The Truth from a Special Needs Mom

As I sit here watching my daughter rest after an exhausting night of vomiting, I can’t help the feeling of sorrow and pity for my child.

After almost 21 years of having nights like this, it doesn’t seem to get any easier watching your child suffer.

At the age of 20 she should be able to run to the toilet when she feels sick, instead she has to struggle to sit up as she vomits all in her bed.

I run to her rescue but can never get there in time to save her from the disgust of lying in her own waste.

She looks at me helplessly and ashamed of the mess and I reassured her that it is ok .

I clean her up, change the bedding and get her back into bed.

An hour passes and I hear the dreaded sound of her gagging, I run to her as fast as I can but I never get there fast enough.

I clean her up again, change the bedding and get her back in bed.

This goes on until morning, as the sun is rising, my eyes are falling but I know I must stay alert to hear the sounds of what sounds as if she is choking on her own vomit.

Now, as she rests so peaceful, I can’t help feeling sorry for the life she has been given. I know she has a purpose in this life and God has a greater plan for her, but why must she struggle so.

I can’t help but feel sorry for myself, that for the rest of my life I will have nights like this and my child will never be able to care for herself.

Then I remember how blessed I am to be her mother and how thankful I am to God that he gave me this wonderful human being, so strong and resilient.

I remember that this too shall pass and I will see what God has in store for this precious child of mine and I get to be a part of raising such an amazing person.

Bad nights are going to happen and sickness will be apart of our lives, but I will remain thankful for this blessing God has bestowed upon me and take care of her until I no longer can.


My Top 10 Avon Products

I have been selling Avon for a little over a year now, and I love it!

Avon is such a great company, they have great products, great prices and support causes such as breast cancer awareness.

I started selling Avon because I honestly love their products and wanted to share it with the world!

Here is my Top 10 favorite products everyone should have in their life!

Avon Solutions Banishing Cream Skin Discoloration Improver

If you have trouble with skin discoloration, this product is a must. My face had blotchy spots and dark spots, after using this my face is more one tone.

Avon Magix Wand Foundation Stick

Magix Wand is a great full coverage foundation. It’s light, airy and doesn’t make you feel like you have a lot of makeup on.

Avon True Color Glimmersticks

Avon glimmersticks are my absolute favorite product. They have so many options of colors and they last All day!

Magix Prime Face Perfector

I love this primer! I actually ran out and tried another primer and it did not do as well as the magix primer. A lot of primers make my face oily but not magix primer.

Avon Whitening Essentials Toothpaste Blanc Charcoal Fresh Mint

This toothpaste seriously leaves your teeth super clean and whitens at the same time!

Anew Vitamin C Brightening Serum

My face came be very dull, the Anew vitamin c serum brightens and gives my face a refreshing look.

Glimmerkiss Liquid Lipstick

I love love these!! They make your lips look full and shiny! Make sure to where it with Avon glimmerstick lip liners and get the full effect!

Avon Glimmershadow Liquid Eyeshadow

I have recently starting using the liquid eyeshadow and I have to say I love the way these glimmer shadows look!

Wash-Off Waterproof Mascara

I have tried a lot of waterproof mascara that will uphold my watery eye problem from allergies. This by far is the winner. My eyes can water and I still have mascara on. If you use the Avon makeup removers, this mascara comes off easy.

Haiku Eau de Parfum

This is my favorite Avon fragrance! I actually ordered this before I became a representative. It smells so fresh!

These are just my top 10, there is so much more wonderful products to try!
