As you may know my husband has been fighting a very aggressive horrible cancer. In the bad times, there is always GOOD things that can make you smile. This sweet photo was sent to me yesterday of my husband Tyler and my son (Tyler). My two favorite Ty's. I was so GRATEFUL for this photo. This was taken on Matt and Kayla's wedding day. I am in the hospital with my husband and when I showed him this photo he smiled. I am thankful that photos can truly take you back to such special moments. I feel LOVE and see love in this photo. These two are best buddies and have a special bond. I don't have words to express how grateful that I am doing everything I can to preserve memories. I challenge YOU to take FIVE photos today with people you love. PLEASE take the time to TAKE photos. Keep a camera in your purse. USE it....
This was sent from my friend Meeghan from Australia. I adore this quote. I kneeled down on my knees here in the hospital room and prayed that I can be strong. I prayed for my handsome husband and poured out my tender emotions to Heavenly Father. Even now, he is most concerned about me and the our children.
I don't believe that life ends here. I know that no matter what happens that Ty and I are going to be together forever. My faith is carrying me. My love for Tyler and his love for me, makes me strong. Life is so precious.
In a couple of days the Teresa Collins Caribbean Cruise is happening. As you may expect or have heard, I will not be attending. I am sending my beautiful daughters to take my place. I would never leave my husbands side. I am so fortunate that everyone attending the cruise has loved me enough to understand. Their love and understand has lifted me and I have felt so much love.
I always try to listen to the spirit and prompting that God gives me and I knew over a week ago that I was needed to be HERE with my
husband. I would have never thought this would be what was happening when I planned this event. Ty was going to be with me. It would be a celebration of his recovery and us together with
my beautiful creative friends. This was not meant to be. Yet, as with life, the TC event will go on. I know that those attending
will feel my love and caring through my projects, details and messages conveyed from my daughters.
