Things Come In Threes


There have been so many wonderful things in my life. So many. Too many to even list or share with you. But there have been 3 things in my life that were the hardest to live through. One of them was the diagnosis of my tiny, tow-headed 3 year old daughter; Type 1 Diabetes. Just thinking about that moment is enough to send me in a tailspin of sobs. It was God's way of saying, 'Huh. Don't like needles eh?' Well, how about this?' It was the universe's way of shouting, 'What's important? What will you do? When will you make the change?' I cried in the tub for 2 hours straight. I cried for 2 days straight after I gave her the first needle. Bless oranges. They were my target practices. Please join me on Sat. Nov. 14th and post a 'BLUE POST' to commemorate United Nations World Diabetes Day. The Globe is set to go blue for World Diabetes Day! At the time of writing this post, more than 660 monuments - including the Empire State Building, London Eye, Christ the Redeemer, Burj al Arab and the Obelisque in Paris – confirmed they will bathe in blue for World Diabetes Day. Will you create a BLUE POST, or post a BLUE PHOTO with a link to UN World Diabetes Day or will your blog background go BLUE for Nov. 14th? I will hug you until eternity.

A very touching post and a heartfelt boost for awareness of this very challenging disease. I will get some BLUE on my Blog or if my template does not support it, I will put a post up about this important day.

The first grandchild of one of my dearest friends was diagnosed with childhood diabetes when he was about your daughter's age. I know how hard it has been on my friend, and my heart aches for you. Robert is eleven now, the same age as my granddaughter, and has learned to manage his situation extremely well. He is even playing football, much to the consternation of my friend! Wishing you and your precious daughter all my best!

All the best to you and your daughter. (My best friend has diabetes, she's 48 and has had it since she was 16......she's helped me cope with my dog..... Cathy G

I had no idea one of your little ones had diabetes. So hard for such a little one.
