** 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 have SO much to be thankful for but today I want to give thanks to the Lord for the most incredible Mother's Day weekend I've had in quite some time. It was full of lots of good stuff. Not only was I able to spend a wonderful evening with my amazing mom, but I also spent another evening with my three daughters, ALL at the same time! That hasn't happened for Mother's Day in a very, very long time. I received a ton of wonderful goodies, but better yet, we simply had a great time together. I was truly thrilled to be with all three of my girls again. I was also blessed to have my youngest grandson, Mason, here. I wish both of my grandsons could have made it, but, unfortunately, Connor had a bad day at school, so his mommy decided he needed to stay at home with dad. That was a little disappointing because I don't get to see them that often but I still had a wonderful time visiting with Mason. He was a complete mess and kept us laughing the entire time. We took a few pictures that evening and I wanted to share them with you. I hope you enjoy them.....

My girls......Whitney, Morgan and Rebekah

Mason is so adorable. He really resembles his Mom. God surely blessed you with three beautiful daughters Teresa.

I had to catch up on your blog. This has been a really busy week at school.

Dear Teresa,
First, thank you for coming over and following my blog! I am sorry to read about your chronic illness, and so I can't say I've "enjoyed" reading, but I've enjoyed meeting you, and appreciate your ability to have a positive attitude, to love your family and think about others besides yourself, and to be a spokesperson for POTS. I don't think I had heard of it before, and you have done a remarkable job of educating on your blog. Having had ovarian cancer (port and all), chemo, etc., I can honestly say I think I would rather have cancer again than to have a chronic disease. My heart goes out to you. Related to the port and your commenting on the bacterial infections, I am curious if they know why you keep on getting them. I loved my port, although it was "tipped", so gave even the most expert nurses the fits to try to access it--they did not want to do it. It's been removed now, and has been 8 years, the 21st of May, since my diagnosis. I will come back here and read more later (you have a wealth of information which is wonderful!).
Again, thanks for the follow, and I am returning the favor!
