The Eyes are the Window

So, I feel like the gift of an artist is to capture what isn't there.

Chaia was a crab today. Part of it was she pulled out her NG Tube. Part of it was that she got dual shots in her thighs yesterday and was still feelin' it today. Part of it was she was awake too much.

But anyways, crabby. Grumpy. Cranky. Crying. Whining. Demanding to be held. Demanding a pacifier continually.

So for someone to capture these on a day like today...

means somebody is an artist.

That somebody is Sarah Ishler from Sarah Marie Photography.

She and her husband/assistant/human backdrop came up again today to capture a few more pictures of Chaia. We had never met Sarah prior to her catching wind of Chaia's story and offering to come up and capture Chaia's story through her lens. The two times we've been with her have been a blast and the end result speaks for itself.

Check out Sarah's facebook page, searching Sarah Marie Photography or go to her website here Sarah, you are an artist! Thanks so much!

Chaia has finally gotten past the grumpy stage and is sleeping hard right now...which means I need to do the same.

Merry Christmas!

I have given you an example to follow. Do as I have done to you. I tell you the truth; slaves are not greater than their master. Nor is the messenger more important than the one who sends the message. Now that you know these things, God will bless you for doing them. JOHN 13:15-17

Merry Christmas!
