** 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}} **

Today my middle daughter, Morgan, officially becomes an adult. It is so very hard for me to comprehend that it has actually been 18 YEARS since she made her grand entrance into this world!! It is even more difficult for me to believe that in just a few short weeks she will be graduating from high school (with honors!) Then, in the fall, she'll be heading off to college -- the college she has been dreaming of since she was a little girl!! As her mom, I am extremely excited for her and I can't wait to see what the future holds for her in her adult life. However, I must admit that over the last few months, I have really been struggling with all that is about to happen and I am definitely less than happy about the fact that another one of my daughters has somehow transformed into a woman while I wasn't looking. It's scary how that happens! You blink and they go from a curious little toddler to an insecure, hormonal 'tween'. You blink once more and they are grown! Time sure does fly.

I found this poem today. As I read it, it made me really think of each one of my three daughters individually. I decided to post it here as a dedication to Morgan on her very special day.

My Daughter

You'll never really know, my dear,
Just how much you mean to me,
A mother's love, buried so deep,
That only my heart can see.

When I sit and really stare at you,
All I can do is grin,
Somewhere down deep inside,
I see myself within.

I'd never change a thing in you,
I thank God that you're so fine,
Even when you're at your worst,
I'm so proud that you are mine.

The roads we have traveled,
were not always that good,
I would take back ALL the pain you've felt,
If only I could.

I know that I'm not perfect,
It's the best that I can do,
But everyday, I thank the Lord,
For a daughter as special as you.

Morgan, I am truly thankful the Lord chose your dad and me to be your parents. What an awesome blessing! We are so very proud of the Godly young lady you have become. We are so excited to see where this new journey called adulthood is going to take you. We know it is going to be amazing! We love you more than you will ever know.


Love Always,

I've only made it to birthday #3 with my oldest but I can see how time will fly by so fast with them. She sounds like a lovely woman.
