We are still trying to get life organized and running smooth. I never thought a few weeks ago that such a curve ball would be thrown at us but we are taking it one step at a time.
Once again we have been consumed with kindness by family and friends. There have been meals brought in by our neighbors and my awesome cousins. Remember them? I know, they were at it again even with a diabetic cookbook! Great friends have come over and convinced us to take a break. I never knew how much a trip to the mall, some cute house slippers and some yummy desert at a local restaurant could really help the soul. Our family has been amazing too! They have been trying to learn more about Diabetes and have even been almost as obsessed as I am with counting carbs. I loved it today when my sister called me from the grocery store to tell me how many carbs where in a package of Smarties. (6 in case anyone cares) We have received so many emails, phone calls, visits, hugs and more that bring me to tears every time.
I have been wearing my emotions right on my sleeve, and I can't stop the tears from coming most of the time. I received a phone call from our Pediatrician today that even that brought me to tears. My Princess climbed up on my lap and asked me why I have been crying so much lately. I responded with all that I could think of "I am crying because in everything I do and everything that I see, the Lord is right there with me. I am not alone." I told her. " Can you feel His help when you have to do something hard?" "Yes." She replied. "Well Mommy feels grateful for his help. It makes me happy to have him here with me."
I may be really stressed and tired, but I am filled to the brim with gratitude.
I am humbled.
As for her, I have been saying since she was born that there is something special about her. Stay tuned for a story about something that she did while she was in the hospital. She is amazing you guys. She has taught me so much!
