I've been keeping track of how many people click on my blog for a little over two years now. Today I reached the milestone of 100,000 visitors.

To quote a post from earlier this year:

I like to think of my blog as my ark.

I was drowning, so one day I took my thoughts and built my ark/blog.

I filled the ark with my fears, my hopes, my belly laughs and musings from my swelly brain and let it sail!

It traveled father than I ever imagined, and has taken me to places I never knew existed.

The best place of all is the Diabetes Online Community. When I started this blog, I didn't even know the DOC existed. It was a happy coincidence my sister in law found another parent blogger and pointed me in her direction. Discovering Shamae's blog list was akin to finding the new world for me. I had found solid ground. I wasn't alone in the ark with my thoughts, like Noah's dove, I was able to set them free...and in turn, I could set myself free as well.

I want to take a minute to thank each and every one of you for taking the time to click on my link and see what I have to say. You have been my biggest support. Your being here means the world to me and has made all the difference in Our Diabetic Life. There is such power in knowing we are not alone, I had no idea of this when I started this journey. It is a comfort to me knowing that there are others like me out there saying, "same."

YOU make a difference in my life. Thank you. Thank you SO MUCH for that.

(This is day 20 of National Health Blogging Month where I am posting every single darn day for Diabetes Awareness Month. 10 days to go. Thank you for taking the ride with me!)


  1. Thank you for writing! Although our circumstances may be different in some ways, it really is comforting to know that there is someone out there the "same" in many of the others. It's nice knowing I'm not the only one living with a swelly brain :)

  2. It is the readers of the blog who should thank you. Thank you for being brave enough to share your story with the world. Reassuring and comforting the many parents who go through the same things you do, but can't write in public. Thank you for giving the silent majority a voice. Thank you for so publicly advocating our cause.

  3. I love being able to join your ark :)

  4. I'm with the others...thanks to YOU for writing your blog! We're all so very blessed to have you share your thoughts with us!

  5. Thank you for writing and sharing your heart and helping so many others, including myself, feel not so alone.

  6. Thank YOU. The DOC is my comfort and you and your boys are my favorite.

  7. thank YOU meri. but where's the confetti explosion from the 100,000th visit? ;)
