from 10,000 FEET


I'm on a plane... 10,000 feet now- headed to Ben Franklin stores in Monroe and Bonney Lake Washington. I have a zillion
things "swirling" in my mind. I am that girl
who simply can't stop the thoughts always
going through my mind.

I have thought a lot lately about LIFE.
I know that with Ty's cancer, I think about EACH day as a GIFT.
I see him FIGHT ever day for his LIFE. I see how many
of us, don't have a clue to what we have. I guess it's true that we often don't realize what we have- until it's gone or we are facing losing something. 

I will never take for granted the daily daily calls and texts from my husband and kids. The simple words of I love you, I miss you and being able to just have this.

When my mother died unexpectantly, I kept her answering machine. I sometimes will go and listen to her saying, "Hey, you've reached xxx-xxxx I'm sorry I'm not home right now, but if you leave a message, I'll call you right back."
I cry every single time I listen to her voice. It's this reason that I have a hard time deleting voice messages on my phone. 

I know some of you can relate. Right?
One day, I was in my bedroom. I was cleaning and I was home alone. I heard a woman's voice and I was a little afraid. I walked out of my room and the answering machine (yes, old and outdated) was talking. It was my mother and her voice. I stopped and fell to the laundry room floor. It was her... it was my mom. It made me cry, but I knew it was HER telling me that she is STILL with me. I knew it. The machine had been unplugged and was hidden away. I was taken back, but grateful.
These reminders tell me that LIFE is one to be cherished, and to FIGHT for it. Be that WARRIOR in your own life. Design your life and dreams. Don't settle. YOU are worth so much and deserve to be happy. I am taking it day by day and focusing on this. I am a firm believer in when life gives you LEMONS... make lemonade and well, why not add some strawberries too. 


I have the FAITH and I'm too stubborn to give up on believing in all that is GOOD in life and each day.

I have NO DOUBT that God inspired me to do my GOLD line of Office and Organization products. I know that GOLD is of great worth.
  I know that GOD sees us as precious and of worth.


I hope that the new TC GOLD products helps others SHINE too. So today on my business Facebook page you can go and comment and share to WiN everything in this photo. If you are NOT on Facebook- it's okay. I will be posting a contest here too at a later date. 
Remember, YOU are worth MORE than GOLD.
Celebrate every moment TODAY....
don't take one simple I love you for granted.
Excited to see all my Seattle friends. YOU are all lifting me
have no idea what your love and support does for me.
xoxo

I know there are plenty who can identify with what you are going through and what you've been through in the past. Know that you are NOT alone, Teresa.

You talking about hearing your Mom's voice really got to me......I've been hearing my Mom too. Especially the past few days. I know that she's telling me I'm doing a good job keeping Dad going as well as keeping myself going. It's been rough, but as you said Faith gets me through it all.

Sending you tons of love and hugs,

Kim

I am in my own cancer battle. Faith & my belief in miracles has been essential. So have your messages. You are a blessing in my life.
