WEGO: Health Activists Writer's Month Challenge Day 2

HAWMC DAY #2 Quotation Inspiration: Find a quote that inspires you (either positively or negatively) and free write about it for 15 minutes

My favorite quotation when dealing with most anything is by Robert Lewis Stevenson.

In dealing with Type 1 diabetes on a daily basis this quotation is perfect when you think about it. Almost every day we're faced with less than perfect numbers, so our "harvest" may not be quite what we want at the end of the day. But when you're raising a child with Type 1 diabetes sometimes less than a perfect "harvest" can just tug at your heart strings in concerns of complications, and other factors. But think of it this way, you are trying day in and day out doing everything right, so those "seeds" you are planting are much more important than the numbers on the screen. A few highs here or there are bound to happen, and it isn't your fault. You plant "seeds" daily as well in showing your child/children how to take proper responsibility and manage their diabetes the best they can on a daily basis. 

So don't worry about a less than perfect harvest. Think about the seeds you are planting now to ensure the best harvest of all in the future, (A long healthy life with diabetes).
