Today the kids got dressed in there type 1 shirts and went to school, our blue lights were lit on our house and I made a few post on facebook about the amazing Banting and his wonderful life saving discovery insulin.
Happy Birthday BTW Dr. Banting and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
My husband and I tried to do something special for today. We thought about driving to London to visit the Banting House for an event that was being held. However I had read a few things on the internet that suggested that the event was canceled, I tried to call to confirm but no answer and that was that.
I had nothing left in me to try and make this day exciting and special for Cara and our family. World Diabetes Day seems to bring the worst out in me. I really have no idea why? I really am excited and I really want people to understand, I really want to be part of the unity, education and love...but there is just something about this day.
Today, for me = ONE BIG FAIL
I opened up my mailbox and found something special from a very special Sophia.
A little while ago I had signed Cara up for a World Diabetes Day Postcard Exchange the brain child of Lee Ann at The Butter Compartment
And today the postcard arrived and saved my World Diabetes Day. Thank you Sophia and Sophia's mom and dad for signing her up and making the most beautiful World Diabetes Day Postcard EVER.
Thanks to Lee Ann for organizing this event and giving Cara and my family something special on this very special day, even though their mom can't get her act together.
|Cara super excited to open her postcard|
|Cara LOVES her postcard, she is bringing it to school tomorrow|
NOW I JUST HOPE THAT OUR POSTCARD MADE IT ON TIME TO SOPHIA?
