I am so relieved to complete this year because we have officially lived through all the seasons with diabetes. We now know what to expect at all manner of school party, survived not just one, but two baseball seasons plus a myriad of other candy filled holidays. We swam with diabetes, ran with diabetes, laughed with diabetes and cried with diabetes. We have run a gamut of emotions not usually seen outside of a Lifetime movie. Matt and I both feel like we have aged about 7 years in 12 months and he finally found his first gray hair. We are now at a gray hair ratio of Melissa's 1000 to Matt's 1 but oh, how that one made me so very happy. I know it's petty but I just tuck the memory of that single gray hair (which I also discovered by the way, increasing my glee ten fold) and pull it out (pun intended) whenever I need a little pick me up!
This new life is changing and refining his heart for great things and I can't wait for day 20,426.
