School has started (barely!), and with it the craziness that is Fall when you have school aged kids. Feeling a little overwhelmed, I had talked myself out of doing the WALK TO CURE DIABETES this year. It is always right around Lucca's birthday (party to plan), Halloween (costumes and trick-or-treating to think about), along with all of the kids' after school activities (I get to be the chauffeur), and my commitment to the Silent Auction at Maya's school (do I really want to ask MORE people to give MORE money?!?!?!).
And then, about 20 minutes ago I decide to go onto Facebook after a longer than usual absence while my kids were downstairs with their music teacher. The first thing I see is a post from another mother of a type 1 daughter,
"A child of only 7 years passed in the night due to a severe low blood sugar. He was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when he was 2. As a parent of children with Type 1 diabetes this is my worst fear. I do not know the family - yet I am connected to them and so many other families with children or loved ones with diabetes. Please pray for the family and pray for a cure for diabetes."
Well, so much for not doing The Walk this year. I'll just sleep a little less, and start obsessing about making a Walk video, making Walk Team t-shirts, and making my fund raising goal. Because what it all boils down to is that none of that other stuff even comes close to being as important as FINDING A CURE FOR MY DAUGHTER'S DISEASE. I cure is SO close I can taste it. I KNOW that it will happen in Maya's lifetime. I just want it SOONER rather than LATER. Please. Be a part of finding the cure for Type 1 Diabetes.
