Diabetes Awareness Day

Diabetes Awareness Day!!
November 14, 2010

Here are my boys!
Brenden was diagnosed November 1, 2010 at 8 yrs. old
Christopher was diagnosed December 17, 2005 at 9 yrs. old

The whole family wearing our AWESOME t-shirts that my cousin's company made for our family to wear today!

We all wore our t-shirts to church (we tried to dress them up a little)! I had no idea what was waiting for us in the chapel. We walked in to a chapel full of people wearing stickers with this logo on them (about the size of my palm)!

More than just a sticker...!

I don't think I have ever been so touched by something in my life. Today was also the primary program at church. The spirit was so strong during this meeting! I had to lead the closing hymn...the congregation sang the first 3 verses and the primary kids sang the last verse. We sang I Know That My Redeemer Lives! Between the words of that song and looking out at the congregation wearing these stickers for my boys, I could not hold back the tears! Just like the words to one of the songs the primary kids sang today...
I Know That My Savior Loves Me!
Our ward family have truly been angels here on earth for us!
Today has been a WONDERFUL day!
