I was scrolling through my blog posts a little while ago and came across my post from last year. I know that time flies when you're having fun, and changing infusion sets, but A YEAR?!
Today is somewhat of a family reunion. Ya.. I like that. Every year my husband's family has a reunion the second Saturday in July. I was not raised with annual reunions like that. In fact, I don't ever recall having an official "reunion". My family would get together every Thanksgiving and Christmas for dinner and games. Nothing worked off dinner and readied you for pie like a game of horseshoes with my grandpa. I bet you can still see the scars in the yards from where the poles were placed. My husband's family has done a reunion every year. It is a perfect time to catch up with everyone, meet new loves and children, pick on cousins, and try to get as many hugs as possible. Not to mention all the food!
Not everyone in the DOC (Diabetes Online Community) is related by blood or marriage (some are and some will be), but that doesn't mean we aren't family. Alana of Life on T1 put it best in this post:
"And that's what a chosen family is. It's a group of people who are there for you no matter what happens, who are there and they say "I get it, I understand, me too.""Let's view today as our DOC Family Reunion. Let's catch up with everyone, check in to see how we are all doing, and pass around those virtual hugs. After all, you can never get too many hugs.
|Bear hugs for all|
