No it’s not really wordless – thats really to high an expectation for my wordy brain.
Its been 9 days since we returned from our trip to Florida for the Friends For Life conference and family time at Universal Studios/Harry Potter World. I’m still experiencing some withdrawals. I miss my friends terribly and I miss Butter Beer. (don’t judge its awesome).
I miss all the hugs. I didn’t count but I would bet I gave and received well over 100 hugs.
I had met a number of the folks I spent time with previously but there were a few that I had not met in real life prior to the trip and I didn’t realize how much I would miss them when I got home. It doesn’t make me sad to miss them, it makes me realize how easily it is to love others so deeply. I am feeling very blessed to know them.
Last night while tucking in my littlest he told me how much he likes one of them too as he held a new gift in his hand (received in the mail earlier yesterday). He fell asleep smiling and my heart was full.
This will be my last post about FFL (aside from a green bracelet post that isn’t really about FFL). For all those out there who haven’t attended FFL yet. I know it’s expensive (the traveling part and hotel part and lost time at work) but if you can pick a year and plan for it – you won’t regret it. There are also scholarships available for both families and individuals via Diabetes Scholars Foundation. If you have been and have the means maybe consider supporting the DSF to help get others to the conference.
Thank you everyone who hugged me. I still feel the love.
A HUGE thank you to my dear husband – he made the trip possible. He doesn’t get over here to read my blog very often – doesn’t really have to because I’m always babbling at him about the same stuff. Still if y’all have him in any other social media – maybe tell him he’s awesome.
