Late in November of last year we lost Mark’s father. Al lost his battle with cancer and he is dearly missed. Thank God he only lasted about a week on hospice when the angels took him home. Sebastian was his buddy and he still looks for him every time he goes to their house. He knows he’s not in the bed anymore, so he talks to Poppy’s picture instead 😦
Speaking of Sebastian, he’s 18 months old already! Remember this little guy?
Well, here he is now…
And those sweet little twin babies my son had…
And let’s not forget my two little scholars…
Where does the time go? I can feel myself aging by the minute!
Last but not least, some of my latest work…
I hope everybody has been as well as can be expected!!
God bless and keep you all, Terri
Hello dear friends! September was a busy month for many reasons, some good and some bad.
In addition to dad, Shawna and Blaine having their birthdays; Sara gave birth to her first child, Sebastian Lee, weighting 7# 1oz, 19″ long, on Sept. 17th. She and her fiance are thrilled with their little cutie pie:
That was the good news!
A week or so after that we found out that Mark’s dad has a fast growing cancer in his throat. Specifically, in the lymphnoid just below his esophygas which feeds all the others below it.
I am asking everyone to say a pray for him, please.
The first of October I lost my best friend, Penny!! Those of you who have been with me for a while know who she is and just how much I loved her. It was a total shock and I am still processing it. The grief has been overwhelming to me. I am praying that if God intends to take Al from us too that he waits for a minute or two so I can get my breath.
When things like this happen, always ask God what it is that He is preparing me for that requires me to be so strong? With everything happening in the world right now I’m not sure I want to know the answer to that question, but that’s a discussion for later on.
Please keep us in your prayers!
Love and blessings to you all!
Hi everyone! My hand is healing slowly and it still is hard to type but I thought I had better jump on here and let you know that I am alive, lol.. I’ve been doing well with my sales at the local hand made shop, yippee! I even had a commission for a candle holder to encase the large sized Yankee candle order and she was so thrilled with it that she promised to be back for more. Lucky me, I have recently had the pleasure of shingles for the second time 😦
Please say a prayer for my eldest brother, Kevin, the one with cancer. He has been in the hospital for a week now. He went in with pneumonia, original diagnosis, but now they can’t figure out why he is so sick.
I have some new pic’s of the grandkids and the latest masterpieces I’ve created, also a few that are still not quite finished. I’m most proud of my owls, my new style of dragons and the one for Sara to give her boyfriend for his birthday.. 🙂 Much love and many blessings to you all!! Terri
First for family bragging:
Next for the Artist in me:
Hello dear friends,
I’m still here but the stress has taken it’s toll. Between my dad, Sara’s suicide watches, Mark’s rare heart diseases, and now my other brother’s cancer that requires aggressive chemotherapy, I’ve been rocked to the core. I know you’ve been wondering and I’m sorry for leaving you all hanging but I just couldn’t find it in me to write. I’ve immersed myself into my clay but that’s not even come easily. I have to make myself do something every day, rather than wanting to. I know this will all pass, it will go as God wills it, and … My brother was the last straw, and he won’t even talk to me 😦 .
I cutting this shorter than what I meant to but the tears are flowing again and I just can’t…
Love and blessings to you all, Terri
