Thankful heart.

“The friendships that come from type 1 diabetes are one of the things I’m most grateful for.” 
I couldn’t agree  more with my friend Peggy’s words. @mommalongkepp and I have shared years of laughter and tears, frustrations and fears as we raised our sons through childhood and adolescence living with T1D. 
Listen in as I interview her about the power of friendship and gratitude to help us accept situations we can’t control. Link to all the interviews I’ve done for National Diabetes Awareness Month in bio.

Unexpected Changes 

Three days ago my Japanese Maple was a blaze of fire. Then the wind howled and the rains fell for three days straight. When the storm finally passed only a handful of these beautiful crimson leaves were left holding onto the tree. 
Most storms of life are unexpected and leave us facing debris where once there stood beauty. How do you handle the worst unexpected storms of life?
Listen in to my interview series for Chronic Hope for stories from real parents who have pushed past an unexpected diagnosis to places of deeper hope.

“Ultimately, we have just one moral duty: to reclaim large areas of peace in ourselves, more and more peace, and then to reflect it toward others. And the more peace there is in us, the more peace there will also be in our troubled world.”

I need these words today, penned by a young Jewish woman named Etty Hillesum,  who endured great suffering before dying at Auschwitz in November of 1943. Her example of discovering interior freedom by living at peace despite her circumstances gives me HOPE that even in the uncertainty of our times we can all still choose peace.

Join me in reclaiming large areas of personal peace today?

I went for a walk and stepped into a Monet painting today, only the hay stack had changed its shape. 
My world has felt small after months staying mostly at home. It did my soul good to imagine, even if only for a minute, that I was in another place and time.

Where do you wish you could venture today were it not for the limitations of covid?
