Thankful

"He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not,
 but rejoices for those which he has."


~Epictetus 



Thankful for
insulin, 
which saves my little girl's life each and every day.

Thankful for
a great team of doctors and CDEs,
who help keep Grace healthy and on track.

Thankful for
technology, 
which allows Grace the freedom to feel like an 8 year old girl.

Thankful for
the morning sun and the evening moon, 
because each day is not guaranteed to any one of us, 
but each day that I see each one of them is indeed
a blessing that was granted.

Thankful for
my family,
 who has, above all else,
 endured
 and been strengthened by this journey.

Thankful for
the Diabetic Online Community, 
who get me through, lift me up and make me feel like I can do this. 
Thank you is not enough for all you guys and gals out there.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

I'm down in your neck of the woods for the weekend. I, too, am truly grateful for friends like you that I've met on the DOC. I hope you have a great Thanksgiving. All my best to Grace!
