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

I just realized that I cut the bottom off, lol. It says "Happy Mothes's Day." (Spelled just like that.)

~~Strep has hit our house again. Yesterday at about 5:00 in the morning Sierra woke up saying that her throat hurt. I was really hoping that it was just dry but my "Momma instinct" was worried. I gave her some cold water and she went back to sleep. When she woke up a couple of hours later her throat was worse. With Kindergarten graduation this Friday, I wasn't going to take any chances. We got into the doctor right away and, sure enough, a bad case of strep. I'm just glad that we caught it when we did. She'll no longer be contagious after 24 hours on antibiotics so we should be able to make graduation tomorrow. I just can't believe that she caught it again so soon. It's only been a month!
~~I don't know how to be honest without sounding like I'm complaining, but I haven't felt too great health-wise myself. I'm having the worst trouble sleeping lately; not sure why. I wake up so many times throughout the night. That makes my days a bit rough. On top of that my allergies are starting to go crazy again. (Thank you Oklahoma wind, uggg.) I'm trying to learn to simply take each day as it comes, to be gentler with myself. I'm enjoying having both of my girls home today and watching as they play pretend together. Summer is going to be fun.

Sorry about the illnesses. Drat. The valentine is a bang up card. "The bes mom I evr had." How cool is that?

Hi Kasie

What a precious card - so sweet.

What is it with the latest bug (Strep) that seems to be doing the rounds at the moment. All three of us have had it twice in the last month. One of us just gets over it and then someone else is down with it. Being pregnant and having a major head cold is a real pain as there isn't too much I can take and the chance of getting any rest with my Savanna is almost laughable!! Anyway, today is the first day where my voice is back to normal, Savanna and Troy are well. I am so very happy for this.

Here's hoping that your family (and mine) don't get hit a third time. Surely our immunities should have built up enough to ward this off if it thinks it's coming our way again.

Kasie, I do hope that you can get a good night's rest tonight. I can really relate to you when you say a poor night's sleep makes for a tough day. Everything always seems so much harder when you are tired.
I will pray that you can be blessed with some much needed rest.

Love and hugs to you my friend

Hi Kassie,
Thanks for the kind comments about my artwork. It is nice "meeting" you. I took a look at your work and love what you are doing with the pencils. It's difficult to find time for art while raising a family, but it gets easier!Don't you just love Christine's blog? She is so inspirational.

From all over the country I have been hearing of people getting sick and staying sick more often and longer than usual. I'm not one for conspiracy theories, but it might just be the weird weather patterns this late winter and Spring. I was down for nearly a month with a 'virus' but it felt unusual to me, especially in how fatigued I felt for such a long time. Anyhoo, don't mean to be a downer. I can't wait for some cute photos of that graduation. I hope everyone is feeling better real soon. I pray for you all.
