Thankless, endless, and exhausting
Thankless, endless, overwhelming, and exhausting. When you hear these words, what comes to mind? Anyone think: Being the parent of a Type 1 Diabetic? If so, you are not alone. You are being genuine and real. I think so many parents are afraid to be honest, afraid that if they go down that road, it signals that they are horrible and unworthy-- somehow broken, unloving and undeserving. Believe me, you are none of those things. You are tired. Everyone knows that amidst those moments of frustration, you celebrate amazingly tender, loving, joyful and rewarding moments. Wrap it all up and that's parenthood. Don't let those dark moments define you. Smile and know that around the corner there will be joy and that joy is unmatched. You are living the dream!
