Then I heard this song:
It describes so perfectly what life has been like the last 3 years. We are so thankful every day for another day. It would be poor manners to tell someone else that they aren't promised another day, but I can tell myself!
Our family has always valued our time together, but since diagnosis that time has been even more precious. We've taken a couple of weekend trips as a family and even took a vacation last year, something we hadn't done in a very long time. We all worked together this past summer. Jason and I teach at the same school, and the boys attend the same college. They even have a class together. So yes, we are embracing living life and loving each other every day, more than ever before. There aren't many things to be thankful for with diabetes, but I think living life to the fullest every single day is a pretty great thing!
