Awol

For what its worth, I thought Id let you know Ive made peace with diabetes.

Its a beast, unrelenting and sucks your time, energy, emotion.  

It takes up time and space in my head and Ive expended more, worrying that it was doing so.

Ive been accepting.   Simplifying.  Detoxing.  Creating and being fruitful.  Putting diabetes in its place. 

It is secondary to Reuben.   Hes freaking awesome.

Secondary to our relationships and goals.

I love seeing the bigger picture.   All I had to do was stop magnifying it.   Important yes, priority yes, but not bigger than Reuben himself.
