OLW - Gratitude

Just under the wire! I tried alot of new things on this page. I used my own handwritting for the title, crushed beads as well and glued them on the title, used some of my many brads and some hemp, also printed up some hybrid leaves and cut them out, more stiching, some handmade flowers, distressing and I got to use some of my evalicious goodies that I won with my Sweet as Pie album from OLW!

This is my first page about my son's recent diagnosis of type 1 diabetes. It's been a rough month and we are still learning. The journaling reads:

Even in these dark times of your recent diabetes diagnosis, I am grateful. I am grateful you are young and won't remember a life without diabetes. I am grateful that you have an amazing daycare provider (Jenni) who loves you and has been so involved with meal planning and taking care of you. I am grateful that you will grow up with Teagan, who also has type 1 diabetes and that you will be there for each other as you grow up. I am grateful for the diabetic clinic and all they support they have given. I am grateful for all the people who love you and who will be there for you. But most of all I am grateful for you. You have been such a strong little man and I am so proud of you!

Thanks for looking!
