Hanging in there....

I had the most amazing meeting and opportunity present itself to me this past month. It is truly a DREAM come true. I met yesterday to discuss this opportunity and I knew it was meant to be. I often marvel over the timing of things that are happening for me and our family right now.  I realize some things will and have had to "give" up to do the things I feel are important. There is only so much time and so I have to really feel it's the right decision for me often when I decide to add anything on my plate. I have always tried to listen to my heart and feel "good" about the decisions I make in my life, even the day to day decisions. 

Often voices of opinions from everyone is constantly given to me. "You should do this, I don't think you should do this, You need to do this, I feel like you have to do this, you have to do this,... etc."  I appreciate those well meaning people, but I'm a firm believer that we need to be careful to listen to our own prompting, our own heart, and especially when we know it's God telling us to do something.  Today I had went into work and I felt strongly that it was time to go and see my husband. I wanted and just needed to be with him. I didn't question that voice. I went then and told everyone that I felt Ty needed me. I am at the hospital now. He is just the cutest man alive. I look at him and my heart EXPLODES with love. I know him better than anyone else and our connection is so strong. I cried on and off all day. The crazy thing is that Taylor showed up at my office this morning. I was shocked to see her. She came to help me with so much going on. I was telling Ty how having her come help really saved me today. He got tears in his eyes and I instantly knew he had texted her to come help me. I love this about him. He is in the hospital and he is most concerned about me.... helping me. I am so fortunate I married this man. He is day 4 post transplant. His counts are going down and he is having lots of headaches from the Tacrolinus (this is the medication they are giving him to help with rejecting the stem cells from the donor). He will be on this medication for a year. He has no appetite and they had a nutritionist come in. He was not eating any protein when he was eating and they warned him if he doesn't they will have to do the feeding TPN. He hated this last time. 

My boys are starting school on Thursday too. They both will be in high school. WOW... time does fly. I always tell young mothers- don't WISH your days away. Cherish them, they go so FAST!!!!

I was printing photos yesterday of my daughter that she sent from her mission.  I love this printer too. It is the SELPHY 910. 



It's wireless and I love printing out the pictures she emails me every Monday. It's a highlight of my week. I am trying to do more things like this that make me happy and remind me of the good times.




This is the last week of the 30 days of inspiration. I wanted to show this project called
FOLLOW YOUR HEART.
I am teaching this at my event in NV- Inspiration Unlimited.
That reminds me- if you want to be on my newsletter
and email for my events please email:
events@teresacollinsstudio.com

I wanted to show my BRAND NEW TC Signature Essentials
stickers- journaling snippets.
All the journaling has meaning and has so much value. I designed it to be full of gratitude and about LIFE. 
This is the stickers that are along the bottom of the project. 
PS my matchbox label stickers, wood dots and more are 
SOLD OUT already. I debuted my Summer products
and we are SELLING OUT. So if you see
them and want them... they are now sold out 
on my end. (thanks for the support everyone!) The cards
used on this stand are my STUDIO GOLD ones I designed for the AME WRMK system.

Please tell your husband that there are people out there sending their prayers to him. I think almost everyone knows someone affected by cancer ands it is so hard for them and their family and friends. We need to be there for them in any way we can

I'm so lucky, like you, to have the best, most perfect husband! I just wish I could reach out and make Ty all better. He must feel brighter having your beautiful, smiling face coming in the door, and then spending special time together. If your heart is telling you to be with Ty, that is where you belong. It looks like you could even pop that sweet wee printer in your bag and take it, and some special little journaling materials along with you when you visit, if Ty is
interested. xxxxx

Querida Teresa, siento escribirte en Español pero es la mejor forma de expresar lo que quiero decirte, comprendo esas palabras que has escrito, ese sentimiento de elegir entre la obligación y lo que tu corazón te pide y también comprendo bien lo que cuentas de tantos consejos que se reciben por todos los lados, como tu dices te los dan porque te quieren pero a veces te sientes tan agobiada y tan agotada que son una carga mas bien que una ayuda.
Mi hija Andrea está algo mejor, está respondiendo bien al nuevo tratamiento, así que estamos contentos.
Deseo de corazón que podáis estar pronto en casa! Oraré por eso y Gracias por todo lo que hiciste por nosotros!!! Un abrazo muy grande
