My Grandson and his miracle

I have had quite a bit of highs and lows this week! Just when it seems all is right with the world....BAM!!!

My oldest daughter turned 23 yesterday!! I can't believe she is that old.....that I am that old!!!!! Where has the time gone? And she is expecting her third child, my third grandchild in November?? Geez, get the oxygen and the walker ready for me!!!!

She lives in Tennessee and was going to come to Florida to spend her birthday. What a great thing! I was so excited. Then at the end of last week she called me...Mom, a shelf fell over on Logan (youngest grandson) and they are rushing him to the ER. I can't even tell you the emotions that flooded me! Fear...is he going to be ok?, empathy...my poor little girl going through this, guilt....I am not there!! After a few grueling hours of sitting, waiting, and praying I get the next call. He has fractures in his face and skull and they are air lifting him to Vanderbilt in Nashville. The worse parts after this were the pictures!!!

This is the picture we received after he was air lifted and admitted to Vanderbilt. This picture came with the news that there were two fractures to his face one to his skull, and he may need surgery. My heart sank and I was so upset!! Everyone posted for prayer and with in an hour there were prayers coming in from all over the nation and some from out of the states! It is very nice to know that there are that many praying people!!!

The next day I received a second picture....


He was sitting up, fully coherent, and was talkative! He was telling the doctors Thank you when they came in and was his happy self!! Prayer changes things!! Over night!!!

By that afternoon they had removed the neck brace and his daddy finally got to hold him!!!


Look at how much peace is in that babies face!!! Yea dad looks like he needs some sleep and I am sure by that time he did!!

Wow God sure is powerful!! 

The next day I get another picture to my phone:


It says "We are going home!!!"  

Such a miracle. Over the next few days my daughter would text me telling me that his eye was opening more and more everyday and that he was doing well. Then yesterday I got the best picture yet!!!


Although he still has a bit of the Rocky Balboa look to him he is amazingly better! He is truly in God's hands and a walking miracle and testament to God's healing powers!! Less than a week later and he is doing great!!

Thanks to all who prayed and asked about him!!!

Picosure Laser Tattoo Removal Review!!!

I have been stuck with a tattoo that I hate for a very long time now. I had looked into removal before but the cost was way too much. I had looked into covering it up but never fell in love with anything that would cover this hideous thing up.

I finally found out about Picosure!! This laser is amazing!

Why I love it:

NO Scarring, Fewer treatments than previous lasers by as much a 50%, less cost, and less discomfort!
But does it work?? I have had one treatment and these are my results: WARNING THE SECOND TWO PICS ARE KIND OF GROSS!!!!

Pic one: my very gross tattoo before the treatment. Yea what was I thinking??? Pic two: directly after the treatment. Lots of frost and you can see the blisters forming. this is actually a good thing haha

Pic 3: a gross mess. But it wasn't hurting. It actually looks worse because of the goop you have to keep on it.  Pic 4..Almost all the way healed and wow at the amount of color that is gone from it. Granted it isn't a clear pic because I had to take it m…

Things I am loving....Bem (pronounced Beam)

I am not easily impressed when it comes to speakers for my phone. I have had a few and not any of them have delivered what I was looking for. 
This Christmas I received the Bem (pronounced Beam) Bluetooth mobile speaker at our company party. I took it home and put it to the side for a few days. Never really giving it much thought. A few days later while putting some stuff away I ran across it again and decided to charge it up and give it a try.
Let me just say I was blown away! The sound that comes out of that little black cube is sensational! I was very impressed. While obviously it won't be mistaken for your surround sound it also will never be confused for one of those sketchy little portable speakers either!
I use my Bem when I am cleaning house because I can just pick up the little box and move it from room to room, but I can't wait for this summer when I can use it at the beach! No more leaving my car doors open at the beach I can park on or carrying a radio when I have t…

How to keep your eye safe from Makeup

Your eyes are precious!! Here are some tips for avoiding infection and abrasions from your makeup!

1. Keep it to yourself! Your mom always said you should share but in this case it is an absolute no no!! Sharing eye makeup means sharing bacteria and disease. No matter who it is!!


2. Keep it outside the line! Keeping your liner to the outside of the lash line prevents abrasions to the lids and eye. Applying to the waterline increases the chance that particles will migrate into the tear film over the cornea . This increases your chance of infection and irritation.


3. Keep sharp!
Keep your liner sharp so that the line is more precise. This will help lessen the chance to scratches to your eyes. Also make sure there are no wooden splinters left behind when you sharpen and that it sharpened evenly on all sides.

4. Keep it Fresh! Replacing all eye makeup every 3-4 months avoids bacterial infection. Also avoid products that have expired. A good rule of thumb with mascara is whe…
