Today is a very sad day. They brought my uncle to hospice and the end is near. He was such a viberant man and we all knew this was coming but when it actually does come, it still seems to be a surprise. He lived a good, full life and is 85 but he did have diabetes and suffered with it the last few years.
He was lucky that he never lost any limbs, although he did lose a lot of eyesight and in the end he was on dialysis. Diabetes is such a hard disease. Think about what you love the most and this disease takes it away from you. Change your lifestyle to accomadate the disease and it takes a different turn and hits you somewhere else. Then I think that whatever you do, when your number is up, it's not going to matter. On the other hand, when it's not your time, regardless of what you do, you will still be here. It's all in the Lord's hands.
So today, I sit and pray and just wait for the word to come.
