So . . . a lot has happened with the Type One Trio in the past few weeks!
First of all, we had an amazing Thanksgiving Break/Vacation! After my first semester in college, the break was well needed and much appreciated. From running to playing indoor soccer to sleeping in, vacation proved itself a great time to recharge. Here are some family pictures we were able to take!
Once we returned from vacation, I took part in MBU's Christmas Concert! Although I was only one of around one hundred singers, one thing made me different from everyone else - my amazing insulin pump! It amazes me to think that it still hasn't reached one year since my diagnosis. Last Christmas season I was preparing for my knee surgery - nervousness and anticipation defined my thinking . . . little did I know what lay ahead! Yet, when I compare where I was then - to where I am now - I'm amazed at the way God has molded me through this disease.
Though some would consider Type One a curse, I think that the reality of accepting that your life is in God's hands is an incredible gift. Every day presents a fresh set of difficulties, but if you know that God is in control, you don't have to worry! It's all about perspective: either I'm overwhelmed with the complications Type One entails, or amazed by the protection God instills!
I'm sure I'll be posting more once I get through this next week . . . it holds what I've been dreading from the start of college. The "make-it or break-it:" Finals!
I've done my fair share of studying, fair share of reading, and fair share of stressing,
But after I memorize all of my terms, definitions, and study guides . . . I'll be ready!

Don't worry, I'm not complaining! This is what I signed up for! :)
