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

My Blessings

~~I just wanted to pop in and say "Thank You!" to everyone who's been praying and leaving encouraging comments. It means so much. Truly.
~~Savannah had a wonderful day yesterday, a great morning today, and then an awful afternoon- just when I had my hopes up that it was getting better. I was able to get her in to her doctor yesterday and it's looking like she's developed GERD. We're going to be trying some things to see if they help.
~~If you want to know the truth, I'm just exhausted tonight. Flat-out worn-out. Too much worrying; about Savannah and also my sweet friend's precious new baby. (Please pray for her too.) Motherhood is the hardest job I've ever had. Every day it brings me face to face with my own inadequacies. But that only brings me to my knees, which is a good thing. Even when times are rough I'm reminded of my blessings. Just look at those two little faces. I'd have to say that the benefits of Motherhood far outway the hard times.
~~That's it for tonight. My brain can't think of much more.

Matt 11:28 Come to me all you that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
~~This is my comfort.~~

I continue to feel such sorrow for you & your little Savannah. How exhausted you must be!

I do agree that Motherhood is the hardest job. It is also the most important and the most rewarding! The fact that you see your blessings in spite of the struggles says so much about you. You shine all the time Kasie and it is visible to even a stranger! You have a light that eminates from you and your faith is obvious! You are an inspiration to us all!

I am so blessed to know you! I will continue to pray for you and your family!

Love you
P.S. you remind me of your Mother. She has always had the sweetest heart.

Hi Kasie

Motherhood certainly is the hardest "job", yet it is also the only "job" that gives you the privilege of loving like you have never loved before; seeing the world in a new and excting way; developing an appreciation for what's truly important and I could continue with an endless list of positives about Motherhood (as you know and also experience through your girls and talk about through your blog).

As you said Kasie, your children are blessings, they truly are. They are also so blessed to have you as their Mum.

I will pray that the strategies that you and the Doctor put into place to treat GERD will alleviate Savannah's symptoms and provide relief to her.

You are not far from my thoughts and you and your family will continue to be in my prayers my friend.

Sending love and hugs to you

I've been checking in here for news about Savannah and so glad that you all know what is going on now. To me, that is the worst, not knowing what is causing the distress. It sounds like this is very treatable too. I am so relieved. I'm sure you will have her sorted out in no time. Hope you get a chance to relax a bit!
