Feast, Family, Fun?
Tomorrow is the day. Thanksgiving.
I'm grateful. Grateful for so many things. I'm even grateful that I was diagnosed with diabetes. Let me explain... I had a friend that died at diagnosis, just 1 month after I was diagnosed. That makes me appreciate my life a little more. Diabetes is also treatable, and for that I'm thankful.
I'm also a little melancholy. Things are different this year. My view of family, food and holidays have changed. I'm skeptical of how they will behave, how I will behave and also how my blood sugars will behave. Last Friday was my trial run that failed, and I'm not sure tomorrow will be better. But I hope.
I will make my cheesecake (again!) and drive my new car on a road trip for the first time. I will have my fiance and family to join me as I carefully dodge between getting a ticket, and making good time. Good company, good food and I determined to have a good time.
May all of you have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving holiday.
