** 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}} **

THANKFUL THURSDAY:
THANKSGIVING EDITION

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! I wanted to take a few minutes to list some things I am thankful for since today is, of course, Thanksgiving. I could list a gazillion things but for the sake of time I will keep it short!

This Thanksgiving Day I am thankful for:

  • Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. I continue to be in awe at just how much He blesses my family and me every single day!
  • Being home with my family for Thanksgiving instead of in the hospital again!
  • My amazing, self-LESS husband who ALWAYS puts me and my needs before his. I've done things over our 19 year marriage that could have caused him to walk away. However, he not only stayed, he continues to treat me like a queen every day.
  • My 3 beautiful daughters and 2 adorable grandsons. They are each a blessing from the Lord.
  • My mom and dad who have stood by me through thick and thin and are there at a moment's notice when I need them.
  • A warm, beautiful home that my husband and I feel so blessed to be able to call our own.
  • This year, my husband and I paid off ALL of our debt with the exception of our mortgages on our home and rental property. (I♥ Dave Ramsey!)
  • We are almost completely finished with our Christmas shopping and we paid cash for every last penny!

Please join Alyssa at TRUTH 4 THE JOURNEY to see what she and others are thankful for this Thanksgiving.
