Oh Sugar. Oh, Honey, Honey..

I love that song and even though  we haven't met, I love this little girl. You don't know her? Sugar?? Well you are missing out on not only a gorgeous face, but a beautiful personality. I haven't  met her per se, but her mom Wendy my friend, blogs about her and her other sisters over here

Wendy's posts are usually so uplifting and make me see the light at the end of  the tunnel.Wendy is a a  huge  support  system, and a staple in the  D.O.C.   But right now Sugar is going through a bit of a rough time. In the D world, its a big deal.  To me its a big  deal.

Justice  went  through it too. Justice was questioned, made fun, even bullied  about his Diabetes at one point. He was taunted, pointed at , and told his pump was surgery and  "ewww". It broke my heart. It took time but   it got handled and he  now has his  own way of explaining things to kids.

I told him all about Wendy's post, and the look on his face was bummed and shocked. So I  asked him  if he  would put something together for her.

Something to uplift her spirits, and let her know she's not alone.

Please forgive me the video is in two parts, my camera died and all I had was my cell.

  This is  from Justice. I hope this makes you smile. 

In case its hard to understand.  He said "  You're  special.  You're not alone. We all love each other. (Meaning all the kids with type 1 are a family,  he said.).

" Dexcom is important for  us, and  its a big  deal. Its painful  going in sometimes and  they don't know  what its like. Tell them  you are  stronger  than  them and  to BACK OFF!!".

And I'm sure  when  we visit Arizona hopefully this summer, Justice will pay any kid you choose a personal visit.

So if ever you need anything...your mom knows where to find us.

Advice from an  8 year old  makes me smile, anytime.
