Teresa Is The Birthday Girl Today!

Happy Birthday to Teresa @ Mysterri2me2 (I love her blog name! It's a very cute play on words! I see a lot of her blog friends call her Terri, but she's always been Teresa to me, and sometimes T!).

And I love this picture of Teresa, I've always loved black and white photos and I think Teresa looks especially pretty in this one. And it somehow suits her, although when I think of Teresa I think of a very colorful personality!

Teresa's posts have brought me to both laughter and tears. You can feel the immense love that Theresa has for her children and grandchildren as she writes about them. Teresa's blog is reflective, thoughtful, introspective, at times pensive, at times mournful, at times joyful, at times so much fun (Teresa has a wonderful sense of humor) and it is always so expressive as she does so much soul-searching. Teresa is a deep thinker and I find her blog stirring up so many of my own emotions as she invites us to walk along with her on her journey. And I admire Teresa's honesty, as she doesn't pull any punches when writing about her life, her faith, her feelings, her insecurities, or any given situation she may be in the midst of. Teresa sometimes writes about searching for something that eludes her, and I get that, because there are times I feel that exact same way, something just beyond my grasp, but not knowing even exactly what it is. Teresa has inspired me to do some of my own soul-searching, and she's inspired me to find a deeper relationship with God, and she's inspired me in other ways too, she's inspired me with her healthy eating tips, and just recently she has inspired me to purge my home of clutter as she has posted about making space in her home and donating to charity.

Well, T, I hope your special day is a very happy one! Stay strong and keep writing and blogging!

Love to you,

  11. Wow...with every post for my Birthday, the tears, keep flowing down my cheeks. I feel so blessed by everyone, and all of the wonderful things you all are saying about me. I only wish I were half the person you describe...
