The Princess and The Prosthetic

You Can’t Beat a Person Who Never Gives Up

This week, a substitute in Callie’s PE class looked at Callie’s prosthetic leg and told her she can’t be runner for the game they were playing.
.
I’ve been told my whole life things I can’t do. 
I can’t play sports because of my diabetes.
I can’t have kids because of my diabetes. 
I can’t get married because who would marry someone with a chronic illness?
I can’t travel because it’s too dangerous with my diabetes. 
I can’t be a leader and have a career because of my disease. 
I can’t write because I need a job with insurance to pay for my medication. 
I can’t run a marathon.
I can’t drive because of lows. 
Those people didnt know by telling me “You can’t” it would light a spark in me. Tell me I can’t do something and I’ll turn around and do it. And not only will I do it, but I’ll do it well. .
.
Tell my daughter she can’t do something? You just lit a bonfire in me. She will never know things she “can’t” do–only what she can. There’s no limit, obstacle, or barrier we won’t over come. 
And those things they said I couldn’t do??   Look at me now…..

Hi Y'all! I’m Jaime, a proud working mama, author, girl boss and wifey to an ultra-adorable husband. I am a huge book nerd, I drink coffee like my life depends on it, and run on dry shampoo and Amazon Prime. Leopard print is my favorite color. I am a story teller at heart and this blog is a virtual scrapbook of our crazy beautiful life. I'm a Type One Diabetic and our little warrior princess Callie is a lower limb amputee. By sharing how we’ve chosen to flourish in the garden we’ve been planted in, we hope you can take some small nuggets of hope, inspiration, and laughter. We are so grateful that you’ve found us—welcome to the fam. We embrace our perfectly imperfect lives and don’t let the doctor’s appointments, spreadsheets, speaking engagements, 10th birthday parties to plan, housework or date nights overwhelm us. Those things are just the beautiful reminders of all the blessings in our lives. Read More
