My Facebook friend, Linda Palmer, wrote the following blog today. I think that all the moms of diabetic children should have the opportunity to read it.
"As Mother’s Day quickly approaches, I thought today would be an excellent opportunity to talk about the lifelong influence a mother has on her children. I read stories every day on facebook from the Diabetic Online Community (DOC) about the sacrifice moms make for their Type 1 Diabetic kids. These are terrific moms who would walk on hot coals if they thought it would help. Each and every one of them would take on their child’s suffering if they could. They would trade places with them in a heart beat! That’s a mother’s love – and there is no substitute for it!
Today is NATIONAL TEACHER’S DAY but I want to recognize the mothers of Type 1 Diabetic children. They are so diligent, and in the process they are sleep deprived and frustrated with the disease, but they have their kid’s backs! They will be there if the world walks away. All moms are great, but the mom of a Type 1 Diabetic is a Super Hero!
God gave you these wonderful children
To love on with all of your heart.
They'll grow to be fine men and women
Because you cared for them at the start."
