** 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 love this picture. It is an old picture of my three daughters and my sister's three sons. At the time it was taken (2001), my brother and his wife had not yet had their son. It is SO crazy how quickly things change!

Whitney (now 23), in the middle of the picture, is now married and has 2 sons of her own. Casey (19), the oldest boy at the top of the picture, started college last fall and plans to finish as a Pharmacist. Morgan (18), the one with the glasses, will graduate high school in just a couple of weeks and will be attending Auburn University next fall to study Music Education. Andrew (17), the one on the far left, will be a senior next year. He is still trying to decide what he wants to do, but whatever it is, he will do an awesome job because he is extremely smart. Rebekah (15), the silly one on the right, will be a junior next year and is already thinking about college. She doesn't know exactly what she wants to do yet either, but it will most like have something to do with music. Hunter (13) is on the bottom. He is a true ladies' man and he is loving every minute of it! :0) Hunter will be in 8th grade next year and he is also a brilliant young man. He is looking forward to starting high school so he can be in marching band like Morgan and Bekah. The one you can't see in this picture is my youngest nephew, Landon. He was born about 5 years after this picture was made. He will be 4 this year. He is already following in the footsteps of his cousins. He is extremely cute and smart. That's just how we make 'em! :0)

It really is amazing how quickly time goes by, isn't it. I had a party for my students at my house tonight. Two older siblings (of my current students) who are now in high school came to help. Your post made me think of how I looked at those girls as they helped my little charges and remembered when they were that age.

That is such a sweet picture of the cousins. It would be neat to see another of them at the age they are now.

Blessings dear lady

I love the photo above. It's true, how time passes and families grow or change. Sweet pic.

I love big family photos of kids! It's fun to look back and remember when they were younger and to praise God that everyone turned out so great!

Aren't there days when you just miss those little people? It's so wonderful when they grow up and fly, but there are days I just miss the little person they used to be:)
