** Due to the increasing severity of MY ILLNESS, it has become impossible for me to continue to post on a regular basis. Unfortunately, as much as I desperately long to, I am also unable to visit each of your blogs often or reciprocate all the loving, supportive comments many of you continue to leave - even though at times it may appear as though you've arrived at some long ago, forsaken blog! With that said, I really want you to know that I miss every single one of you and that I really am still here! I'm just too sick and too weak most days to be able to sit up long enough to create a brand new post...or even read one. However, I absolutely do receive AND read every new encouraging word you leave (and, often, the old ones, again and again!) and I cherish them now more than ever! I truly appreciate your love, support, and, most importantly, your precious time spent on your knees in prayer for my family and me. It ALL means the world to me and I am truly blessed to have friends like you!
~Hugs and Sister Love, Teresa

FYI: All comments come to my email, which I can easily read on my phone. I also enjoy Facebook on my phone because I can catch up on A LOT in a very short time there. Soooo, if you're on Facebook, come 'friend' me there! {{HUGS}} **

I Would Like To Thank The Academy....

Over the long Labor Day weekend, I was honored with not one but three awesome blog awards! Considering how incredibly poor I've been feeling and how bad this last week has been, it was really nice to receive so much bloggy love!

The first two awards were given to me by my friend at The Redhead Riter. She is such an awesome and sweet lady and I really enjoy her blog.

The first award is the 'YOU ADD SUNSHINE TO MY DAY' award. I am giving it to ALL THE BLOGGERS BELOW who have been tagged and selected to receive the next two awards because they ALL add sunshine to my day. Please grab it and pass it along to those bloggers who add sunshine to your day!

The next award, also from The Redhead Riter, is 'The Superior Scribbler Award'.

Download Here

The Rules for this one are:

* Each Superior Scribbler I name today must in turn pass The Award on to 5 most-deserving Bloggy Friends.
* Each Superior Scribbler must link to the author & the name of the blog from whom he/she has received The Award.
* Each Superior Scribbler must display The Award on his/her blog, and link to
This Post, which explains The Award.
*Each Blogger who wins The Superior Scribbler Award must visit This Post and add his/her name to the Mr. Linky List. That way, we'll be able to keep up-to-date on everyone who receives This Prestigious Honor!
*Each Superior Scribbler must post these rules on his/her blog.

I'm passing this award along to the following Superior Scribblers:
  1. Crown of Beauty
  2. Blue Cotton Memory
  3. In The Mommy Trenches
  4. He Gave Me A Dream
  5. My Voice, My View

The third one I received was from my friend Joan at NOTES FROM OKLAHOMA and TEACHING ISN'T FOR WIMPS. She gave me 'THE SPLASH AWARD'!

The Splash Award is given to alluring, amusing, bewitching, impressive and inspiring blogs.

The Rules are:

* Put the logo on your blog/post.

* Nominate and link up to 9 blogs which allure, amuse, bewitch, impress or inspire you.
* Let them know that they have been splashed by commenting on their blog.
*Remember to link the person from whom you received your Splash Award.

The Splashy Blogs I am passing this one on to are:

  1. Marlie and Me
  2. Ramblings of a Housewife & Mommy
  3. Energizer Bunny Mommy Reports
  4. I Choose Bliss
  5. I Am Heading Towards My Destiny
  6. One Day At A Time
  7. I'll Cross That Leg When I Get To It
  8. Wrestling With Retirement
  9. Lemonade Makin' Mama
  10. Chronic Healing

There are SOOO many blogs I love and enjoy. It was truly hard to pick. While I LOVE to get these awards, I spent way more time on this than I needed to or felt like. I'm not sure I will do this again in the future. I may just do as Joan suggested and accepted them with much thanks but that is it. I just do not have enough energy to do otherwise most days. I am still working on my Dysautonomia Series. I just had no idea it would take so long to write about my life with this illness. I should have realized but I didn't. I hope to start posting it really soon. Thanks to everyone for your patience. I hope you all are having a great week. Many Blessings.
