Diabetes Art Day! August 31, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — singlewhitediabetic @ 7:08 pm

I loved Diabetes Art Day last year and am excited to participate again. However, it isn’t as I had planned. I have all my art supplies at home and last week was called to Arkansas unexpectedly when my mom had some struggles post-surgery. So today I started thinking of what I could do without “supplies”…

After a pretty stressful day I was taking a drive and found myself playing with my pump tubing. I looked down at it around my fingers and thought it looked kind of artistic. After a few minutes I decided to “make” this picture that I’m titling:

Making Peace with Diabetes!

 

Really beautiful song August 8, 2011

I was watching some “Celebrity Rehab” recently and saw Mindy McCready sing this song. It was very touching, so I’m buying it on iTunes but thought I’d post it here too. It’s called “I’m still here”

I’m okay, I’m alright
Hurricanes and train wrecks only last one night
Would you believe all I’ve been through?
Had the hands of tempted fate
Oh, if you only knew
What it costs, how I wait
What I got, what I gave

Chorus:
I’m still here…
After the heartache, after the storm blew through
I kept me and it saved me
I’m still standin’, right where you left me
On a cold dark cloud, with nowhere to fall but down
Like a single, naked unrelenting tear…
I’m still here

There was darkness, all around me
There were times I was sure I was drowning
There were people, who tried to reach me
But no matter how they loved me, I kept sinking
I got tired on my own hand, I reached inside and I saved myself

This time I can survive.
I ain’t dying on nobody else’s cross
I ain’t sufferin’ no more unforgivin’ loss
Oh, no.

I’m still here…
After the heartache, after the storm blew through
I kept me and it saved me
And I’m still standin’, right where you left me
On a cold dark cloud, with nowhere to fall but down
Like a single, naked unrelenting tear…
I’m still here
I’m still here
