Last weekend was magical, as it always is whenever DOC peeps get together. A number of those present for #Febtoberpalooza (don't ask me why it's called that- ask Brian). Kim's written a post about it, as has Sara, Brian, C, and Bob. But I'm throwing my two cents in anyway.
It was a wonderful weekend. I laughed harder than I have in a long time. It didn't matter what we were doing--driving in the car, eating BBQ, going bowling, or getting ice cream (which we might have done three times)--it was all so much fun.
Like Kim, said, it soothes the soul. And I agree with her and Sara that we're all just friends at this point.
And that's what we are. I didn't tell people that my diabetes online community friends were coming for the weekend. I told them my friends were coming.
We may have all met over the internet because of diabetes, but our friendships are so much more than that. Diabetes may be what brings us together, but it's not what keeps us together. Diabetes doesn't get credit for that.

I feel so incredibly blessed to call all these people my friends. And I CANNOT WAIT till I get to see all of them again! Is it July yet?
