Free Hugs…

The farmer’s market at the Embarcadero in San Francisco is spectacular! Anytime we are visiting the city, our Saturday morning includes a round-about walk that lands us in the midst of the the most dazzling display of organic veggies, fruit, breads, flowers, cheeses, nuts, and so much more…and today we sampled all of it, including free hugs.

We saw these two young adults coming towards us on the crowded sidewalk, and the young man caught my eye and smiled…and asked, “Would you like a free hug”? There was only one answer, and yes it was a yummy hug, during which he told me that he and his friend were simply sharing the love. Simple, joyous, and oh so sweet.

The best thing I did when I discovered I had Type 2 Diabetes was to call Robin Mallery. She coached me to craft a plan to turn this condition around, and the encouragement to believe that I can.  Instead of feeling overwhelmed, I am managing well, using Robin’s program of small steps, achievable goals, and positive reinforcement.  She’s not only a fountain of knowledge and experience, but a loving teacher and motivator.  For the first time in years, I don’t feel helpless about eating and weight gain.  Thank you, Robin!
