Guest Post - The Balanced Life

Hi there.  My name is Sarah and I blog over at Life and Grace.  Robin asked me to share what balance means for me in my current season of life.  There are a few unique circumstances in my life right now that make balance a bit of a challenge.  

For starters, my husband Josh is in his final year of nurse anesthesia school.  The program is incredibly rigorous and a twenty-four hour day leaves him just enough time to fulfill his school requirements and hopefully get a good night's sleep.  That leaves all the duties of home and family to me.  
And then there's my son, Micah.  He's two ... need I say more ;).  He really is a sweet boy and I love being a stay-at-home mommy to him, but two-year-olds aren't exactly low maintenance.  

But I think the most unique circumstance in my life right now is dealing with the grief from losing my daughter, Evie.  Evie died just four hours after she was born due to some genetic anomalies detected at her twenty week ultrasound.  She was born on November 8th and went home to Jesus shortly before 3:00 am on November 9th.  Living with the reality of that loss colors all aspects of my world these days.  

You can read the rest of the post here.  A special thanks to Robin from The Balanced Life for allowing me to share on her blog.
