Welcome

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.

Praising the Lord from the Hospital Room

We are praising the Lord this morning! Rachel's headaches are down to a 6! Praise the Lord! The medicine seems to be working...she has better color in her cheeks....her eyes are bright and shiny....and she is smiling again!

One of the medicines made her sick in the night but they quickly gave her another medication to help with that. She feels really good this morning.

Of course she is a little tired but maybe she can take a few naps today. The nursing staff is taking excellent care of her. They came in and checked on her 7 times during the night (after midnight). She was able to sleep through a couple of the visits. Cooks Children's Hospital is an amazing place and we feel very blessed to be here.

Her daddy and I are so thankful that we can stay with her the entire time and Rachel is glad too. We have a little couch/bed like thing that Buzz (he snored a lot) can sleep on. I sang us to sleep last night by singing "Sleeping Double in a single bed" or something like that. And neither one of us rolled off onto the floor and we were glad 'cause one person in our family in a hospital bed at a time is more than enough!

I think her breakfast is on the way, she ordered fruit loops (her fave) and pop tarts. Starbucks is a few floors below us. Life is good... scratch that...God is good...all the time!

I'll try to post more later. Thanks for your continued prayers!

Joyfully,
Kristi

Isn't wonderful to to be able to praise God in the midst of a storm... praising Him for the little things that are actually big steps... praising Him for Fruit Loops... praising Him for Starbucks... (AMEN to that one!)

I will continue to pray for Rachel.
