The conversation as she came home from school yesterday...
Kacey: "Mom, I'm glad I have diabetes."
Me: **choke** "Why are you glad?"
Kacey: "Because it gives me a chance to meet new people."
Me: "You could still meet new people even if you didn't have diabetes."
Kacey: "No, it wouldn't be the same."
Me: "Why wouldn't it?"
Kacey: "Because I wouldn't have a chance to educate people and tell the TRUTH about diabetes."
Kacey: "Plus, I wouldn't have so many friends that I've never met."
Me: "Yep! You're right! So how have you been educating?"
Kacey: "Yesterday was my book review and when I stood up to tell everyone about it, someone asked about my painted fingernails and I told them about it being Diabetes Awareness Month and they thought it was really cool!"
Me: "Wow! Thats neat! So what did you say to educate them?"
Kacey: "I told them that having diabetes sucks!"
LOL! LOL! LOL! Enough said! :)
