I am 56 years old and was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes in May of this year. Trying to control it with diet and exercise and so far so good. I live in Atlanta and have been married for 3 years now to a wonderful guy. I also have 2 grown sons from my previous marriage and expecting my first grandchild in March of 2015.

Update: Time sure flies. Just celebrated my 58th birthday, I have a beautiful one year old granddaughter and still very happily married. I think I'm finally getting a handle on my weight. After my A1c just kept going higher my Dr. recommended I try Atkins. Best thing I've ever done. My wonderful husband is totally on board with me (he has done it before) and keeps me on track. I feel better then ever, more energy, blood sugar is excellent, cravings are gone. 5 weeks in now and doing fantastic. It's not always easy but with the two support groups I have joined and the help of my husband I'm starting a new way of life and a new way of eating.

    Send A Drop Of Kindness
    Poet: Julie Hebert, ©2012

    Send a drop of kindness,
    And see a happy face.
    A drop of kindness goes real far,
    It may even reach outer space.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Send a drop of love,
    And feel a loving embrace.
    It feels so good to feel like,
    You are in the right place.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Send a drop of hope,
    But be that shinning star.
    Hope is wonderful to have,
    But sometimes you can't sit away so far.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Send a drop of faith,
    With a single prayer.
    And God will show the way,
    As faith is always there.
