Tomorrow (Halloween) I will celebrate 32 years of Diabetes goodness.
I don’t know quite what the day will bring, but you can bet that some form of chocolate and or cupcakey deliciousness will come into play.
I will celebrate with joy.
Yes you heard me, JOY.
Joy that much like the little girl from long ago, I continue to learn and still laugh loudly and from my belly.
And I will rejoice in the fact that I make others laugh and learn
I will celebrate that I am still silly, sensitive, and serious.
I will celebrate every blood sugar- the good ones and the not so good.
I will celebrate every bump in the road traveled, and cherish everyone one I’ve met- including YOU.
I will wave my Diabetes Flag HIGH and hope that you will join me and do the same!
I will relish who I am, who I was, and what I’ve become.
The good, the bad, and the Diabetesaliciousness of of it all~
And I will continue to grasp at the golden rings at this thing called life.
The one thing I will not do is mourn the little girl whose pancreas broke and whose life changed forever that Halloween long ago.
Mourning is for the dead, and I am the girl who not only lived, but has become a woman who continues to do so every day.
