** 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

Jonathan and Morgan
Prom 2009

This weekend is Prom weekend for all the high schools in our county. This year, however, my girls will not be going for various reasons. Rebekah is only a sophomore, so she will have a chance her junior and senior year. It just depends on what is going on in her life at the time.

Morgan has definitely never been much for getting all dressed up in 'girlie-girl' stuff. She has always been my tomboy and has loved every single minute of it! Give her a football and a yard full of boys to mow down while she is running with it and she is happy - and pretty darn good at it, too! :0) Originally, she swore she would NEVER, EVER go to the prom but somehow down deep I think she really did want to go....or she at least wanted to appease her mother by doing so.

Last year, Morgan's best friend, Jonathan, was a senior and knew he was going to enlist in the Marines the very day he turned 18. It was something he had always dreamed of doing. That meant he would be heading off for basic training as soon as he graduated. So, after much debate, he and Morgan decided they would go to his senior prom since he wouldn't be here this year to take her to hers. I was SO excited when they announced they would be going!

They looked so amazing. It made me so happy to see the two of them all dressed up and I think they really did have a great time after all.

Silly, as always! :0)

Now Jonathan is almost finished with his training. He is coming home next week for a short visit. He will be here for Morgan graduation and graduation party and then he's off to Camp LeJeune, N.C. for a short time. After that, it is quite possible he will be deployed to Afghanistan in July. We would truly appreciate your prayers for this incredible young man as he goes off to serve our country.

I love her dress :) So, do all the proms across the country really happen at exactly the same time? Doesn't that make it hard if you have a boyfriend/girlfriend at a different school, because you might want to go to both...

Emily said...

Oh! Your daughter looks beautiful! And I'm glad she went to prom, too, even if she was a year early!

Best wishes to her friend as he finishes basic training. He sounds like a good man!
