DLife Plug – Set Your DVR

Hi all,

I have been insanely busy lately. Lots of work stuff, spending time with my family, and not to mention digging out of the snow that was recently dumped on us.

I’ve always been a big “blog when you can” advocate — your blog should NOT be another stress in your life. Mince certainly is not. I like to write, but when life gets busy I do not feel pressured to get an update posted.

With that being said, I recently received an e-mail from Tom Karla at dLife. He’s a fellow writer in the Viewpoints section of dLife.com as well as Executive Producer at dLife. The next episode of dLife comes on Sunday evening, so I had to get this posted before then.

The e-mail Tom sent had a subject line that reads “A soldier’s story to share with your readers”


One of the most incredible stories you will ever watch. Sergeant First Class Mark Thompson joined the Army to serve his country. He was diagnosed with diabetes and went on an insulin pump. He was informed that he would not be deployed with his comrades because of his diabetes. He fought that decision and won – you will not believe what happened when he landed in Iraq.

A story of perseverance, a story of survival, a story to inspire.

Not sure about you guys, but I’ve got my DVR (Digital Video Recorder) all programmed just in case I miss this one.

Thank you Tom for bringing this to our attention, and thank you dLife for doing the story!

I’m off to catch up on all of your great OC Blogs, and hopefully I’ll find a slice of time to get something more written here. Until then – take care!
