It's such a simple Thanksgiving for us this year. Matthew is alive and we are thankful.
I will never forget the doctor looking at us in the emergency room. "If it weren't for insulin, Matthew would die this year." It took my breath away. Quite frankly, it still does sometimes. I look at that precious vial of insulin and I am so grateful. I see Matthew running around like a crazy-man, and I am so grateful.
Without insulin, Kevin and I would spend the holiday season mourning, instead of celebrating.
So, despite the toll it has taken....on our marriage (we're figuring it out)....our brains (so much to learn!).....our finances (sigh)....our sleep (or lack thereof)......we are CELEBRATING.
So much to be thankful for this year.
So true -
Absolutely! The year of "firsts" is hard Tracy...I am so glad that you are looking at it in the most positive light possible. I was a little negative our first Thanksgiving...Joe had only had "d" for 2 months and my dad had died like 2 days prior to Thanksgiving that same year...I was a mess. Looking back...at that time...makes me even more thankful this year.
Agreed! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.
Fight for your marriage.
Glad you had a good thanksgiving. Email me!
Happy (belated) Thanksgiving dear friend. It is the small things, (and the big things, like insulin!) that keep us going!
