I hope this message has some help for many of us that have seemed to forget what this site is about. Its not about bickering, its not about being rude, its about helping and loving they neighbor. its about giving hope.
its about being shown ones Thankgivings.
Here is a prayer which i hope will be a common reminder of why we are here:
O God, you have bound us together in a commonlife. Help us in the midst of our struggles for justice and truth, to confront one another with out hatred or bitterness, and to work together with mutal forebearance and respect.
Lets show one another what we have to be thankful for. Count our blessings and show others they to have blessings. There is nothing more basic than that.
I am thankful for this group and the wonderful people in it.
I am thankful for my son and my dogs.
I am thankful that I am a healthy diabetic.
I am thankful for diabetic chocolate.
I am thankful to the researches who are looking for a cure to our disease and others.
I hope that this discussion may be a place that people may come to so they can count their blessings when they have been forgotten. Know this: you will never be forgotten.

I don't know where the time comes from that is posted on these discussions, but this one says it was posted Nov 28, 2008 at 10:19 am and my clock says its only 7:23 am. Anyway your right people shouldn't be bickering or being rude to one another. If you don't like a post don't be rude to whomever wrote it. It just might be helpful for someone else. Everyone needs to be thankful for what they got. There is other people out there that have worse health problems plus other problems on top of that. Thank you for this post. It made me think about all the things I have to be thankful for. My girls, a loving husband, my health (it could be worse) and I have a good job at a time when people are losing theirs. Thanks again Lisa

I have noticed that the times on postings are all off on my end too.

Thanks for the prayer. I hope everyone will count their blessings and give thanks for all they have, big or small. I am thankful for my hubby and daughter, my better control of my sugars and my ability to still be able to cook Thanksgiving dinner. and for my puppy and all my pets. And the ability to still afford the things we have and the job my hubby has. They are going back to 5 days next week after 2 months on 4 days. It is great.
