Day by Day....

Sometimes I just have to share the things that are tugging at my heart. Right now, I am feeling so impressed to share with you about my journey. Hmmm... my journey. This week at the Stationery show was eye opening to me. I was able to see where my creative journey has lead me. I so vividly remember being a young girl and HATING to go with my mom to her clients homes. I thought it was odd than anyone would need someone to "help" them decorate their home. I was probably jealous of the time it took away from me and how hard she worked to provide for my sister and me. I was in the booth talking to a well known store that I never thought I would be talking to. I was beyond excited to see their reaction to my lines. It was a open discussion and I told them WHY I was inspired to design the items in my collections. It was a story and we instantly connected. I knew that by following my dreams and designing as a end consumer... WHAT would I want? WHAT is not available? That it would be something I was proud of. I literally CRIED in my booth today. Yes, I had  a moment... a discussion... something so wonderful happened today that I knew my mother was close by watching. I felt her spirit. I knew my mother is watching over me and she is the reason I ever started into my creative journey. I am at the NSS because of my husband. He is the one who helped me to KNOW that I can do great things if I believe in myself. He is encouraging me like my mother did.

I found out some bad news this week. It's hard. My cute husband needs to find a donor match and my son Zach has a disease that is effecting his back. He was so hurt in the week prior to state playoffs in baseball that he has to not play baseball for the entire Summer months. He was selected to play on the Bucks team this Summer too. He was going to be traveling to different states and playing on this really amazing team. He had to let them know he can't. We are looking at surgery if it does not get better. I prayed and felt instantly that God does not give us anything that we can't handle. I knew that there is always a PLAN B. I know that things change in an instant. YOU can plan all you want but really every day... every moment... things change and happen.

It's hard to see my two boys hurt and I do feel helpless. This week, I would be in my booth and hear my phone text sound ring. I got texts constantly from tyler. " i love you." "i'm so proud of you." "you got this beautiful." "ILYMTAYCSTOF" and many more. My husband is what keeps me going. For all the trials, the medical bills, the fears, the pain, the tears... we just keep going. We take it day by day. We just know that no matter what we have each other. I love him so much and every time something great happened I would tell my girls... text dad. He was there... in my heart... in his heart... distance can't divide this. No matter what DEATH will not stop love. I still have my mother in my heart forever. I know that when Ty or I pass away we have a connection, a love that will FOREVER be felt and we will be together. I just wanted to share this. I love you all and thank you for loving ME... US... my family and helping me feel like I can do this.

I love you Tyler. We can do this. I am in this with you. I believe with all my heart that we are going to find the perfect match and you will make it through this next battle. I'm with you... we can do it together best friend.

Thank you for giving us a glimpse into your heart, it is so full of love and life. Even though your life is not all perfect at this time with your husband and son you still have faith, hope and love.

Hi gorgeous Teresa, oh I have no words that can express how ''welled up inside'' I feel when I read this post. You are such a wonderful, warm, giving, loving person and your entire family is BEYOND special. I often ''feel'' my Dad with me too so I know exactly what you mean about your Mum's spirit being with you. It is the most amazing feeling. Sending majorly large hugs to Zach and Ty and especially to you, dear Teresa.. your attitude throughout this battle is so humbling and makes me want to strive to be a much better person. I love you heaps dear friend. xxxxx

Prayers that a donor match is found and that your son is healed.

Suz said...

Praying for Zach & that he will miraculously get better so no surgery is needed. I believe with you THAT PERFECT DONOR will be found for your sweet hubby - prayers for that miracle. So wonderful that the stationary show has been a successful for you - it's because you design as an end user that's the key

Meesh said...

Wow that is such hard news! Praying for Zach that he will heal and that he will be able to return to the sport he loves and is great at! Also, praying for Tyler that he will get a perfect match and will be fully healed soon and praying for you and the rest of your family as you process the news and go through each step with them. God is using you and this story in so many people's lives so thank you for sharing with us! You are an example and inspiration because of your faith, love and positive outlook! Congratulations on your new success in the stationary world!

I'm a fan and I just love you, I would love to give you a big hug right now. I too know without a doubt that we are not given more than we can handle. I also now that when we feel we can handle no more all we have to do is tell God and he will listen. At those times I have been given more strength to make it through. I am so happy for you that you are following your dream. Sometime when things are a little more calm or maybe need a little boost I'd love to share part of my story with you. Thoughts and prayers for you and your family. PS, I can hardly wait for the new product to be available, I can't decide what I want first, I'm thinking an album.
