Guru Purnima
« on: July 18, 2016, 09:28:31 PM »
In India, today we celebrate Guru Purnima. Guru means teacher or guide & Purnima is the Full Moon.
Traditionally, we pay our respects to our teachers & express our gratitude to them for helping to guide us in our journey.
I want to pay respect & express my gratitude to the many teachers that I have found on this forum (and others). Thank you for helping me take control over my diabetes and guiding me to better health.

Adding my thanks to all the people who have guided me along this way, taught me the methods that work, and pick me up when I fall. You are the best!  ~hug~

Adding my thanks too to all the people that taught me and supported me as I picked my way through all the misinformation that came from my dr and other supposed diabetic educators.  It is great to be among like minded people!!

A wonderful tradition.  The people of this community have been my teachers and mentors from the start of my gaining control of my diabetes and I don't think I would have been where I am today without them.   ~tku~
