Where’s Terri???

To all of the faithful and lovely readers of this blog, and followers of the popular “Good Morning Mondays” Link-up…  

I’m sure that many of you have been wondering where Terri (aka: my Mum) has been this last week.  She is known for her promptness and consistency here in this space and has so many beautiful relationships and connections with many of you.

Mum (Terri), had a very unfortunate fall on Sunday morning last week, resulting in four complex breaks to her right leg.  Due to this, she has been in hospital (three hours away from home) all week and undergone surgery and all the difficulties you can just imagine this has brought.

She has asked me to update you all and let you know that she won’t be gone long.  Mum is hoping to be able to bring back the Link-Up this coming Monday, God willing.  I’m sure she will love reading your latest inspirations, as they have so often blessed her in the past (and me also, through her!).

Mum also specifically asked me to thank Cheryl Smith from Homespun Devotions for her beautiful, tear-invoking post; honouring Mum and seeking prayers for her.  Cheryl, your words and resulting comments touched not just Mum, but Dad and myself also.  Thank you so very much!!  (PS: I would have loved to taste the cake if it could have happened:))

Thank you all for your prayers, thoughts, love, kind words and also for your incredible friendships you have given and shared with my Mum in the past.  I’m inspired by this community and in awe of the place Mum has been able to create, by God’s grace, for us all to ‘have a cuppa’ together.

Love to you all.

Until the better writing, Terri returns…

  1. Oh, dear Adelaide! Your precious words brought me to tears! I had to stop and read your post to my husband and son, and they were so blessed, also. Your Mum is one very special lady, who has blessed my life and encouraged me so many, many times. She is so dear, and to ask for others to get under the burden and pray for her during this difficult time is the very least I could ever do. You have the same sweet spirit she does, and it was so nice to get to “meet” you today! Please give your Mum a BIG hug from me, and let her know that her name is often being lifted to our Father for complete healing and a fast, smooth, uncomplicated recovery. Sending much love to her, to you, and to your entire family from the Smith household! God bless you all richly….you surely made my night. 🙂

  2. Thank you so much for letting us know. Your mum has been in my prayers since I heard about the accident. I hope she is feeling as well as can be expected and look forward to seeing her here soon. Will she really be able to be home that soon?

  3. I’m so sorry to hear of her injury. Praying for a complete and swift recovery. The Lord allows all things for a purpose. Who knows how the Lord will use this for His glory. Love and prayers.

  4. Tell her we are keeping her in prayer! And tell her to get healed up soon so she can start running the next marathon! (grins) I’ve been thinking of her lately as our seasons change here from summer to fall, and have been away from blogging for a while. Thank you for keeping us all updated!


  5. Thankyou so much for the update as I was wondering where your mum was – however I imagined her on holidays in some exciting place (basking in the sunshine), instead she was in hospital. My prayers are for a quick recovery and that the pain/discomfort isn’t too bad. Sending hugs in your direction.

    Do let Him carry you .

  10. Oh, this is the first I’ve heard of the accident. I’m so very sorry for all Terri’s pain and suffering. I always look forward to Monday and sharing at the “farm.” Your mum is truly a blessing. She is always encouraging and caring. My thoughts and prayers are with her and your family in the days and weeks ahead as she recovers from this accident !!!
