About Me

I’m a diy, penny pinchin’, first time home owner, wife to my amazing helper of a husband, one sweet little type 1 diabetic daughter and one smart creative little boy(or should I say young man!). There isn’t a thing I won’t buy if I think I can make it myself. So I hope you enjoy my attempt to save a little money and share my attempts to make our house a home.

At Least

My mother spoke a few words this morning that I thought I would never hear her say “At least Ava only has diabetes”. Don’t get me wrong it is a life we didn’t expect or feel like we deserved and I have always believed that god will give us what we can handle, so this we can handle, that I am sure of.

I was telling my mom about the Hales family and what they are battling and how I can’t even imagine how hard it must be. Then she says to me while looking at Ava “At least Ava only has diabetes”, those words made me feel so thankful to have our daughter home and that soon (hopefully) we will be managing her disease. It is amazing how God can put things so simple like a facebook/blog update in front of us to humble us and be thankful for what we are given. My heart goes out to the Hales and I hope they have some answers this week. Thanks Mom for the positive thought and thank you Hales for the updates as hard as it must be, it is greatly appreciated in so many ways.

  1. I love what YOU said when she was first diagnosed-
    "We get to keep her forever and this is just what we have to do..." to keep her healthy, etc.
    She can still have a great life. Just those darn "poke-y's" every day.
