“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that's what
everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows
you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to
your own attention so you can change your life.
A true soul
mate is probably the most important person you'll ever meet, because
they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul
mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life
just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.
soul mates purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little
bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so
new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you
have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual
― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love
My heart will never be the same because of Teresa. She came into my life for a purpose and just as quickly she left me. We had a lifetime to learn in those three short years. She taught me so much . Much of it too deeply personal to share. We gave her a family but God sent her to us to accomplish so much more than we could ever give to her.
As Jenny so eliquently stated- " You could see the depth of her soul in her eyes".
How do you go on with a piece of your soul missing?
It helps to stay busy during the day and the girls really help with that. Nights are very hard. This is when I can still hear her sweet little voice saying-
" I Love You More- I just can't help myself"
"What Princess should I be tomorrow?"
" Good night Jesus, I love You "
" Can I get my ears pierced tomorrow? "
"Gemma is going to be the prince again tomorrow and I am going to be the Princess "
"one more Huggy Huggle"
"One more kiss"
"Good Night- I love you more"
She loved going to Church and singing The Alleluia. You could hear her all the way to heaven.
A person with whom you have an immediate connection the moment you meet -- a connection so strong that you are drawn to them in a way you have never experienced before. As this connection develops over time, you experience a love so deep, strong and complex, that you begin to doubt that you have ever truly loved anyone prior. Your soulmate understands and connects with you in every way and on every level, which brings a sense of peace, calmness and happiness when you are around them. And when you are not around them, you are all that much more aware of the harshness of life, and how bonding with another person in this way is the most significant and satisfying thing you will experience in your lifetime. You are also all that much aware of the beauty in life, because you have been given a great gift and will always be thankful.
WE were given a GREAT GIFT in Teresa. And now she is the Gift for the entire world to share. She was pure LOVE and wanted to give everyone a Huggy Huggle. Each night as she said her prayers, she taught me so much ... The words and feelings that would come out of her heart , I know were right from God. I would sit there in awe as she would pray and thank God for this Blessing of Teresa.
We love you more Sweet Princess!
