Random Homeless Guy

As we were running errands today we ran into a homeless man.  He asked for some coins to buy some coffee.  Usually I give people like that a granola bar, but today I had a few coins that I could share. I got them out and the homeless guy said, "Thank you. I will pray for you that those blemishes on your face will disappear."  At first I was completely shocked and embarrassed, but then I thought about it just a tad and I thought, I guess I can always use another person praying for me--and for my blemishes specifically may be nice. :)  Not bad for 65 cents.

Now I think it is hilarious and a little sweet and mortifying all at the same time.

My friend Omayma took this picture.  R's face describes my initial reaction to that comment

Thanks homeless guy--I think. Now to set an appointment for the dermatologist, again.

That's awesome. But just in case his long-distance-energy-healing isn't spot-on, I have an awesome cure for the blemishes. They have been the thief of my self-esteem for most of my life and last year I came across a wash that took care of about 90% of the problem. (which means I still have the occasional blemish or two.) It's an online order: Carley's Clear and Smooth Skin Treatment Acne Treatment and Natural Soap Bar (you only need one of each). Go to:

*Word to the wise: Stop using your other facial cleansers a few days before you start the new regiment, or the clash of chemicals can cause your skin to get WORSE.

Love you much! Hope it works for you as it did for me!
