Every week day at 11:35 am I hold my breath and wait to see how the rest of my day is going to go. When Cara walks in that door from school at 11:35 all it takes is one look, one look and I can tell if I'm in for a good or bad day!
Will she come in with a wonderful big smile from cheek to cheek, wide eyed and sharing a bunch of funny and charming stories from school?
Will she come in with the nastiest look on her face with no eye contact. When I try and talk to her she looks at the ground and TELLS me how hungry she is and makes a growling noise when she is not impressed with the lunch menu.
Will she come in the door with her head on my father's shoulder being carried and having a lifeless body and look on her face because she does not have the energy to walk the 3 doors down from the bus stop.
All it takes is one look!
Every day at 11:35 am I hold my breath and hope to see the sweet, wide eyed, smiley faced Cara, telling me all the wonderfully funny stories from her morning at school but because of Diabetes because of this awful disease I see less and less of this little girl. I miss this little girl, but I DO cherish and I am very thankful for every moment that I get to spent with whatever side of Cara I get to see walking through my door at 11:35am!
