I apologize for being MIA and not visiting blogs last week. I'd lost a dear, dear friend to diabetes. The type of friend who is more like family. He was a big brother to me, and I'm sure I'll hear his advice and wisdom in my head forever. He believed in raising kids with love, respect and patience. He was genuine, kind and hated seeing anyone suffering or being treated unfairly. He was a hero in my book.
It so happens that he passed away the same month that Brenda Novak's Annual On-Line Auction for the Cure of Diabetes is being held. I know that my friend would want nothing more than to see others win the battle against diabetes. He'd want to prevent others from suffering.
Please check out the auction. My bid last year resulted in invaluable feedback from an editor. Not a writer? There are auction items for everyone, including kids. Hurry though. The auction closes May 31st.
Peace and good health.
