Happy Birthday Deanna

Dear Deanna

As we celebrate your 42nd birthday, I am still madly in love with you. Even in the midst of some challenging health issues over the past few months, you have proved to everyone, and most importantly, yourself, that you have the tenacity, the wisdom and the perseverance to make the latest changes in your circumstances work. You are adaptable and flexible and combined with the gift of your humor, we all know that you will eventually thrive. One day, we will look back on diabetes as an experience for our growth and a step in the redemption of bigger things.

I'm grateful to journey through life with someone who is so resilient in arduous times. Our kids will look back on this one day to realize that you were committed to their best no matter the circumstances around us. In good and not so good health, you are still an example of a life that was meant to be lived, not merely endured.

We've still got a big future. Forever. Love.
