Today I saw my counselor and we talked about my trip and how I was doing.  She said that she noticed that I was starting to get a sparkle back in my eyes and I was smiling a little more.  I believe she said I looked like someone that was coming to peace with herself.  There are reasons that I believe that I look better (my island tan, lol) actually something much deeper than most people understand.  The best way I can describe it is this.......there is a part of me that is missing, a part of me that is coming to terms with realizing that because of my insecurities I lost the most important things in my life.
 
I ask God everyday for just one more chance, ONE more.  I am staying strong in my conviction of faith and what my future holds for me.  I AM UNBREAKABLE this time!!!!!!!
 
My holidays could have been so different but I can only look ahead for future holidays to be as wonderful as any could be.  My New Year will be brought in again without the ones I love.  They will be in my heart and soul!!!!!!
 
Every new day is a possibility that everything I wronged can be made right.
 
Keep me in your prayers.
Teresa

That is fantastic news Teresa. I think I understand what you mean regarding faith. Although I think our faith is different, the concept is the same and that having it gets you through to the end of the tunnel. Try not to look TOO far into the future mind, things can change and you might have to re-schedule your diary! tongue 

Its great to hear such a positive Teresa!

Thanks so much you guys, you are my inspiration!  The last few days have been a little rough but I am making it.  There have been so many signs that have actually brought me to tears lately.  Although sometimes I really feel like I dont deserve goodness in my life, there they are, signs things that keep me moving towards a different future. 
 
I also got some great news regarding my housing!  I have an appointment day after Christmas to see an available home.  Better start working out, no one to help me move :(.
 
Anyway although there are moments that I shed some tears over my losses lately and my sister's health which is getting worse since I saw her, I try to keep my faith in what is yet to come.
 
Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year.
Teresa

Teresa,

My dear friend, what can I say that hasn't already been said. I'm so glad you've gotten your 2nd wind so to speak. I'm happy someone is seeing a sparkle in your eye. You know what I love most of all about you? It's your compassion. Stay strong and everyday walk with your head held high. I'm rooting for you and you're always in my thoughts.

Wow, what a great group of friends I have.  It makes me feel validated to know so many people see good in my person, it really makes me tearful.  Yes I am feeling better but still am missing a huge part of my life, I truly think without that 1% of my life that is missing, I shall never be really complete, I feel OK most of the time but I do feel a loss that no matter how better I feel, i will feel incomplete.
 
On a much better note!!!!!!!  My faith has paid off!!!  I have a house!!  I looked at yesterday and simply fell in love with it.  It isnt much on the outside but extremely beautiful on the inside, it has an old fashioned look about it, I ABSOLUTELY CANT WAIT TO BE IN IT!!  I am hoping to be in no later than the middle of Januuary, asking for a miracle of help in this moving thing, I hate moving!!!!
 
Thanks for all your prayers and thoughts, you guys are amazing!!!!
Teresa

Hey Faithful,

I am so happy for you. I bet you are so excited to move into your new house. I hate moving too. It seems like no matter how careful I am I always lose something.

I want to congradulate you on this. I know how worried you were, wondering if you would find something. I am so glad that you did. And we all were praying for you. Guess having faith really works.

keep up the good work, or should I say keep the faith.

hugs,

Hi everyone,
I really have appreciated your prayers and thoughts.  Please continue to keep me in your prayers and thoughts as of today I really need them.  I am ok, things are great but going a little rough for me.
 
With all the good things that are happening, I have a sense of being alone and not being able to share some of these things.  Along with feeling hopeful and happy, I have a hard time dealing with the very things that keep the ones I love away from me.  Since being with my sister, I have realized that loving someone should be something that is sacred because maybe one day you will have to face this big world by yourself.
 
Please pray for me, all the wonderous and sad things that are going on in my life.  My sister is doing ok.  I am hoping to spend more time with her within the next month or two.  Finances lately have made everything dfficult.
 
Thanks so much for listening and posting, you guys are Godsends.



Teresa

Hi you guys,
Day is kinda rough.  Many decisions to make today and I am at a loss.  I cant put what I need to do in perspective, my mind is so boggled.
 
Started on my upstairs today to try to get things moving so I wouldnt have so much to do.  I will tell you that I was teary eyed and wished I had someone to help me, I guess I feel overwhelmed in doing things alone.  My best friend and her boyfriend are supposed to help me but with her bipolar disorder, it is hard because she maybe having a bad day and cant help.  Mental illness is great is it not?
 
Anyway, just wanted to "talk" to someone.  Thanks for your ears, I better get back to moving stuff.
 
 
Teresa

Teresa,
 
When you live alone, moving is no easy task, I know.  I sold my home just a little over a year ago and because of health reasons decided not to buy another home.  I leased a house for a year and found that wasn't working out.  A month ago, my former neighbor from my old neighborhood found a great apartment next door to where she and her husband had just built their new home and she felt that I needed to be next door so she could take care of me.  Isn't that sweet?  The local university bought all the homes on the street in our old neighborhood so they could build a new building.
 
Back to moving, once you get all your things in your new place, just take your time getting things unpacked and put away.  You can make it fun.  Try placing furniture, pictures and accessories in different places than where you had them before.  It sounds like you are in an older home.  I love older homes.  That's why I wasn't happy with the house I leased for a year. The house I sold was built in 1929 and I put my heart and soul into renovating it.  That was back when I was healthy. This apartment is in the historic district and I just love it.  You can do so much with an older home.
 
Tell me about your house.
 
Big Hugs!

Thanks Another Day,
 
Today I just felt as if something wonderful was going to happen.  It is weird, all day I just waited and waited but noone surprised me. Just a really comforting feeling.
 
As far as my house, IT IS BEAUTIFUL!!!  The strange but wonderful thing about this house is that I will be moved in on a very special day for me.  A day of significance that once again gives brings faith and a sign of hope at least for me.  God has always shown me that no matter my life is he is there no matter what.  Usually when you are on this list for housing, you are on it for at least a year before you even get a call for a home.  The last time I applied for housing it took 3 years and I moved to a city I really didnt want to but it was affordable and not knowing it then but living there changed the direction of my life.  For that I will always be thankful!!
 
My house is really big, beautiful woodworking with french doors, bench seat windows and alot of room.  I cant wait to move in. It is going to be hard there alone because the house is so big but Geremiah, my son will be with me every other weekend.
 
There is a little bit about my house, I cant describe how wonderful it is.
Teresa

Thanks Michelle,
Yes God is really working miracles in my life.  I  have gone through alot of pain of my own doing but I always say the God knows my heart and I will do whatever I have to do to have a true heart. 
 
I try every day to do and be better, but the outcome is so wonderful!!!!

Teresa,
 
It sounds like a house I would really like.  It has character.  Just from the little bit you've told me, it sounds beautiful.  Now you can take your time and make it your own.
 
I'm really happy in my new apartment.  I can't believe the dining room.  It is larger than the dining rooms in any of the three houses that I have owned.  It has the French doors too and 13' ceilings.  I think once you've lived in an old home, it's hard to live in a newer home.
 
When you get settled in, we'll have to talk.  I have some fabrics that I have changed my mind about.  If you can use them, you can have them.
 
Have fun!

Hey Carla that sounds great!!!  I didnt remember you moved as well, boy so you know the stress with excitement I feel right now. :)
 
Thanks so much for the idea about the fabric, I will definately get a hold of you, after all I miss seeing your emails.
 
Talk to you soon!

Hi Everyone~
It has been a little while but I wanted to let you know that I am in my new house.  It is wonderful and I do truly love it.  I wish I could put some pics of it here so that you can see it!!!
 
Things have been both wonderful and heart wrenching.  I am so overcome by things that are happening in my life that sometimes I feel numb.  It is almost like the most devastating things are almost tolerable as if I expect them to happen.  It is like my feelings are getting so hard that although I mourn things that are important to me, I feel as if the things that are not that hurtful to me anymore are not hurtful for the other person.  I feel as others have things in their lives that make them complete and I don't or I have ruined the chance to have what others have.  I guess I get tired of trying to prove to people that I have opened my eyes for the first time in my life because I for the first time have found that I don't have to prove anything to anybody but me and I can handle that.
 
I am doing ok, just wanted to drop a note and let you know I was thinking of you guys.
Teresa

Teresa,
 
How is the house coming along?  Mine is rather discombobulated at the moment.  I don't sew at all, but I've been working on a window treatment on a bay window in my kitchen that is 10' wide.  I have used three different fabrics that I already had, a stable gun, a hammer and some nails.  I'm thinking it's time to call in reinforcements.  :-)
 
Take care!
