2nd Annual Diabetes Blessings Week
The season of Thanksgiving is upon us once again. It is a season in which we should reflect upon the many blessings in our lives and express our gratitude for them. And despite all of our complaints about living with this disease, I know that diabetes has blessed each of us in one way or another. So many of you joined me in celebrating those blessings last year and made the inaugural Diabetes Blessings Week an unqualified success. And as the season has drawn nearer, many have asked if the event would be repeated this year.
So, with that in mind, I am announcing today that November 21nd through November 27th will be the 2nd Annual Diabetes Blessings Week.
I invite all of my fellow D-Bloggers and D-OC members to use those 7 days to reflect upon the blessings that have come to them because of diabetes, and devote at least one blog post to the subject. For those inclined to accept, I challenge you to write a post each day of Diabetes Blessings Week. And, of course, you should then tweet about your posts on Twitter and use the #DBlessingsWeek hashtag, and submit your posts to the list on the Diabetes Blessings Week page here on MDH. The image above can be used as a participant badge on your blog.
So please, spread the word about Diabetes Blessings Week, and I’ll be looking forward to reading about everyone’s blessings.
PS: Please leave a comment below to let me know if you plan on participating. Thanks!
Hey Mike, this is a great idea! I’m already blogging each day for NHBPM but I’ll tag on a blessing each day! Count me in!
Sounds good to me… I usually do my One Thousand Gifts posts on Monday, but this week I’ll stretch it out a little over the whole week in honor so I can take part in this.
I’ll be using the #NHBPM Health Activist Choice on Wednesday to express mine 🙂
