Painting therapy of the day
I think he may have ruined the train but it was worth it.
As we come to the end of diabetes awareness month, I want to once again refer to legend Leonard Cohan. As you remember he said, "There is a crack in everything. That's how the light gets in." Not to create-but illume a hidden part of us whose beauty might otherwise have passed unnoticed. We all have our cracks. Let us use those cracks and imperfections to let the light in and shine through us. We already have it within us. Iknow in my heart that the cracks within Ocean will help him become the beautiful person is meant to be. We can already see the light in his joy and laughter. As you can see our hunt for a Christmas tree with Grandpopz was filled with wonder and light. Not everything is easy - actually nothing is. I felt overwhelmed with the thought of leaving our hobbit hole and going out for a tree, and there were a couple cracks in the adventure but as you can see from the photos and video it was worth it.
Oh so worth it!
Is it Friday? Let's do a flash back Friday...
I took this awesome video pre-diagnosis - although looking back we see the signs of the pancreas starting to fail. This video is from November 1, 2015. The night before was Halloween of course. I had spent countless hours working on wings for all three of us out of cardboard and cardstock paper to make us making angels. And since the wings were made out of cardboard what was bound to happen? Rain. Pouring, endless rain that would ruin my gorgeous wings. So we went to the mall that night, which was crummy and boring.
But the next day brought a glorious sunny afternoon! So we went to our favorite park in town, donned our wings and played in puddles. It was glorious!
