Hey God, it’s me again.
I know we haven’t talked too much lately. I’m still a tad angry. The first child diagnosed with diabetes was heartbreaking, the second was just shattering.
I’m also unsure how many of my friends who lost a child due to diabetes can even function. I’m told you have a plan for all of this. People, those with more faith than me, tell me there is a reason for everything. You are divine. You have a plan.
When my second child was diagnosed and some told me how lucky I was because “God trusted me with a second child with diabetes”…..well it didn’t help. It made me angrier at you, but you know that don’t you?
But I am not here today to gripe or complain. I’m sure we will get on track again. I do live by; “There by the grace of God go I”; and even the best of friends can get angry at each other from time to time……no? But I have a question for you and if you could find a way to answer, I would appreciate it.
You see I am leaving for the UK next week and I hope to meet many new friends as I speak to parents at the Children with Diabetes FFL UK. But it got me to thinking. This diabetes ‘thing’, well it’s worldwide isn’t it? I mean parents in the UK, and in China, and across the globe–well if we parents are all praying and hoping for a cure…….and we are all around the world……….well you are hearing us……………right?
Thanks God, amen.
I’m a diabetes dad
