A True Gem

Please allow me to gush for a moment.

I just received an email message that I think is blogworthy, and this message has left me with a mixture of emotions: joy, gratitude, comfort, relief.

The message came from Jack's Sunday school teacher. I'll call her M.

M wrote:
"Hi there. . .Okay, could be a stupid and irrelevant question, but we are going to be outside on Sunday. It's definitely hotter than normal. Just wanted to know if I should be more on my toes with respect to Jack? Thanks."
Could M be any more caring, considerate and proactive? No, she's incredible! She's a true gem!

Some people just don't "get it" when it comes to our kids with diabetes. Others do. M definitely does.

I know you D'rents out there understand why this email made me so happy. Having a teacher like M makes such a difference in our lives, and Gregg and I both feel immensely appreciative. We are lucky. We are blessed.

M, if you're reading this, thank you from the bottom of my heart!

M, thank you for looking out for Jack and giving his family a sense of security that many of us parents NEVER feel when our children are in the care of someone else. Great Job!!

People like M are a true blessing! You are right...there are those that just don't get it, and then you find a gem like M who takes the time to get it.

Those little gestures can mean the world to a D'rent!!!

Love your family!!! And you know that I truly don't think I do anything special - just what comes naturally. . .I really think most teachers/counselors/caregivers would do the same. ..and if they don't, then I will be so bold as to say they are in the wrong field. .just sayin'. . .:-) YOU are the rockstar mom who is out there educating and doing what you need to for Jack. .. xxoo. . .
