Today is a day set aside by Gina to honor those in the d-blogging community.

I was introduced to The DOC by Vivian while on the CWD chatroom one night. I had started a blog a few days earlier and she encouraged me to join the community.

I had no idea how much of a blessing it was at the time.

Finding those D blogs was the best therapy I could have ever had.

I've sat and cried over some of the heart-wrenching posts you have written. I've jumped for joy over some of the great accomplishments you have shared. And, I've laughed until I cried a few times too.

You guys have helped me through some very difficult times. And I know you'll be there for any difficulties in the future, as well as the joyful times.

Thank you.

You have always "gotten" me. I know when you read a post of mine it is read with care and trust. Thank you for that.
You totally awesome.

Allison said...

You parents amaze me. Much to love to you and the family.

Sara said...

You rock!

Enjoying seeing your photos in the diabetes365 project.

P.S. I think I just got the world's most difficult word verification (zsoxeaxr in crazy skinny cursive).

Penny, it just seems like we have been blog sisters forever. Thank you for being so wonderful.

I'm a bit late, but thank you Penny! For sharing with us and being able to care for your son in such an amazing and loving way. Happy Belated D-Blog Day!

Penny, I'm so very glad you joined this community-- reading of your family's journey, and of Riley's strength and perseverance through all of it, has been an inspiration.

Happy Belated D-Blog Day!

Penny, you have certainly put into words just how I feel. The DOC is the place I go when the anxiety is too much to take. I appreciate everyone who pours out their feelings, advice, and love. I didn't know it was D-Blog day, but I was there in spirit!

Penny - I'm so glad you started your blog.

As Allison says, you parents are amazing. I've learned a lot from reading what you so graciously share with us all.

Thank you!
