Yes, I know.....

 Yes, I know I am on break, still am...however,this is a worthy cause and worthy of me posting about.
Last night my husband and I went to a special GALA fundraiser event, and I wanted to not only post pictures, I also wanted to talk briefly about the cause.  The fundraiser was for Juvenile Diabetes.  One of my son's best friends had been diagnosed with Type I diabetes when he was just 3 years old.  He is now 13, and I can say I have learned a lot about this disease, and the effects it has on children and families.  My heart goes out to these families affected by this disease. Please read more here:
JDRF
I was very happy to be part of this event, sponsored by Lance crackers. This event raised over a half a million dollars just last night. Amazing people to make this fundraiser and event successful.  I just want to share just a smidgen with you all.
Do you know any children affected with TYPE I Juvenile Diabetes? All I can say is these kids are troopers.  Alex's friend has to check his blood sugar 8-10 times a day, and that means pricking his finger.  His insulin is delivered by a pump that is attached to him.  He is one of the happiest kids I know, and never let's his disease get him down. His Parents are amazing people, and they too have a very positive outlook. I am hoping this post may raise awareness.
I hope all is well with you and your lovely families.  Blessings and thoughts to all. Debbie XXX000

 We are all truly the faces of Hope
 The turn out was amazing around 500 people

That is a great cause, Debbie. Isn't it fun to dress up for a charity fund raiser dinner. We used to go to several a year. I am actually glad that I don't have to buy so many fancy outfits anymore. Y'all looked very nice.

A friend of mine was diagnosed with that when we were about 11 or 12. She's had to go through a lot over the years, but she is doing OK.

Terrific Debbie!!! I do have friends with a little girl with Type 1, she is much like your son's friend. So happy and positive.

Hi Debbie, How wonderful that you and your husband where able to go to a Gala for such a wonderful cause. I think the children affected are braver than some adults that I know. I too, was so happy to see a post and a picture of your "smiling" face. Missed you! Glad you are doing great!

Hey lady!!! I cannot tell you how excited I was to see your post pop up on my sidebar! You looked so gorgeous with your hubby and I'm so glad you posted about this cause. I have a dear friend who has battled Type 1 diabetes since she was a young girl and it has ravaged her body and as a result she was unable to get pregnant. But, she and her hubby just adopted a darling little boy and she is doing really well! Thank you for sharing something so near and dear to you with all of us.
Hope to hear from you again soon my friend, but also hope you are finding the rest and balance you are seeking right now!
Blessings,
Vanessa

You look mahvelous, Debbie ... very glamorous! Glad the fundraiser was so successful. My son was diagnosed with Type I diabetes weeks after his 2-year checkup (at which time he'd been pronounced in perfect health). He had a great pediatrician who would say, "Don't refer to him as a diabetic; say he's a healthy child with diabetes."

The disease definitely creates challenges. I always said it could have been something far worse, but a cure would truly make a HUGE difference in countless lives around the world (and reduce healthcare costs tremendously).

Yes, a great cause. You look beautiful and good for you to bring light to a disease that can be so difficult for children to live with.
