Three Years and Counting...

Today is the third anniversary of my daughter's diagnosis of type one diabetes.

I was at work when she called me to say that Daddy had checked her blood sugar; I could tell she had been crying. A wave of fear spread from the top of my head to the tips of my toes as I asked her, "What was it, baby?"

She was three, soon to be four and I knew in that moment that our lives were changed forever.

Sigh.

I know. Each year that goes by is painful.

Oh, that gave me chills.

It seems that each year that passes would get easier. But, it doesn't.
