My favorite post is one that mostly flew under the radar: 24. P.S. I forgive you.
This post describes how I chose to forgive diabetes for the bad and to reflect on the good I have received during my 24th “diaversary.” While it was not my most popular post of all time, it openly represents my emotions on a day that is always bittersweet.
Stephen’s short yet powerful comment on this blog post meant a lot to me, as did another I received via Facebook from the mother of a diabetic child who thanked me for writing the things that her son could not yet articulate at a young age. Those little moments make blogging so worth it. We can use our words to connect with and encourage others who face similar obstacles each day. #DOC in a nutshell!

That was a beautiful post. Thanks for bringing it up again and giving me a chance to re-read it — I remember reading it the first time and am surprised I didn’t comment then.
Forgiveness is all about looking past what happened before and marching forwards. I hope you’ve been able to do that since first writing that back in January.
Thanks for reading, Scott. I’m still working on the forgiving diabetes thing, but that attitude has helped a lot this year.
I loved that post, and I love your writing. Please don’t stop.
Back atcha, Stephen!
That was a great post to share!
