Day 2130: Faces Waxes, Suffering and a Beautiful Reminder

Our past suffering is a reference point and a reminder that we can get through almost anything – that’s what I keep realizing.


It’s 12 : 09 PM on day 2130 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Deuteronomy 30:19, learn one new thing – Limited regeneration of limbs occurs in most fishes and salamanders, and tail regeneration takes place in larval frogs and toads (but not adults). The whole limb of a Salamander or a Triton will grow again and again after amputation. In reptiles, Chelonians, crocodiles and snakes are unable to regenerate lost parts. –  have breakfast and work on my  25 Smiles Campaign    – yesterday Maddie donated $20 (thanks so much Maddie your ongoing support means a lot 🙂 ) which brings the total raised to $6 990 only  $5 510 more to raise to reach my second goal of raising $12 500 for Smile Train before Jan 10 2017 (SO SO SO GRATEFUL to everyone who has supported this campaign so far 🙂 ).


Yesterday while I was getting my face waxed the aesthetician kept apologizing (for causing me pain) and I said this is nothing compared to my back operation I use my past suffering as a reference point and a reminder that I can get through almost anything.
