Day 170

strangers....who become friends..

I was thinking about this today..

People who reach out via facebook..

Or who comment on this blog..

Or who donate to our Ride...even though we do not know eachother.

Its crazy...but so great.

It is such a support system to know that other people support you and can realte to the things you are going throught..

Either they have been through it..or they have watched their kids go through it, or they just want to help.  They can offer words of encouragement and can realte to your late night lows, or early morning highs, or the sadness of type 1, or the happiness of tackling the disease and doing something great!

Scott Johnson, who comments on this blog and is always so positive and supportive in his comments.
Thank you!!

A Police squad who pooled together and donated over $200 to Craigs Tour de Cure ride..
Thank  you!

Nic Duck, havent heard from you in  awhile, but I love your comments..and how you can relate to Craig baseball games and  to a kiddo with type 1! lol
Thank you!!

Thank you to many other "strangers" who reach out on facebook and who have supported our kids in any way.  We are truly thankful for you, even if we dont "know" you in person!!

Thank You!!


  1. I am! Love this post! I can relate to the connection we share online with people we haven't even met in real life. I hope one day to meet all the D-Mommas I have met through my blog and facebook that have been such an ecouragement and help through this journey with type 1. And...I'm so ready for baseball season!

  2. Wow! What a surprise to see this! You are way too kind.

    I'm so glad to have your voice in the choir, Teri. You, your family, and your stories add a lot of value to this collective. :-)
