World Diabetes Awareness Day...
Hope you're wearing blue! This is my nephew Benjamin sitting on a stump with my Abe. He has been a type I diabetic since he was 5 years old. We so desperately need a cure! Insulin keeps us alive, but there are so many complication- even in everyday life. As Ben says, "Diabetes can be quite frustrating." I couldn't agree with him more. So take a minute and say a prayer that someone out there figures out a way to cure this terrible disease. Thanks!

He loves his Aunt Nina and so do I!

You should have heard him explaining diabetes to the car salesmen when we were buying our new car. It was quite funny and they were just amazed at him.

I am ALWAYS wearing blue - so I must be very supportive of World Diabetes Day! Did I thank you yet for my envelope of goodies? If not - thanks! Love you!

I pray for you all the time - I know SO many people with diabetes and you are right; it is a terrible disease. BTW, Ben and Abe look like they could be brothers; how cute they are!
I'd post you some pictures of the remodel **but it's not done YET!!**... going to my happy place now...
