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.
