DIABETES BLOG ENTRY 7: My Favorite Things/Blog Week….In Song of Course

My Favorite thingsDay 7 for Karen Graffeo’s (who blogs and hosts at Bittersweet Diabetes) Diabetes Blog Week. The fifth annual Diabetes Blog Week started Monday and today is the last day.  Congratulations on a simple idea that grows each year. Today is our favorite things about this week.  So with apologies to Rogers and Hammerstein (and surely Julie Andrews as well); to the tune of “My Favorite Things” here is just a tiny retrospective of this week, Happy Fifth Anniversary Blog Week Bloggers and thanks Karen for the opportunity.

My Favorite Things
Stories of events, galas, great stories, and joggers
A week put aside to hear from the bloggers
Stories of kids being wonderful queens and great kings
These are a few of my favorite things

T1 Ramblings and Dboy and Ribbon
Also we heard from an American in Dublin
Alive with Injections, medic bracelets and rings
These are a few of my favorite things

Probably Rachel, Rolling in D, were a start
Diabetesaliciusness, TuDiabetes, and my Diabetic Heart
All telling stories this week moving to spring
These are a few of my favorite things

When the D bites, when the D stings
When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite blogs
And then I don’t feel so bad

A Sweet Life, Vickis’s Notebook, gladly they’ll share
T1 International, and Insulin with My Sugar Bear
And reading RfamHere’s Ramblings
These are all my favorite things

Diabetic Diary, My Superhero and D
Pincushions, and Sparkles, and Carbs will all be
Manny bloggers more who flew with their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

So now the week’s all over and done
hundred’s of writings, some written, some sung,
So thanks are in store for all and Ms. Graffeo
For sharing things all, things we should know

When the D bites, when the D stings
When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite blogs
And then I don’t feel so bad

I simply remember my favorite blogs
And then I don’t feeeeeeeeeeel so baaaaaaaaad.

  1. Ah, the Sound of D-Music…. definitely one for the pancreas to roll over and listen to. Great poem to wrap up the week, Tom, and all wonderful voices to highlight. Thanks for this.

    • Thanks Mike, and being involved in 3 different productions of it (once playing Captain Von Trapp and twice playing Max, his best friend) it bought back great memories. Thanks for writing.
