This photo was taken on October 23, 2008, about two months before I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and congestive heart failure.
This photo was taken on October 28, 2011, a full three years later, and just two months short of the third anniversary of my diagnosis.
At the time I took that first picture, I was damn near dead and didn’t even know it. Three years later, I’m full of life and living that life to the fullest.
What a difference three years has made! I’m blessed and quite thankful to have had them.
