Gloomy? Tough times? Still, we have so much to be thankful for...


* When you see the sad news on TV, look for your child or your partner and smile at them... or see them smile when you make a silly joke.

* When the economy gets tough and maybe you are struggling to make payments, be thankful for the friends you have (here in the community and everywhere) and know that they are there for you.

* When diabetes kicks you in the rear and makes you feel crummy, give thanks because we are all in this together and pushing... and there's a world full of good glucose readings awaiting for us ahead.

So, to those celebrating Thanksgiving today, to those who do it on a different date and even to those who don't celebrate it at all: thanks to you! Thanks for being a friend and for being there.

Big hug to you all!
