~~I just wanted to pop in and give an update on my Papa and also to thank everyone who has been praying for him. I truly believe in the power of prayer.
~~Papa suffered a stroke on Tuesday and was in a very bad condition Tuesday night. He couldn't speak, walk, eat, etc and was experiencing pain. My parents made it to Alabama safely that evening and were very afraid that he wouldn't make it through the night.
~~By God's grace and through prayer he was actually able to sleep through the night and began showing slight improvement the next day. He has improved more and more every day this week and when I spoke with my Mother this afternoon she was in awe of how much he has recovered. She said that she's never seen anyone recover so quickly from something so terrible. Today he is speaking. He's also walking and eating on his own and is in very good spirits. Thank You Lord!!! My parents are certain that with time he'll be back to his usual self although it will take more recovery. He's still struggling with speech and some motor skills. It's also a difficult adjustment for him to accept help since he's such an independent person.
~~I believe in miracles and I truly believe that we were given one. It's been one year since Nana unexpectedly passed away and this week has been an emotional time for all of my family. Papa's stroke brought back a lot of memories and fears from that time but I'm truly thankful that we've been given more time to share with him.
~~I know I've been slack on blogging and I truly intend to work at getting into a routine with it. I'm putting the final touches on my cowboy commission and I also have some illustration pieces to share so please check back with me next week.
~~Thank you so much again for your thoughts, prayers and kind comments!!! I'm thankful for every one.
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.
