On this day, let pride win. Instead of feeling the hurt, the pain, the grief over diabetes being in the life of your child, why not choose NOT TO GIVE IT SO MUCH attention—-just on this one day. Brag about your child. Be proud. Brag to us all……about anything.
Choose the fact that your child went to practice today to play a sport they love.
Choose the fact that your child rehearsed for the school play today, because they love to sing and/or act.
Choose the fact that they checked their own blood sugar.
Choose the fact that they played with their friends.
Choose the fact that they went o a full day of school.
Choose that they made you or a family member laugh or smile.
Choose that they were playing with your pet today.
Choose that they told you they loved you.
Choose that they did something without being asked.
Choose that on this day……you decided that diabetes should just not be in the spotlight. Even if they went low or high, choose to celebrate that they bounced back and got back ‘into whatever they were doing’.
Just for today….do not let diabetes remind you how much it can do, choose to let diabetes know what it won’t do……………………just for today. Feels good….don’t it?
Try it again tomorrow……..three days in a row you will have a pattern. But……it…..begins…..with today.
Choose. What will you choose to brag about????……..PLEASE SHARE.
