So I’ve been grumbling to myself about this for a few days now. While sitting around the house recovering from oral surgery – I finally had enough and decided to vent here. What am I rambling about? Paula Dean. Well, not actually her….but the public chaos swirling around her latest news about having diabetes.
It amazes me that with all of the worrisome things in the world that need attention – people find things such as this to pounce on and make a big deal out of it. So the woman has developed diabetes. It’s a terrible disease. She’s human – just like the rest of us. Could she have prevented it – most likely. Again, like many others who have diabetes…..or any other disease/illness for that fact.
We ALL have issues – things that need to be corrected or worked on. But we don’t always do that….and the reason? Who knows. It’s different for all of us. I’m overweight….I know it. I know what it takes to lose it too. Have I done those things? Nope….not completely. Sure, some weight is coming off now…..but it has taken me a LONG time to get the ball rolling. Why? Evidently because I had other issues in my life that I needed to face and deal with first.
So why can’t Paula have those same type of human traits? Why does everyone want to jump on the hate wagon about how irresponsible she is and how awful she is for having the cooking show that she does? Everyone loved her one day and turned on her the next all because they found out she had an illness?
Get real people…..
She owes us nothing. She’s a role model? Why? Why look ‘up to’ a celebrity at all? I will keep my eyes on Jesus, thanks.
