The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, and new d-blogs are popping up everywhere!

Here are just a few of the latest that I’ve snagged from recent comments left here:

Butterfly Kisses & Bedtime Prayers: Patti, mother of two and wife of a disabled veteran, writes about her daughter’s daily dealings with diabetes. They are currently living in Hawaii but are moving back to the mainland, so Patti is looking forward to engaging in support groups and finding other diabetics.

Sugar Overdose: Diagnosed at age three, Alex in WI is nineteen years old and an admirable athlete. She’s in search of some “words of wisdom” and offers to help those recently diagnosed.

Diabetic Princess: Having just turned the big Two-Oh yesterday, Bethany in New York has started her d-blog. She came across my post, “She still smiles” on the Children With Diabetes website, and thought to start her own blog. Visit and wish her a happy belated.

This is My Life: Megan’s debut was today. She was diagnosed this past September after dealing with hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia. Acording to her, “My pancreas spazed out and created too much insulin my whole life, ’til it up and ran out of insulin this year.”

Sidenote: We put up the Christmas tree last night. White lights all over the place. Pretty silver and blue ornaments gracing the branches. We left the lights off until all the ornaments were in place so Chris could have a “tree lighting ceremony.”

We went to bed, happy with our festive little tree.

Woke up this morning to see it swaying gently as I walked into the living room, obeying some unseen breeze. Eyed it for a minute. Was I still asleep?

It leaned towards the bookcase, shuddering.

The branches rustled. I peered into the depths of the Christmas tree to see Siah, nestled happily in the bottom branches, the tree moving every time she scratched her ear with her hind leg.
