So this is a much overdue post, I guess you could say I took a long vacation from blogging...I needed to recharge my batteries and start gearing up for the school year. I spent a lot of time with my kids, hanging out, playing, coloring and just soaking up their joy and love! Miss E has started kindergarten and I felt like I was counting down the days until she left me...I was a wreck!!!

We also had lots of family visiting us and we even took a road trip, there were JDRF functions and many play dates and sleepovers!

Summer was fun and full of action...

But something was missing...what was missing you may ask??? Well YOU of course!!! I have spent the last couple of hours catching up on some of my fellow D-peeps blogs and I just realized how much I have missed you all!!! So this is my quick shout out to all my fellow D-bloggers out there, reading your posts has reminded me of how lucky I am to have such an amazing group of friends out there who are living this life with D right along with me and can understand the struggles that we inspire, amaze, and delight make me laugh, you make me cry and you remind me that I am not alone in this.

Thank you for sharing your stories and inspiring me...I want to share with you this quote...

You have within you
and the PASSION
to reach for the stars
and change the WORLD!
-Harriet Tubman
I believe that every time we share a story, a moment, a fear or a triumph...we can change someones life and have an impact. Even if you don't think you are making a difference, you are...

    I've missed you and I'm looking forward to hear how school is going!

  2. LOVE YOU! and THANK YOU! I have been wondering where you have been. I took a break in May thru like July and totally get it. I am sure I will be taking a back seat once my month of blogging daily challenge is over...UGH. Don't worry though, I'll be reading!

  4. Welcome back! We all need to take advantage of summer vacation sometimes. We will be here when you get back :), but the sweeties at home will only color with you for so long.

  5. Glad to "see" you again! Love the quote!!!

  6. Yay, welcome back. It's good to take a break sometimes and to just be in the moment, or collection of moments! Glad your summer was good.
