Thank you dear blogger friends for your encouragement! It means more than you know! I am having a better day today. As I think back about things that have happened in the past it seems that I panic at first then pull my self together and get on with whatever has to be done. I think the biggest concern for me is that I will not be able to do all the things for my family that I have always done, baking cakes, cooking holiday meals with everyones favorite dishes, but I will figure it out. I have been on the Atkins diet since diagnosed and my b.s. levels are down and weight is falling off! Another thing that frightened me was that I know several people that have lost limbs and eyesight to this disease, but I am trusting God and believing that this will not happen. Again thank you all for your kind comments and concern!

It has been a long 3 weeks since I found out that I am diabetic. That has been all that I can think about regardless of where I am or what I am doing. I have made appointments with a podiatrist and diabetes clinic and eye specialist to see if there has been any damage done. I know I am in depression, as I have had that before. I pray that I can soon accept this condition and what ever the future holds.

It was 29 degrees when we got to the Grandson's soccer tournament but it warmed up to the 60's with sunshine, so it was a great day for soccer! Sunday we went to St. Marks and toured the Nina and Pinta, replicas of the ships used by Christopher Columbus on his voyage across the Atlantic in 1492.It was another weekend filled with "simple pleasures". I know that as Jim's COPD gets worse there will be a time when we cannot do these things,so it makes them all the more special!

The weather was beautiful in N. Florida this past weekend! Saturday was a birthday party at a local park and Sunday was a beautiful day on the St. Marks River. 75 and sunny is great this time of year! Today was rainy and later in the week it is getting cold again but that's o.k. if it was beautiful every day, we would not appreciate it as much!
