“She is MY ROCK”
by Sabrina Garza, November 19, 2011
My mother was born in 1937. Mom was diagnosised with Type I Diabetes when she was 3, almost 4 yrs old in 1941. She just turned 74 yrs of age on Oct. 29th, 2011. She has lived with Type 1 Diabetes for going on 71 years. She has always worked very hard and has always taken such wonderful care of herself.
My Mom has never let her diabetes get in the way of living her life to the fullest. She is such a giving person and has devoted her life to always helping others. She has been involved in so many different things in her lifetime….she raised my brother and myself, plus took on 14 different foster children back in the 60’s and 70’s.She has been involved with the Juvenile Diabetes Association,and even created a Diabetic Cookbook. She has made Cancer hats for the American Cancer Society, and Stillborn Baby Blankets for an Organization called Birthright, she is also a talented Seamstress, Crocheter, Knitter, Quilter, her newest love is making beautiful jewelry. She, like you has a wonderful singing voice. She recorded a Record when she was just 8 yrs old. She has sang and performed with many small town Country/Gospel groups throughout her retired life. I know this has turned into a book, but I am just SO PROUD of My Wonderful Mother and wanted to share her with you! Thanks
