** 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}} **

FLASHBACK FRIDAY

Me, Tammy and Becky

This is a really old picture of my nearly life-long BFFs and me during one of our 'reunions' somewhere around 1998, I think. Don't ya just love my big 80's hair?? :0) Tammy, Becky and I have been friends for close to 30 years and, even though we don't see each other or talk as often as we would like, we are still very, very close.

The three of us became friends when we were around 10 or 11 years old and were all members of the same church. We went to separate schools (Becky and Tammy went to one and I was at another), but we were together nearly every weekend and any other chance we got. We were inseparable!

Once we became adults, life took us each our separate ways but we've never lost touch with one another. Oh, we often go really long periods of time without seeing or even talking to each other, but that never affects the strength of our friendship. When we finally do get together, whether in person or via email/phone, it is always as if we were never apart. We are always able to pick right back up where we left off and chat as if we do it every day!

There is just something truly special about life-long friendships and I am so thankful to have these very special women in my life. We have really shared A LOT together over the years - some good, some bad. We've definitely seen our fair share of both. However, I can definitely say that all the times we've shared together are AMAZING treasured memories that I wouldn't trade for anything in this world!

Here we are again in 2000. I hope we can get together again soon. It has been way too long!

These ladies are incredible blessings and I know in my heart that if I'm EVER in need, they will always be here for me.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!


Blessings,

Teresa

That kind of friendship really is a blessing. Lela and I (we make up Two Normal Moms - our blog) have been friends since we were about 5! We are lucky ladies!
