Welcome to a piece of our sweet journey of life. This blog is about our family life-- my husband, my type 1 diabetic kindergartner, my spunky pre-schooler, my newborn baby girl, and myself! Enjoy!

A Lighthearted Chuckle

Accu-Chek is really great about sending informational emails that include tips, tricks, simple videos on changing the time & date of the Accu-Chek Nano meter during time change, etc.  For Valentine's Day, they sent an email with a Love Letter to Diabetes.  I thought I'd share the link here and post the letter on the blog.

A love letter to diabetes

Dear Diabetes,
It's true. When I first found out about you, I wasn't interested. I didn't think I had a type—or that I needed one. Now look at us. We've figured each other out and, dare I say it? We get along pretty well most days.
Sure, sometimes I think you're too needy. And, like my blood sugar, our relationship has had its ups and downs.
But it hasn't been all bad.
I noticed that when some people get comfortable in a relationship, they let themselves go. Not us. You've always spurred me on to take care of myself—trying new things, moving my body, keeping it together in a buffet line.
You've introduced me to an amazing circle of friends, online and off, and shown me who I can really count on.
And even when I'm putting you first, we both know I'm the one who comes out ahead.
Relationships can be scary, but once a person has mastered needles and treating lows, just about everything is doable. You've taught me how strong I am in the ways that matter most.
I may not ever have chosen you, but here you are—for better or for worse. This Valentine's Day, as I enjoy some delicious dark chocolate in your honor (or 15g of conversation candy hearts if I go low later today), I promise, I'll be thinking of you.

Thank-you, Accu-Chek for bringing smiles into our day!

Until Next Time,

Much love, Reba

*I was not asked to write this post for Accu-Chek.  I was simply so enamored by this email that I wanted to share it on the blog.
