Admiring Our Differences

I am so busy right now that I wasn't sure  I would be able to participate in blog week this year. Well, I have decided to give it a try and to do what I can.

When I started reading D blogs the first blogs I read were written by adults living with Diabetes. I felt like I was looking into a crystal ball at what my little girls life would be like someday. I appreciate the honesty and integrity with which these adult diabetics write. It gives me a window into the future. I know she has a hard road ahead of her, but because of these blogs I also know that it really will be OK and that her life will be as full and as amazing as she chooses for it to be. I also know that because of these blogs there will be people out there for her to talk to and that they will understand her struggles even better than myself, her Dad, and her brother.

I am forever saying how grateful I am for the technology that keeps my daughter healthy and safe. I am also thankful for the technology that has allowed me to reach out to a group of people that are spread out across the country. There is such comfort and understanding in this DOC and I equally admire all of you who write and share your lives with the rest of us.
