Awesome things


Awesome things:  In February the #dsma blog carnival challenged us to write about the most awesome thing we’d done DESPITE diabetes. Today let’s put a twist on that topic and focus on the good things diabetes has brought us. What awesome thing have you (or your child) done BECAUSE of diabetes? After all life with diabetes isn’t all bad!

The most awesome thing that has happened to Ally, and our whole family, because of diabetes is the level of appreciation that we have for one another.  We are much more aware of things that, at one time, we may have taken for granted.

In January, I posted about Ally's two sweet sisters.  This excerpt is my all-time favorite conversation between the girls.

Jessi:  "You know Ally, I would do ANYTHING to make your diabetes go away."

Ally:  "Aww...that's nice of you."

Jessi:  "I would even rip my whole arm off if your diabetes would go away."

Ally: "I WOULDN'T LET YOU! I'd rather keep my diabetes than have your arm ripped off!"

Jessi:  "Aww...that's so nice of you."
