Wordless Wednesday ~ The Diabetes Mountain

I recently traveled to Jasper, Alberta, a town perched amongst the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The scenery was breathtaking, and I was struck by what a simple metaphor a mountain can be for diabetes. Diabetes can seem life an insurmountable obstacle; a mountain simply too high, or too steep, to conquer, and yet we traverse it by simply going one step at a time.

More pics of our trip to follow soon!


  1. I can't tell you how much I love the Canadian Rockies. Breathtaking.

  2. beautiful mountains! and i completely love the true

  3. From the novel "Cutting for Stone", "no one trips over a mountain, it is the tiny pebble that causes us to stumble. Pass all the pebbles and you will have crossed the mountain". I read the book a couple years ago, great read. Of course I (like other pwd or parents of CWD) associate many things back to diabetes. To me all the daily things we do to manage diabetes are the pebbles (sometimes more like boulders) diabetes is the mountain. The quote hangs on my office wall to remind me and my dear children that in the end we will cross the mountain and there will be a cure on the other side.
