Occasionally I get into what I call "funks" where my motivation is low and feel like I am tipping over the edge of depression. When I really start feeling this way I go volunteer at our local food pantry/ soup kitchen. Helping others not only makes me feel good because the people are just the sweetest on earth but reminds me how good I have it even when I feel I don't have a lot. I did this, this morning, but today I went on a special mission. Everything, we prepared was diabetic friendly on the menu this morning I also was given several bundles of meters and strips to give to the ministry to pass out to those who may need it compliments of my doctors office. With more jobs being lost the ministry is finding itself in dire straits because there are more people in need of help. The shelves were practically bare and what was left was obviously given at Thanksgiving and nothing would serve a diabetic well. I implore you all, if you can, to reach out to your local pantry or church that services those in need right now and help with whatever you can, if you can't afford to bring donations, volunteer some time, offer an ear or a shoulder. You will benefit from it I promise! Have a great day!
