I was born in the age of the dinosaur (meaning I’m older than dirt) and I have four children, four grandchildren, five great grandchildren and one husband that I’ve been married to for over 50 years now. (I did mention I’m old, didn’t I?)
Two long-haired Himalayan cats — both with highly independent attitudes — oversee my daily activities, stalking me in the kitchen, especially when I use the can opener, and carefully and thoroughly covering everything in the house (including me) with long, thick cat fur.
To be very honest, there isn’t much over the years I haven’t tried – except drugs, smoking and cheese. I’m allergic to cheese and even though I grew up in the hippy era, I never had the slightest desire to experiment with drugs or cigarettes. (I’ve always been a bit of a rebel, not quite fitting in with the rest of my peers.)
I’ve done everything from cutting chives in the fields to selling products at home parties to being an author of children’s historical picture-books-in-rhyme. I love crafting beautiful and unique things (especially with my Cricut Maker cutting machine), cooking, reading, writing, fishing and playing adventure games on my iPad – but not the “shoot ’em up” kind).
My passions in life are my husband and my family, writing, crafting and talking. I’m a Christian, but I rarely talk about it – my love for God is deep and personal although I usually keep Him to myself. I especially love 💕 sharing my passions with others, helping them to not make the same mistakes I have made, making other people’s lives easier and less stressful.
Which brings us to this Blog about living with diabetes. If there are mistakes diabetics can make, I’ve probably made them. If there are things diabetic people shouldn’t do, I’ve probably done them. If there’s a wrong way to live as a diabetic, I’ve most likely been right there in the thick of it.
And that’s what this Blog is all about — how you can avoid many of the mistakes I’ve made in the past 20+ years and how together we can move forward, making our lives better, more meaningful, healthier and happier — in spite of having diabetes.
