Alas, my wish will not come true this year, but I have not and will not give up hope. Sometimes hope is all we have. Some cling onto hope with a glimpse of despair. My choice is not to look at hope in sadness, but to celebrate. Yes, I chose to celebrate today. I not only celebrate the birth of my Lord and Savior, but I celebrate life. I choose to live. I live with diabetes. No, I did not choose a life with diabetes, but I do choose to live with diabetes.
The Lord gives us all a mission. He came to earth over 2000 years ago with a mission. During his life, he knew his calling and fulfilled God's plan. I have a calling for my life as well. I not sure if I've found my true mission, but for now I see my calling to be:
- To be the best mother/wife/daughter/sister/friend (etc) that I can be
- To be an awesome substitute teacher, showing each child that he/she is loved and important
- To educate and advocate for diabetes, especially Type 2
