I was just wondering if anyone has visited the website www.diabeteshandprint.com When you send them a picture of your hand with the word that sums up how you feel about diabetes written on it. They will then put your hand in the community of hands and donate $5.00 in your name to 1 of 2 diabetic charities. I did mine today. Anything to help our cause. It is very simple.

Ok I tried to do this but I can't find my hand. I must have done something wrong.

I had another friend who is not diabetic join the cause. Her word was Courage. That is how she sees me in facing it. That is how I see her in facing her surgery...so I guess we are even.

I just did my hand and sent it in.. my word is Determination. I am determined to fight this disease with everything I have and to overcome any obstacles that get in my way. I am determined to live a healthy, happy life despite Diabetes being along for the ride.. :)

I almost used that word. It is a very good one and I agree with what you said. We will kick it in the butt!

Awww. come on! LOL....I would NEVER do that. I could just show an eye or an ear or something. My teeth are kind of nice!

I just emailed all my friends about this with my photo of my handprint. I asked them to participate and send me pics of the words that they chose. I will add any that get sent to me to my photo section for you all. This is a powerful thing.

I am so glad I mentioned this, now I feel like maybe we can do even more to help our cause. Awareness that's the first step.

this was so cool. I chose the word "Strength" and my hubby took a couple of pics. It was neat to do it, but it was also very neat to take a moment to reflect on the word, how it has changed my life. TCOYD got my donation. It is easy and fun.
