The kids and I worked hard tonight on getting some of our postcards ready for the
"World Diabetes Postcard Exchange" this year.
November is National Diabetes Awareness Month. World Diabetes Day is celebrated on November 14th. This day is also the birthday of Frederick Banting (who along with Charles Best) first conceived the idea that led to the discovery of
insulin in 1922.
I am happy to share my birthday (also November 14th) with this AMAZING man! Thank you, Lee Ann Thill (Creator of the World Diabetes Postcard Exchange) for all of the hard work, time and effort you put into making this event such a HUGE success.
It is such an awesome way to unite people across the world to let them know they are not alone, but one of many.
What type are you? Type 1? Type 2?
Type Mom? Type Dad?
It doesn't matter....we all feel it!

It is not too late!
The blue circle that you see on each of these postcards is the National Symbol for World Diabetes Day!
Here is the description you will find on the International Diabetes Federation website:
"The significance of the blue circle symbol is overwhelmingly positive. Across cultures the circle symbolizes life and health. The color blue reflects the sky that unites all nations and is the color of the United Nations flag. The blue circle signifies the unity of the global diabetes community in response to the diabetic pandemic."
Please join us in lighting your front porch
We continue to HOPE!
