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.

Fragile! Handle with Care!

Not feeling quite like myself today...to be honest, I'm a little bit like Oscar:


I'm thinking going to a beautiful wedding in Grapevine, unpacking, doing laundry, packing again, leaving in less than 12 hours after being home, going to youth camp in glorius Glorieta for a week, learning at camp that my Grandmother was dying, riding the bus home from camp (9 hour drive), unpacking, doing laundry, re-packing, driving 10 hours to Kansas to attend my Grandmother's funeral, singing three songs at her funeral (yes, it was a blessing!), and then turning around only 23 hours after arriving in Kansas to drive the LONG 12 hours home....whew...has left me exhausted emotionally and physically.

My patience level isn't what it should be....I think I'll hide out like Oscar the Grouch until I can find some much needed rest...and a  brand new attitude.  I'm thankful that the Lord provided much needed strength and comfort during it all.  I guess I'm left a bit fragile right now...not accustomed to feeling this way. Please, handle with care....or you might meet Oscar instead of me.  OIY!

Girlfriend you deserve a rest. Sit back, make yourself a latte, kick your feet up and relax! Deep breaths.
Putting on your favorite funny movie might help too. Watch it in your pj's!
Sending gentle hugs! LOL!

I agree...you deserve a rest, REALLY strong starbucks coffee and some quality "you" time to refresh and recharge. So sorry about your grandma. It doesn't matter how old they are, it's never easy. Have a very blessed weekend

You totally deserve to do nothing for a bit and take care of yourself. It's refueling time!!!

You poor soul! praying God gives you the rest and strength you need so you can, step His way today! Grief is very draining, yet knowing our loved ones are basking in the face of Jesus allows us to find peace in their rest. . . .

You poor thing you. I think you need a 'stay-cation'...in your house...for a good 2 weeks. :-)
