refreshing and exhausting weeks of my life. I have attended Children with Diabetes: Friends for Life before (twice) but there was something different this year. Something wonderful!
felt like a blog shout out
There is plenty to say about everything I learned in the sessions – how amazing it is to have all the top experts in research/mental health issues/technology/and anything else you can think of all in one place.

This year was so incredible because of this –

Most of the time, this whole diabetes thing kinda sucks. But the people, they are incredible and truly (new) friends for life.

Edited to add friends: Martin, Kim, Jess, Karen, Jacquie, Josh (newly Type Boring), Brian, George, Scott, Heather, Lee Ann, Scott, Shay, Bennet, Courtney, and Kerri! Whew!

    This post (and the pictures) make me happy. 🙂

    You one of the three best roomies a girl could ask for! (Yes, Becca totally counts.) I’m glad things turned out the way they did, and “Go for the ‘no'” is now my new mantra.

    You rock!!

    It was magical, wasn’t it? Sigh…. Funny how coming home from something so incredible is totally a mixed bag. I was riding the wave of joy and the fierce separation depression all at the same time.
