It's good to be back!  We had a great time in Arizona and Texas braving the cold weather together with family, killing our diets and getting rested up. Let's just say we probably shouldn't eat any more dessert for about 6 months!  But we jumped into January and are enjoying the surge of will power that accompanies this time of year. 
Our patients are also feeling the heat after a month of county fair/Christmas/New Year's frivolity.  Almost all of the diabetics came in with blood sugar in the 300s and having run out of pills more than two weeks ago, despite us reminding everyone to make sure they get seen in December to get enough pills to make it through the holidays. Live and learn...  We did have a couple of folks walk the straight and narrow who came in with great, almost normal sugar levels.  One lady told me about her desire to stay healthy and stick to her diet.  I asked her how old she is and she blurted out "27" and then caught herself and said "57" and laughed.  We decided that was her soul age!
We hope everyone has a great 2015 and wish you great success in your New Year's Resolutions.  Today's devotional message from our co-worker Enrique was a good goal to add to this year's list:
 I Peter 3:8-9 (The Living Bible version):
And now this word to all of you: You should be like one big happy family, full of sympathy toward each other, loving one another with tender hearts and humble minds. Don’t repay evil for evil. Don’t snap back at those who say unkind things about you. Instead, pray for God’s help for them, for we are to be kind to others, and God will bless us for it.
