THE STORY OF ONE FAMILY'S JOURNEY WITH TYPE 1 DIABETES AND CELIAC DISEASE.

It was a JOYOUS morning.

Christmas morning, 2010, that is.

After attending an awesome church service on Christmas Eve, we arrived home to find a genuine Christmas surprise that actually stopped us in our tracks.  It literally took our breath away.  Completely unexpected, it seemed to come from Heaven itself.  Our surprise was so incredible that I've been struggling with how to put it into words, for fear that my simple description could never describe the overwhelming joy it brought to our hearts.  Candy Hearts is the place where our life journey is written...please stay tuned, because I need some time to figure out how to reach beyond the obvious and unwrap the true gift we found inside.

I had to work until almost 1 am on the 24th, but that didn't hamper my excitement and anticipation for the JOY that Christmas morning would bring...

JOY 
is the only word I can find to describe our beautiful morning...







Here's a little something that will bring JOY to your heart.
It's less than a minute long.
And JOY is promised...


Special thanks to Mrs. Harer for our awesome DOC Secret Santa gift!


And I'd be remiss if I didn't give a shout out to
all my T1 Facebook pals who sent such an amazing array of cards.
We genuinely enjoyed opening each one and sharing your stories.
PS -- This card exchange was organized by the
T1 Hangout on Facebook.


I'll be back with more joy to share.
God bless,

  8. ::sorry for the deleted comment. Too many typos!!!::

    Wendy; a cliffhanger? Really? Hehe. I know the feeling when you have a story to tell but it just won't hold it's meaning if some background isn't given first. And, as D-Mom's, we all know how out computer and writing time is limited!!!!

    I just love what you do with your photos. I also know the extra effort it takes to do that and can see it is time well spent as I am certain it brings you joy ..... it certainly does for me!!!!

    Merry Christmas, my friend. Can't wait to hear "The rest of the story ......"
