like to put
up a tree in my
heart, and instead
of hanging presents,
I would like to put the
names of all my friends.
Close friends and not so close
friends. The old friends, the new
friends. Those that I see every day
and the ones that I rarely see. The ones
that I always remember and the ones that
I sometimes forget. The ones that are always
there and the ones that seldom are. The friends of
difficult times and the ones of happy times. Friends
who, without meaning to, I have hurt, or without meaning
to have hurt me. Those that I know well and those I only know
by name. Those that owe me little and those that I owe so much.
My humble friends and my important friends. The names of all those
that have passed through my life no matter how fleetingly. A tree with
very deep roots and very long
and strong branches so that
their names may never be
plucked from my heart. So
that new names from all
over may join the existing ones. A tree with a very
pleasant shade so that our friendship may take a
moment of rest from the battles of life. "May the
happy moments of Xmas brighten every day of
the new year". These are my sincere wishes.
• The difference between God and Man being is...
God Gives and Forgives. Man Gets and Forgets!
• The difference between ability and character is...
ability will get us to the top,
but character will retain us at top.
Be at top always!

Kind of you to welcome me to this site. I'm dealing with a child that has had type 1 diabetes for just over 4 years. Anxiety and panic came along with her diagnosis and have had several challenging years but just now starting to see the light. Thanks again for the welcome.
Hi, Olga! Glad to hear you're looking to get involved... I'll be giving a talk on the role of online communities in diabetes management at this year's Trenton Computer Festival April 25-26 at The College of New Jersey. I live in North Plainfield; next-door Plainfield has large communities of Latinos from various countries as well as West Indians and African-Americans... all at-risk communities. Definitely a place where outreach could be useful.
Olga that is a very pretty new picture you posted. You know I have heard Latina have a big issue with diabetes. Same with american indians, my grandmother is indian, or was she passed when my dad was 3. My dad is Indian/german and mom is swedish/indian. I have a grandmother and grandfather one from each side that is indian and diabetes runs in the family. But I did not get it till I had kids. Any ways keep fighting the fight.
