My first time publishing on Chris's site. I do read all of Chris's links and depending on the day I either am extremely saddened or I feel really empowered by every ones strength.
The past 4 months have definitely been life altering, I took for granted simplicity... Personally I have become a stronger more humbled person. I appreciate the smaller things alot more (that's so cliche). "Daddy chasing, tickling and playing with Emma until she giggling so much she's snorting, or going to the park and Emma repeatedly going down the slide "again" "again" "again", Emma running in the house searching for her "kitty" cat so she can give him that headlock hug, or wrap him in a blanket like he's her baby (he just loves it by the way). Those moments diabetes can never take and those moments are what makes me realize Emma is a happy little girl, to her she knows no different.
I soak in every day with Chris and Emma, I love our family.
I am slowly coming to terms with the fact that Emma was given diabetes because we/she can handle it. My hope is that throughout Emma's childhood with diabetes we can teach and support her to live to her highest potential with diabetes not as a crutch but an enabler.
Thank you to everyone who supports Chris and our family.
