Aiming for grace is the name of this blog, because that's what I'm trying to do with my diabetes. Be graceful about it. Deal with it as gracefully as I possibly can. Because it is here, in my life, for the duration, barring a breakthrough or a miracle. I try to be graceful about that fact. Or the fact that sometimes people close to me don't understand how it affects my spirit or reserves or emotions. Or the fact that billions of dollars are being spent on a war I've never agreed with, instead of research to cure this disease. Or the fact that sometimes, because of my diabetes, it's fluctuations, it's demands, I feel very tired. Tired to my soul. It's at these times that I really have to try to keep my eye on the idea of grace. It's at times like these that I aim for grace.
