I AM soooo HAPPY


I am just so happy. I am HAPPY just because. I always count my blessing EVERY SINGLE day. I just feel so much appreciation for ALL that I have.  I wanted to update you all. Ty got his results from the 100 day post transplant. Right now... they do not see the cancer. THIS IS SOOOOO GREAT! They tried to burst my bubble by saying that it's normal to not show up now and usually it will come back at the 2 year post transplant mark. So I will NOT dwell on this. I will dwell on that fact that TODAY they do not see the cancer. He just is getting stronger... every day. He will be able to start getting his immunizations again in June. He has to stay away from large crowds of people right now. 

I love him so much and I just am grateful for EACH day we have together. I live each day with total thankfulness that we are HERE together. I don't think about "what" might happen. It just isn't the way I want to live each day. 

Also, my CRAZY, SWEET... WONDERFUL silly girl... McKay has hit her HUMP day....


McKay (on the left) has been on her mission in Seattle Washington for 9 months now. She is 1/2 way. She mentioned she will be released on or about December 16th 2014.
I send her packages at least twice a month. I sent her my
Instagram banner kit this week with photos of
our family in each of the frames.
She can easily hang this in her apartment.

I could not be prouder of her choice to serve and help others. She just loves the Spanish community and culture. She has made a difference in the life's of others. I am missing her silly
fun ways. I love her positive outlook on life. I guess she is constantly told that she is just "way too happy." I love that she
is this way. I have always taught all my children
that HAPPINESS is a choice.
YOU have the choice each day to brighten and
lighten the world by who YOU are.

So I am flying to meet up with my friends at Fiskars on Sunday afternoon. I am so fortunate to be able to design
with them. MANY good things are in the works.
I decided to teach a little... okay "big" project to the team
when I am there on Monday.

I started to think... I should offer this FREE to all of you too.









So watch for the detailed instructions, photos and supply list coming up in the next few days. I love offering
FREE WORKSHOPS so that
you too can recreate and take classes from me- even
if it's only via my blog.

HAVE A GREAT FRIDAY!!!

Teresa!!! I have been stalking your blog to find out the good news on Ty. I am ever so happy for you and your family. I have a friend that had a terminal brain tumor that was very rare. She started talking a medicine that was not yet approved by the FDA, it was still in testing. They gave her weeks to live. Since she started talking this drug, she has been getting better and better. Her hair has grown back and she is doing tons better and can come scrapbook with us at crops again. This was over two years ago! Miracles happen truly every day! I am so happy that you appreciate the miracle that is TODAY and not worry about tomorrow. I try to live the same way. You are such an inspiration! God bless you and your family. And PS: You're daughter is so inspiring to be happy all the time!

Leslie said...

Soooo happy to hear your good news!!! You and your family have been on such a journey and your strength and inspiration have been amazing...truly amazing. God bless you all!!!
P.S. After my dad's transplant, he was still cancer free after 2 years, 3 years, 4 years, 5 years...miracles happen!

Teresa - Have been checking on your blog to keep updated on how your husband is doing. Was so happy to see that he is cancer free at this time. You are such an inspiration to people and how you keep positive by living one day at a time. This is how the Lord wants us to live each day as a gift trusting that he will take care of the future in the way he sees fit.
