Good bye Black Eye & Make-Up

If you read HERE, I got a black eye (accidentally, from my sweet lil' Ellie) the same day I got the news about my dad. It seemed to get worse before it got better.
I haven't really had any desire to put on my make-up these last couple weeks and the one day I tried to cover it up, for the first time....I felt like I looked worse with make-up on, and I took all the makeup off.
Because I really didn't care if people saw my black eye or not.
Finally, I noticed yesterday, that my black eye had healed. Boy, those black eyes take a  long time to go away!

Some things heal and will be never cause you pain again. Other things heal, but you will never function like you once did. My eye has healed, but my heart will never heal...not until the day I go to Heaven...and all wounds are erased and we're made perfect.

On a funny note:
Since I haven't bothered with make-up or really doing my hair- I get ready at lighting speed. My sister had asked me how long it would take me to get ready? She asked, "what do you need, like an hour?!?" "No, since I'm not doing hair or make-up, I only need about 15 minutes"- showering, shaving my legs, drying off, and getting dressed hardly takes any time at all.
I think if I was a guy- I could set records for the fastest time to get ready! ha ha ha ha

It's been nice just letting me skin breathe without a drop of make-up, just slathered in moisturizer...
and as much as I like make-up...there is something about seeing a face without make-up that sometimes looks more beautiful to me....
I looked at my sister after she had her baby, without a drop of make-up and she looked more beautiful to me than ever.

Here's so getting ready at lighting speeds and thankful my black eye took a hike, your kandee

PS. I will put make-up on again, just not today.

I'm so sorry that you're going through such a rough time. I also lost my dad and even though I was young and a lot of time has passed my heart still aches. You will get through this. Just be strong and appreciate the beauty in the rest of the world and the people who love you all around the world. You've always been so strong for all of your fans and were staying strong for you too. Grab your bible and read Revelation 21:3,4. It's so wonderful to know that God will take care of all of our heartache. PS, you look just as beautiful without makeup as you do with it on.

I'm glad to see a little humor back from you!

I lost 6 family members in a matter of 2 years. It's definitely hard to deal with and something I still struggle with everyday. I just try to see the light in everything now and remember we will be home again together eventually.

Just remember that tears are just visible memories and we should cherish every single one. :)

God will always be with you and always has a plan even when it feels like your whole world is crashing down! I love you Kandee and so do all your followers and fans!

When I saw your initial post about your loss my heart ached with you and for you. Its so devastating to lose a family member especially when it's totally unexpected. I know what you're going through. I lost my mother 5 years ago and I was so lost. Some people assume that when you lose a parent when you're grown that it is easier to deal with. That is so untrue! When my mom passed away I felt like a little kid all over again. Although you father is no longer here in the flesh, he will forever live on in your heart. To be absent from the body is to be present with God. Just know that one day you will see him again and until that day always keep his memories alive. Praying for that peace that passeth all understanding for you and your family. <3

Thank you so much for wrting the words "...my heart will never heal...not until the day I go to Heaven..."
Even in saddness, you encourage.
I went through a tough loss last month and got so tired of hearing it would be ok. I know I will carry on with my life, I'll smile, I'll laugh...but I will always hurt. That simple little phrase made me realize I don't have to feel bad about feeling bad. It's ok that part of me always will feel broken until I'm in Heaven and get that piece back. It's refreshing to know someone else sees it similar to how I do.
Although we hurt, we are so lucky. We have the best angels ever watching out for us, and when its our time, they will be there waiting with more hugs and kisses than we could ever dream of!
