D Blog Week/Post 5

I am stepping outside the box today, by putting up a vlog of myself. Once I got started I discovered I had so much to say I had to make two videos. SO glad to see that blogger is back up. Maybe we overloaded it. LOL

You did a great job on your Vlog! You had me in tears at the end though. I think we always have a bad hair day the day we really don't want to have one. Maybe next year I will be brave enough to do one.

Rachel said...

You are such an eloquent speaker (just as in writing).

I wonder where the DOC would be without Scott...ha! But glad you found him and started blogging yourself.

Karen G said...

You, my friend, are amazing. You are my hero and you are my inspiration. Thank you for filming that. Thank you for being a part of the D-OC. Thank you for being such a bright light in our lives. Much love to you!!!

Cara said...

I love you! I'm so glad you are a part of the D-OC. You are a beautiful person & I'm so glad you chose to vlog.

Bob Pedersen said...

So awesome. Thank you for sharing with us.

Wendy said...

This was absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much for your courage. Very touching words that genuinely impacted my heart.

That was amazing, Kathy. Thank you for sharing that, and I agree with Rachel - you are a very eloquent speaker!

Whoops, I think I just posted anonymously. That last one was from me. :)

Thank you for stepping out of your comfort zone and sharing this beautiful, eloquent, and touching vlog (even though you said you were having a bad hair day, but it looked cute to me). You moved me to tears from a place deep inside tha I usually don't have access to.
Your Minnesota accent is as charming as Cara's southern accent.

Thank you again for this vlog, and for all the honest, emotionally raw feeling you share. You are such an inspiring human being.
Thanks be to you.

Kim said...

This was beautiful. Thank you so much for getting in front of the camera - that takes guts. :)

Joanne said...

Glad you chose to post those videos... they were beautiful, the last part of the second one had me in tears.

Zazzy said...

Oh wow - I can't even begin to put into words. First, you were so brave to step out of that box - not something I can do yet. And it was so wonderful to put a voice and - that something extra you get beyond words on a page. Plus, love you too.

Molly said...

Simply awesome! Way to push out of your comfort zone. (and I didn't notice a MN accent. Wonder why? :-)

Beautiful post...I just want to reach through my screen and give you a big hug! Thank you for sharing...'Thanks be to life' will stay with me...and I giggled when you said 'where are all these people with diabetes coming from'....like zombies from out of the dark? haha =)

Scott K. Johnson said...

Kathy, I am so damn PROUD of you.

You are overflowing with wisdom and gratitude for all of the beauty that life brings along with all of the challenging times.

I am so thankful to know you Kathy. You have influenced my life in many ways. :-)

Kathy,
Eloquent, touching... full of emotion and love. You are trying an inspiration to all of us and I recall vividly when we first met online four years ago. Here's to MANY more years with the D!!!

Here's a link to the video and the lyrics:
* Gracias a la vida (by Mercedes Sosa) is one of my favorite songs of all time:

Hi, my name is Reyna. I found you through Karen's blog...with her VLOG. I am the mom of Joe. He is 7. He was diagnosed with type 1 over 4 1/2 years ago when he was 3. You are a courageous woman. I am so thankful for viewing this tonight. I am crying...out of gratitude for your graciousness...it is genuine. I appreciate that.

Love to you.

Natalie said...

Thank you for making the video. I am so glad you survived, because you still have so much to offer in life. I know how hard dialysis is, and even so, it is a choice for life, and I admire you for enduring it and allowing it to keep you with us.
