a picture is worth a thousand words...

Ok so she is posing for this (the angle is wrong but only a Dmom would know that ;) ) This was her 10th shot in about 48 hrs that she did all by herself. This photo has so many emotions in it. It makes me laugh and cry all in the same breath. Grief and pride all meshed together. 4 months ago she and I both had a fear of needles. She doesn't even flinch. She is so little and so big at the same time. I hate that D has forced her to grow up so fast but love that she is so mature. The tears are flowing so fast now that I can't see to type so I will leave you with this picture and really I know I don't have to say a word because if you are a D-mom or dad reading this, you "get it".


  1. inspiring.... Gods guna heal this little one! Stay hopeful!<---She's one amazing, young lady!
    Much love to you and your family♥

  2. I am still amazed that she can do this herself. She is one STRONG young lady (its the girls that usually are I guess). I do get it... I get the tears. They are hard enough with us doing them. I could not imagine standing back and watching it, even if it IS a great triumph. Good job Mom. You are giving her the tools so that she is able to manage her own diabetes one day. That is something we all stuggle with handing over.

  3. So sweet and so sad at the same time. Great job Bekah!

  4. I'm proud of both of you.

    God is making Bekah so brave. She's going to take such good care of herself.

    And God's helping you to encourage and build her up.

    You're doing such a good job being a mom.

    (I'm still praying everything goes well with Megan.)

  5. Her face says so much. What an awesome picture! You should be proud...this is huge!!

  6. I my eyes filled with tears. Pride and sadness - what a brave little girl. Beyond her years brave and strong. XOXOX
