At Least

My mother spoke a few words this morning that I thought I would never hear her say “At least Ava only has diabetes”. Don’t get me wrong it is a life we didn’t expect or feel like we deserved and I have always believed that god will give us what we can handle, so this we can handle, that I am sure of.

I was telling my mom about the Hales family and what they are battling and how I can’t even imagine how hard it must be. Then she says to me while looking at Ava “At least Ava only has diabetes”, those words made me feel so thankful to have our daughter home and that soon (hopefully) we will be managing her disease. It is amazing how God can put things so simple like a facebook/blog update in front of us to humble us and be thankful for what we are given. My heart goes out to the Hales and I hope they have some answers this week. Thanks Mom for the positive thought and thank you Hales for the updates as hard as it must be, it is greatly appreciated in so many ways.
