Happy Thanksgiving

This year as I sit back and reflect I realize that I have a lot to be thankful for, that its almost difficult to put into words.

I have a loving family, a roof over our heads and food to eat. 

We've worked hard each step of the way.  Nothing was just handed over to us, and I think that's why we are able to appreciate what we have so much. 

I made my way through 8 years of university to get a job I love (most days!); We've worked on our relationship for over 15 years and have been married for the last 7; We started in a small minihome and have since moved and are renovating our "forever" home; And both of our beautiful girls are now in school, Amy in grade 2 and Rylie started kindergarten.

I often wonder why diabetes became a part of our lives. 

Why us?  What did we do wrong?  Could we have changed anything......

and of course the answer is NO.

We have to deal with the cards that life has handed us and do the best we can. 

Today, I'm also thankful for the insulin that keeps my baby alive; for the advancements in technology that make it all a little bit easier; for the endless research that is conducted searching for a CURE; and the HOPE that I still have that someday my family can say.....

Diabetes USED to be a part of our lives.
