Peach of a Smile
There is nothing like the power of a smile. Smiling is a very natural response that shares our happiness with others. Have you ever found that smiling is an awesome feeling? Go ahead, smile now. Doesn't it feel natural? Makes you feel bless to be alive? Well, there are children who are unable to smile. Not because they don’t desire to smile. However, a birth defect commonly known as Orofacial cleft prevents them from smiling.
My interest was peeped during a vulnerable time in May 2014. I became ill with Bell Palsy, Shingles, severe inner ear infection and Vertigo. I was unable to work for over a month. During that time, I was unable to smile, speak clearly and eat properly because of paralysis on my left side. My main focus at that time was to be healed completely and to regain my beautiful smile again. Though, patience has its way of teaching us it’s not about us. While sulking about my smile, God allowed me to see others through a television program with no ability to smile on their own. My belief is rather than looking to government and others for all of the answers, I must take a stand to help others in need by giving of my time and myself. Will you join me in making a difference in the lives of the young patients at Children’s of Alabama.
