I know I've said before that diabetes limits me. But yesterday I found something that I CAN DO.

I moved this giant rock about 300 yards UP HILL!

My sister was in the woods yesterday and found this. When I got home from work, she asked me to help her move it. I said yes, not knowing that this thing was MASSIVE. I could barely life the thing into the wheelbarrow! My sister said we could quit at any time, but I never did :)

I broke our wheelbarrow getting it up here, but I think it was worth it!
Diabetes or not, this thing was a challenge!

Wow, that's an unusual rock. It feels good to be strong, doesn't it? You're growing up!

Wow, that's huge. Really something to haul something that weighs close to or more than you do!
