** 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}} **

Hi Everyone,

I really didn't feel much like posting today, but then I learned that I am the 'Featured Blogger' today on Java's 'FOLLOW FRIDAY 40 & OVER', which just so happens to be my absolute favorite Friday Follow blog hop...so I just HAD to tell you!! :o)

I have participated in a TON of these, but so far, Java's is my favorite for several reasons. 1) I have thoroughly enjoyed finding, and getting to know, other women bloggers who are close to my same age, 2) there aren't a ton of rules to follow AND 3) Java is one of the sweetest and most beautiful women, on the inside AND out, that you will ever meet!!

In addition to my feature, Java also announced today that each featured blogger who does not already have a blog button, will receive a button made by her as a special gift!! WOOT!!
Since I did not yet have one, she made one for me!! It is now proudly displayed on my right sidebar and I would be extremely honored if you would grab it and display it on your blog. BTW, I now have a 'Buttons' page. The link can be found at the top of this page. If I do not currently have your button and you want me to display it, please let me know.

I am just thrilled to death to be featured on Java's blog, 'Never Growing Old'. I hope you will hop over there, take a look around and, if you're 40 and over, join in the fun! If you're not old ladies like us, you can still visit!! :0)

I hope you all have a wonderfully blessed weekend!!


P.S. My other favorite is Friendly Friday. You should check that one out, too!

Awww...sweetie! Congrats on being featured on Java's blog! She is such a doll and I love linking up for FF 40 and over. Couldn't do it this week...too much trying to keep up with Blogmania. LOL

Congrats on being featured. And the button. I don't have one yet either. I keep thinking I'm so far behind now, I might as well not worry about it:)
