First, I would like to thank Vicki from http://vicki-2bagsfull.blogspot.com/ for hosting this, genuinely caring about others, blog party. Thank you, Vicki!
Hi! I’m Terry!
I am happily married to Gary for 31 years. We are the proud parents of Meredith, Rick, Shannon and Tracy. They are 24 years old. Yep, all four of them. They are quadruplets.
I am a special education teacher in an elementary school for grades 3, 4 and 5. I love my job! Today is a snow day, blessing me with the opportunity to prepare the blog party! Yay! Snow days are a wonderful perk!
I am an avid knitter, crocheter and needle felter. I love making gifts for my family and friends.
This is a pillow I made for my sister.
These pillows were a joint project with my sister-in-law Doreen. She crocheted the squares, I put the them together and made the pillows, then we sent them to our niece for her birthday. Doreen is the angel in my life that taught me how to knit and crochet.
I am the founder of The Lemonade Blanket Project. I collect handmade blankets to be sent to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. The wonderful people there distribute the blankets to children who have cancer, are presently in treatment for cancer, or who are cancer survivors. The mission of the Lemonade Blanket Project is to let the children know that we all care about them.

I started to blog, about 2 years ago, because everyone told me that I should write a book about raising my quadruplets. I chose to start a blog and called it The Dorm: Now and Then. However, I found myself blogging about many other things besides my kids. So, I started this blog, Sharing Divine Inspiration, which includes all the blessings in my life. I write about my family, my hobbies, my faith.
I start each day at 5:00 a.m. I come down the stairs, put on a load of laundry, make a cup of coffee and sit down to spend time with God. I always have my first cup of coffee of the day with God. During this time I listen to Divine Guidance, Wisdom and Inspiration. I choose to live my life following that Guidance, Wisdom and Inspiration, and here, on this blog, Sharing Divine Inspiration, I choose to share it with you.
I want to share this with someone too!
I made this just for Vicki’s Grow Your Blog Party! I knit felted the blue background, then needle felted the design. It can stand on a table, or you can hang it on a wall. There is wire on the back for hanging. I will randomly select a winner from those who comment on this post. Just leave a comment to be entered. Be sure to provide your email address so I can contact you for your mailing address when you win.
I look forward to meeting you all at Vickie’ Grow Your Blog Party!!!
With Love, Terry
