My post yesterday had nothing to do with Valentine’s Day. I didn’t know how the blog world would embrace the holiday, so I didn’t. There was everything from I Love You’s to shout-outs to friends to the all amazing plea to a pancreas.
I spent the day focusing on holding a small hand. We walked around town talking about the importance of Valentine’s Day because it’s a day to tell those important to you that they are important. We talked about her friends, and family, and stuffed animals. We talked about the things we love, like skiing, and why we love everything in our life. We talked about ways to be nice to people. And even when I told her she didn’t need to hold my hand anymore, she still reached up and held it (and then proceeded to tickle it).
I realized that I didn’t do exactly what I was suggesting she do. I’ve made my amends with my real life people, but I haven’t made those amends with the DOC. When I read other blogs, and I talk to you on twitter, it’s a space for me to open up, to deal with the craziness that is diabetes. To help survive. So yesterday, of all days, I should’ve said thank you. But since I missed that, I will say it today. Thank you.
