This Girls Has a Story!

Some of you may be new to my blog and some of you have been around for awhile. I have been asked a few times about the Princess' story of when she was diagnosed recently so I thought it would be a perfect time to post some links to where you can read about it. I have written about it many times since November so feel free to search my archives (maybe someday I will put labels on my posts) or email me with any questions you might have!

We had been noticing symptoms that something wasn't right for a few weeks. They were progressively getting worse too. I wrote this post when all I could do was think about it. The thought of what was wrong was keeping me up at night! I knew something was wrong but with not having insurance I didn't want to over react. I was inspired to take her to the doctor and after meeting with her doctor, I made this quick post before heading to the hospital where we spent the week.
I tried to post my thoughts each day to keep record of that time. My mind was still in shock a little, and I was so tired. Reading over this, this and this post I am not sure how I even managed a full sentence! It was so hard for me to see my 4 year old little girl getting poked SO many times. Our new life seemed overwhelming, but around every corner I could see how our lives where being blessed! To this day my heart is so full love and gratitude for all that helped, for all the prayers that were said on our behalf. See this post that I wrote about some of the ways we had been helped! It made it possible to look at the strength that she had and because of her we could handle it all! What a brave girl!
It isn't always easy though! There have been many times that are tough and it seems to be more than I can handle. But through it all my Princess can still smile, she can still be brave. She is an amazing example to all those around her.
And in case you have forgotten, we are still looking for people to join our team and to help raise money for the JDRF Walk for a Cur . See this post below on how you can help!

Reading that first post when you were concerned was making my stomach sink...seeing your words - before you knew what was happening...the concern in your heart...the slow realization that diabetes could be your reality...

So hard.

But look at you now!!!!!! You go girl...keep up the good work!

Praise Jesus for another example that God's provisions are always enough!!!

Just like the Bible says in Matthew 6:25 (KJV) -- 25Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

Dear Lord, thank you for your loving mercy!

Thank you for sharing her story! I did not realize that it had been such a short (though for you it must feel like forever) time that you have had to deal with this! I commend you AND your daughter for the bravery that you both show.

I truly hope and pray that one day you will look back at these times and say, "I can't believe how much easier it is now!" For now though, just do as you have been and take it one day at a time!

Also, I have more leftovers for you! Pretty sparkly brads for flower centers. :)

I still vividly remember our pre-D days when I knew something was wrong but couldn't figure out what. So scary. I don't know that those feelings will ever go away. They still seem so raw to me at times. You are doing a great job though. Little Princess is beautiful.
