This a posted sentiment that I wrote on my facebook but somehow, it felt like the only one that I wanted to write. Diaversaries are like that... whatever works for whenever you need it.
This is what I needed to say today. My heart is full of 8 years of learning through love. I need to thank her for being the strong person that has led the way for me and all around her. She has made me a better person.
"Today, exactly 8 years ago, our just-turned 3 year old, little girl was rushed to the hospital with a blood sugar of over 800 mg/dl and with an A1c of 13.7. After a week long stay at our local children's hospital and endless learning curve; today, she has proven that Type 1 Diabetes and Hashimoto, both autoimmune diseases of no known origin and with out a cure, will NEVER stop her from the love of learning, feeling the freedom of belly laughs and accomplishing anything her heart sets out to do. Such a priviledge to be taught so many wonderful lessons through her determination to succeed, joy at all that life offers and best of all, endless HOPE for a CURE. I am proud of you, youngest daughter. You have taught many and continue to do so. The world is better because of YOU!"
