A Note of Thanks
People are working so hard on finding a cure. It's up to use to raise the money to help these amazing people who take their time to ending not only diabetes but many other diseases. Many of us are aware about the study about the contacts that help diabetics determine their glucose levels and just the idea of an end to finger poking is a delight in itself but beyond the idea of no more pricking, there are people working so hard trying to make it easy for you, me and everyone else.
It was a little spontaneous that I decided to email a thank you to Jin Zhang whom is an assistant prof. at Western University, London, Ontario. Prof. Zhang created these contacts and I couldn't help but thank her and appreciate what she is doing.
I think that it is important to let people know your appreciation. We can admire from afar but I think that it makes a difference when you let the person know just how much you appreciate what they said or did.
I know that when I receive letters from people about my blogs it makes me feel a lot better about what I am doing and helps me stay motivated and positive.
A simple note of thanks can go a long way.
