Because he lives I can face tomorrow, Because he lives, all fear is gone; Because I know he holds the future, And life is worth the living, Just Because HE LIVES!
I am starting to count my 1,000 gifts and there is no better time than now. I so want to see the small things…. 1. For the gift of Hope that Easter brings 2. That God created families 3. The Joy of children and then when mine married I got two more. 4. The Unspeakable Gift of grandchildren and in my case 4 little boys 5. The Miracle that we all live in the same town 6. That Amanda has the opportunity to go back to school and achieve her DREAM 7. Blog friends 8. That I live in America, as messed up as it seems most days. 9. That I have money for gas 10. An email from an old friend on just the day I need it. 11. Parkers invitation to a Youth Leadership Conference in Washington and that he can afford to attend. 12. A new beginning for one of my kids. 13. New Beginnings for all of us. 14. Jacks recovery, nothing short of a MIRACLE 15. Snail mail 16. Today, grateful that its not tree season 17. That I had the energy to clean out our storage building. (I really was not sure I did) 18. New grandbabies coming for friends this month 19. A doctor that is a phone call away, ALWAYS 20. That we finished our taxes, probably the most dreaded work of the year. to be continued……
I am a wife to Jack, Mom to Greg and Amanda, Mother-in-law to Micah and Dana. Grammy to Parker, Jack, Austin and Grayson, which just happens to be the best job I have EVER had.
I have owned Baskets and Bows for the past 17 years, which primarily is a gift basket business year around and a Holiday Decorating service for 3 months out of the year.
I live in Louisiana. I am an admitted Christmas and Disney addict! Your interest in my "tree decorating" business, on my family blog, Teresa's Treasures, is the reason for this special blog. I plan to give you tips, pictures, and stories that will help you make your holiday decorating a bit easier and most of all MAGICAL. That's my goal for all my clients and I hope I can pass that on to you.
Feel free to email me any questions you may have. I will try my best to answer or help you solve decorating problems.
You may find the blog title strange if you have not been a reader of my family blog. Check out the link to MY FAMILY and I think you will understand. Ten years ago, just as the baby born in Bethlehem on Christmas Day changed my life, a Baby Boy named Parker radically changed our lives. Both of those babies are the best things that EVER happened to me. When Faith Hill sang this song last year, it just became my favorite. If music on the blog bothers you or you are not a Faith Hill fan, feel free to mute it on the player.
