I had a plan to sit and write a new blog post. It was a toss up between that yummy Crispy Duck with Date Glaze and Pomegranate Reduction that I made earlier this week and the Vietnamese Steamed Chicken I made today… which had both ousted the delicious Duck Breast Stir Fry that I made for lunch today while waiting on the chicken to cook. And then… The Finjan called in excitement… “and to think the cover story!” Of course, I thought she meant being listed on the cover- you know those blurbs about what’s in the issue- but she meant the actual cover story.
Friends, food lovers, and countrymen, I made the cover story today. I found out at 11:00pm but not a moment too late. I made the cover. Thank you Brenda from Mideats for sharing your experience, which added value to the article. Thank you to my readers who read every issue, thank you to those who take the time to write your feedback to my editor at firstname.lastname@example.org, and thanks to those who apply the knowledge and send me good karma.
And if that wasn’t enough, this lovely reader comment was published:
Kari Heron’s weekly articles are generally interesting but last week’s notes on diabetes in particular caught my attention (The Low Carb Diva: 10 kilos lighter, August 19). I too have watched a close aunt suffer the effects of Type 2 diabetes for most of her adult life, all because she couldn’t make that lifestyle change. Like Kari’s grandma, she still sneaks plenty of sugar into her food while blaming the medication and doctors alternatively for not curing her completely. It’s a life of denial, more than anything else, but I’m still hoping for a change before it’s too late.
It’s great to be recognized but it is even greater to connect with people. This is what I truly strive for in all I do.
I will go to bed happy.
