Neither of my parents had diabetes or anyone that we knew but still they ended up with 3 little Type 1's. I honestly don't know how(mainly Mom) managed to keep us going plus herself and my non-diabetic sister way back in the 50's and 60's. I appreciate her so much and my Dad cuz he worked hard.
We went to celebrate Mother's Day with her in the country, took her to her favourite restaurant, bought her groceries, went to the Mother's Day mass with her, surprised her with gifts and washed her car. She enjoyed the pampering. :)
I am a Type 1 for 51 years and I have 2 dear children who look after me and their Dad if we need help. We do appreciate them.
Wishing all Mom's of all kinds a belated Happy Mother's Day.
