i recently wrote about something that has affected our family,
a disease, with no cure. my grandson travis has Type 1 Diabetes.
i never imagined the response we received when i wrote about travis's fight, so many
who have T1D, their fight. the wishes, prayers, donations, every single one, i carried with me
today at the Walk for the Cure.
travis and his grammy, me!
so many came for the walk, here is the youngest member of our group
we wore tshirts, carried signs, wore beads...these were handed out, each color significant:
parent : gold
grandparent : red
sibling : orange
(there was also purple for spouse, green for relative, silver for friend, and blue for living with t1d)
(again, only cell phone photos) but can you see the writing on my shirt?
your names, see? you walked with me. if you didn't give me your name you were added
as a friend and as anonymous (as requested)
travis's mom, my girl
walkers of all ages
sadie bella, she's wearing her orange sibling beads
after the walk, time to eat, and play!
these walkers made their tshirts. the love and support today was as abundant as the sunshine.
climbing with his three friends!
he had a good day xxxxxxxxxxxx
we thank you from the bottom of our hearts
hiding in the folds of the blouse i wore today, are the names of two little girls who donated
their savings, five dollars and five dollars and thirty one cents, towards finding a cure. my eyes fill with tears over this. maddy and abby, i'm sorry your names didn't show in the photo sweethearts, but they are there, on the blouse, on the top left, over my heart.
one linen blouse gave up it's life for the cause, it was worth it, yes indeed.
thank you again so much dear friends.
