Welcome to my little corner of the world. I am so honored by your visit today. My name is Kristi and I am married to my college sweetheart(I refer to him here as "Mr. Incredible"), momma to my 2 beautiful girls who are growing much too quickly, a high school computer teacher, photographer, and a gardener (at times~right now I'm growing weeds). I love to laugh, drink strong Starbucks coffee, take pictures, and be anywhere my family is. Jesus is my Savior and I try so hard to be the wife and momma that He has called me to be. I often fail but He lovingly picks me up, dusts me off, and encourages me that with Him all things are possible. Feel free to join me on this journey of faith, stop in and say hello, look around, and leave a comment~I love comments. Why "Kiki's Corner?" My nephews call me Aunt Kiki and I love that too.

Getting Stronger Every Day

"The LORD'S lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, For His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness." Lamentations 3:22-23

Yesterday was a great day! Rachel's headache only creeped up to a 3 (on a scale of 1 to 10) but before bed time was back to a 2. The new neurologist has a wonderful nurse named Carol who doesn't suffer from the same brain malformation but can sympathize with the migraine-like headaches because she has them too.

One quick call to her and new pain medications were ordered so that Rachel's body will have time to adjust to the newly increased dosage of the medicine that she has been taking for the last 6 weeks. We are praying for 0 headache pain today!

Yesterday, the Lord encouraged me to call the doctor's office to make sure that we still had our March 12th appointment. I was so glad that I listened because they had cancelled it and we still have so many questions. Carol put us back on the schedule and we are thankful.

Rachel is looking more like herself every day.
Thank you Mrs. Amanda, Nora, and Craig for the amazing dinner last night. We feasted on ribs, sausage, rolls, potato salad, cole slaw, mac and cheese (Rachel's favorite!), and frosted brownies. We are still full this morning! Ya'll are such a blessing. Thank you for your kindness and generosity. We love you!

I loved this picture of your sweet girl smiling and enjoying food, my friend. What an exceptional God we serve!!

Thank you for you checking up on me when you have so much going on in your life. My Aunt Pat passed away and I have been running back and forth to Vero and my new meds are not setting well with me and I can't tell if it's the stress of things or what. But I loved the verse you shared today...His grace is sufficient. Praise the Lord for that and I'm thankful, for you, my friend.

Hugs today! I'm off to Vero tomorrow early and thru the weekend with no computer but will check in on everybody when I get back. I'm still praying for Rachel and your precious family.
