keep reading

It amazes me that even when I don't get a chance to write on my blog, people still read!  Thank you for staying interested in our lives and my heart continues to go out to all of you googling type 1 diabetes because you know someone recently diagnosed.  Keep educating people on what life is really like with type 1 diabetes.  It doesn't go away, its not contagious, and its not caused by eating too much sugar!

I am considering going back to work after four years off.  I don't know how logistically this will work but I will keep you posted.   The position that I am considering is a special education teacher working with children that have been abused or are special education or both.  My heart also goes out to them.  When I was teaching before, I founded a bowling program that gave my at risk students a chance to earn trips out of their neighborhood and into the other side of town.  We drove them on a school bus and bought them nachos and let them bowl.  We partnered with another school and educated each group about each others neighborhoods that normally would be enemies. 

This potential job calls for an empathetic, creative teacher that can instill hope in these kids lives.  That's me.  I live it, have taught them, and have provided a safe home for neighbors kids and relatives.  It's who I am.  But am I ready?

When I was reading about the facility that is hiring, they also have a medical director, that works with the school.  She just happens to be a diabetes specialist!  I'm excited to meet her and refer her to our blog!

Anyways, who knows what will happen, but I am considering.  There is too much time too waste just sitting here typing...I love writing and will continue, but we must put hands and feet to our words.
