Bump......Re-Post

It has been three years since he was diagnosed with Type one diabetes. I would give anyting to take it from him..........      
                                                                                                                            
When you try your best, but you don't succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse
And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone, but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?
Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you
And high up above or down below
When you're too in love to let it go
But if you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth
                                                                  Lights will guide you home 
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you
Tears stream down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down your face
And I...
Tears stream down your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down your face
And I...
Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you.

Thankful for it all

As a nurse, I am in the presence of death more than most. It makes me think about the life that was lived. The smiles and laughter, the tears and pain. What would they go back and do different, do they have regrets?

In this life we fall, we rise, and with each mistake, we learn. We are humans that hold a precious privilege just to breathe, to follow our dreams, to chase what we love, to think. The sadness, the joy, it is all so beautiful. How easy it is to miss the beauty in the rush of life.
This Thanksgiving I am so thankful for the journey, the tears, even the pain, and the joy.
