By The Way...

In case I haven't mentioned it before....

Over the past week or so, I've gotten some awesome support of my new blogging adventure here.

I've received some encouraging e-mails.

I've felt loved by the DOC and other D Moms in a way I've never felt before.

Please feel free to say hello anytime.

Here's a few of the many excerpts that have touched my (candy) heart:

You don’t know me personally, however I feel as if we have been friends forever from reading your blog.  It was because of you I was able to write my experience with diabetes, something I don’t think I ever faced until I wrote it.  Your blog gives me strength on days I don’t have much, it gives me hope on days when I have lost all hope, but most of all it makes me realize I am not alone out here as a diabetic mom.

I have read your blog a couple of times( hope you don't mind) and just wanted to say thank you. You and your testimony and your blog posts have been an amazing encouragement to me the past several months. My husband is deployed to Afghanistan and we had just moved to Tennessee right before he left, I didn't know many people, wasn't really set up at a church and didn't like driving to Nashville for diabetes care. While I still don't like driving to or in Nashville all that much, everything else has changed and God is so good, always!

I must say, this is a first for me-- I love the blogwarming party :)
Wendy, you are just THE best!!

I love reading your blog. It keeps me motivated and reminds me that I am not alone in this Diabetic World. LOVE YOUR BLOG.

Love your blog! Thank you for sharing and encouraging! 

In case you ever thought that I don't read my comments....or that I don't check my e-mail....PLEASE know that I do!

Your kind words motivate and inspire me beyond measure.

You see, if I tried to talk to you about our journey,  I'd probably start to cry.  My voice begins to quiver.  I feel the lump in my throat.  It's just emotional for me.  What can I say?  I'm an emotional girl.

The truth is that I can't talk about it.

But I can write it.

And so, to Candy Hearts Readers everywhere,

This is for you...
 Calling All Angels

I need a sign to let me know you're here
All of these lines are being crossed over the atmosphere
I need to know that things are gonna look up
'Cause I feel us drowning in a sea spilled from a cup

When there is no place safe and no safe place to put my head
When you feel the world shake from the words that are said

And I'm calling all angels
I'm calling all you angels

I won't give up if you don't give up
I won't give up if you don't give up

I need a sign to let me know you're here
'Cause my TV set just keeps it all from being clear
I want a reason for the way things have to be
I need a hand to help build up some kind of hope inside of me

And I'm calling all angels
I'm calling all you angels

When children have to play inside so they don't disappear
When private eyes solve marriage lies cause we don't talk for years
And football teams are kissing Queens
and losing sight of having dreams
In a world that what we want is only what we want until it's ours

I'm calling all angels
I'm calling all you angels 

Thank You.
From my CANDY HEART to yours,
