Simple pleasures and Birthday cake!

Saturday I attended a fun birthday party for a special 4 year old neighbor. My daughter and 3 of my grandchildren were there also. It was a fun day and I even had a small slice of birthday cake. I am so glad that I found out that I do not have to completely give up everything I enjoy!

Life is good !

I had a wonderful visit with a Endocrinologist last week. I am so glad that I made that appointment. They gave me so much more information on  diabetes and my diet than my primary Dr. I now know that I do not have to give up all the foods I like, just have to have them in moderation. I even had a little cheese grits last night with my oysters and fish ! We have been in the high 90's and some triple digits so I am spending most days inside with the air-conditioning, rereading  "Gladys Tabers" stillmeadows sampler, watching movies and shopping on-line for the Grandchildren some new school clothes. I am enjoying the summer and looking forward to fall ! Life is good !

Everything will be alright !

It has been almost 4 months since I was diagnosed with diabetes. It has been the most difficult time of my life. I had never really been sick before and I was so sick! The combination of the meds, strict diet, fear and depression really hit me hard but the past few days I have turned the corner. I have my energy back, I am eating more, for so long I was afraid to eat and lost too much weight too fast, for the first time I cooked a big meal for my family, even made a banana pudding! I also went out to a new restaurant and was able to eat like everyone else and enjoy it! Also I felt well enough to go for a new hair cut and pedicure this weekend. I now know that everything will be alright! Thanks to everyone for the prayers, encouragement, emails,messages and cards!

Happy 4th of July ! ! !

My holiday weekend is beginning today! I am looking forward to a very relaxing one! This afternoon The Hallmark "Christmas in July" movies begin. I love Christmas in July! Tomorrow my daughter will be here from Baton Rouge, it will be so good to have her home! We will be enjoying good food, family and friends all day then beautiful fireworks from my front porch! Our neighborhood does a wonderful fireworks show, so I do not even have to leave the comforts of home to enjoy it all!
