** 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}} **

HAPPY 1st BLOGOVERSARY



Today is a very special day! It is my one year 'Blogoversary'! Is that really even a word?!? It is so hard to believe that it has really been one full year since I started this blog. I know I've been saying this a lot lately, but time really is flying by. The past few years have been quite difficult for my family and me - that is for sure. However, this past year was made a tad bit easier once I finally decided to attempt this crazy thing called blogging! I have truly loved having a place where I can come and write whatever I want, whenever I want. And I have shared it all; the good times and the bad, the successes and the failures, the celebrations and the disappointments, etc. I have shared about my health, my heart, my faith, my family and everything in-between. In return, I've learned SO much from SO many and I've met some of the most amazing people from all over this world; some who have even become some of the best friends I've ever had! It has been one heck of a year and I'm truly proud to call this little corner of the blogosphere my home!

Thank you, my friends, for spending your time with me. Thanks for reading what I write AND never failing to leave such sweet, encouraging words for me when you stop by. (And for those of you who read but don't comment, I truly appreciate you just as much!) I couldn’t ask for better people in my life and I honestly thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your love, encouragement and support. It means the world to me.

May the coming year be just as amazing as the first!

Blessings,


Teresa

Happy one year blogaversary. Thanks for dropping in on my blog and leaving an insightful comment. I appreciate that. I read several of your posts. So sorry about the passing of your grandma. That is always hard, even when you know they have moved on to a better place. Take care.

I'm your newest follower and a fellow believer. Found your blog through Friday Follow. I have a friend with dysautonomia named Lynn Adams...she has written a book about it called "God Needs Me" that is so inspiring to both people who suffer from the condition and those who don't. You can find it on Amazon if you're interested! Please feel free to stop by The Farris Wheel and say hi. :)

You have a wonderful blog! Thanks for finding mine at: http://www.givingnsharing.blogspot.com and http://www.familyliteracyandyou.blogspot.com

I too have a chronic illness - Fibromyalgia and it has been amazing how supportive my internet friends have been. I've been toying with adding ANOTHER blog - but don't know if I can' give it the care and time it would need to grow and so that I can share what life with fibro is like and how we can help others with chronic illnesses. Good for you!

Tina Peterson said...

I should tell you I'm now following you on FB, Twitter, and your blog of course.

Thanks for twittering my Brugo Mugs Giveaway. =0) Yay!

Happy Belated Blogaversary! Your testimony of strength and courage in adversity is a blessing to the blogging community. Cheers to a new year!

I tried to comment on your rainbow/convenant post, but couldn't find a place. What a special post. I know that any post that includes pictures or writings of my children are always my favorite - like icing on the cake:) What an awesome picture!
