The Art of Life
Photobucket I'm so glad you're here! "The Art of Life" is where I share my journey as an artist & Momma. It's a place where I hope to encourage other women that they are artists too. In this small little space I seek to share, document, and be reminded of God's wonderful grace, all around us. ....And I would be so happy to have you journey alongside me! So grab a cup of coffee and linger for a while. I hope you leave feeling refreshed. Photobucket

Still here

~~Still here. Barely. I've gone from being a patient to being care-giver to two very sick girls. What makes it even harder is that all of last week and for the next couple of weeks Dustin has had to leave very early and not get home until very late. He's so busy with work and with working on a vehicle for us. It's very tiring for him and it also means that I've had to go through most of this on my own. I'm not complaining, really. It's just that I know I'm not a SuperMom. I turned in my cape a long time ago. But sometimes I forget that. And sometimes you don't have any other choice but to pray for strength and muddle through. We'll make it. I'm just ready for this week to be over.
~~And apparently my blog has been a bit boring. I've had 2 people unsubscribe in the last couple of days. I don't know why that kinda hurt a little. I started this blog for myself. I used to post a lot more encouraging thoughts and inspiration. Maybe that will come back in a few weeks. But for now I'm going to concentrate on getting my little family healthy and well. They are my number one priority.
~~I hope everyone is staying well. (And I really mean that!)

I'm sorry to hear that. Sick kids are so hard. It is difficult to see them go through that and there isn't anything we can do but comfort them. It is not fun because you comfort them and then you get sick. That is what has been going on in our home these last few weeks. Not fun at all. I hope the girls get better quickly and you can recuperate.

No rest for the weary. That's what it is to be a Mom. Sometimes I question God whether I was really cut out for it, and whether He's sure I'm capable to raise these kids. I'm sure it was harder for Moms in the past, too, without our modern conveniences. Still, Motherhood is the ultimate proof of how hard it is to love others the way God loves us. I pray for peace not to resent the little things (like having to take care of the kids when I'm not well myself yet). So my prayers are with you too!

Don't worry about your feeds! Mine bounce up and down and sometimes it is Feedburner. It is sad to think that someone doesn't like what I write, but then again I have unsubscribed some some as well.

Feel better soon!

Hi there Kasie

I really hope that your two beautiful girls make a speedy recovery. They are so lucky to have a mum like you. In their eyes you are perfection.

Here's hoping that very soon this will all be a distant, blury memory.

Hi Kasie,

Just wanted to let you know that the comment deleted by the author was mine. I re-read my comment after I posted it and wasn't happy with some of the wording. So deleted it.

I'm so sorry to hear that the girls have been feeling poorly. It is certainly no fun to have sick kiddos!

On the unsubscribe note, when I did so, which was some time ago, it was because I was checking your blog more quickly than the notices came out. Seemed that it was over 12 hours, maybe even closer to 24 hours after you posted that I got the notification. So I unsubed just to get one less email in my inbox.

Hope every feels better soon and Dustin stays well. Come see us!

So sorry you all are not well. I know it's hard, not feeling 100% and taking care of sick little ones too. Take care of the important things and all the little stuff will work itself out. Hope everyone feels much better very soon!

I watch your blog every day, and am most interested in what you have to say. Of course I'd love to see a new painting, but at least you keep us posted. You may be doing it for you, but I am most definitely getting something out of it and certainly plenty to make it worth coming back every day!

Hey, I totally understand! My hubby just got over the "month-long bug" The kiddos have been sick this past week and yesterday my git-up-&-go got up and went. I was in bed from 1pm on! That's quite an accomplishment for a mother! :-) Am feelin' better now, though. Sure will be prayin' for you all! Won't it be wonderful when the spring weather comes to stay?!!

You have had a miserable time. It will get better and sometime you will be able to laugh about it. ....I think! :)
