Mother’s Day Contest Winner

I advise you to get some kleenex before reading this beautiful and touching letter from Whitney Homer about her mother.

My mother, Lisa Homer, has 4 children.
I have known about this contest for 3 days. Each time I’m about to submit my entry, I delete it, because I can’t get it quite right. Because in all honesty, how would you describe the beautiful sounds of a symphony to a deaf person?
That is how I feel about my mom. There are no words to describe how much she means to me, and how wonderful she truly is.
4 years ago, she was just my mom. We did mother daughter things, she did my laundry, we joked around, and she helped me with homework.
4 years ago my life changed. For the worse.
It started out with flu like symptoms and I figured I would get better, but I was wrong. As things progressively got worse, doctors knew something was up. I was losing weight, in so much pain, losing hair, and everything else you can imagine. This is when I realized my mom was more than just a mom. As we headed to my first bone marrow biospy, I remember her turning to me as we pulled into the parking lot and saying, “Everything will be okay whitney. I’ll always be here for you.”
The bone marrow biospy showed abnormalities but no cancer. However, I got sicker. More problems arised and things got worse. Doctors appointments, er trips, testing, surgeries, procedures, trips to the mayo clinic…You name it, she was there for me. My mom became my best friend. She would stay up till 3 or 4 oclock in the morning, crying with me. Holding my hand when things got really bad. I spent my senior prom in the er with her. 5 months of chemotherapy and she never left my side.
Even though I continue to get sicker, and still remain undiagnosed, my mom has not abandoned me. She has dedicated her entire life to taking care of me. Changing my feeding tube bags, administering shots, driving to appointments and a million of other things I now require because of all my illnesses.
I’m sure she didn’t imagine her life like this, she doesn’t deserve to be taking care of her adult daughter. But she does without skipping a beat, everyday.
She continues to make me smile and laugh through the pain. She gets me out of the house to remind me there is life beyond these walls. She takes care of my medical issues, while maintaining her household, and caring for 3 other children. I can honestly say if I was capable of going out and partying, I would rather hang out with my mom. Without her, I don’t know where I would be in this huge mess. She has kept me sane, always giving me hope that my situation will get better..Maybe not today, but someday.
I will forever be grateful for what she has done for me.
She has saved my life.

you can read more about Whitney on her blog. She is incredibly strong and inspiring.
It is obvious to me that beauty (insidle and out) runs in this family.
Lisa was so kind and was an absolute pleasure to be around.
You know when you can just feel someones warmth?
I don’t just say this about anyone because it’s a rare quality. And to me, one of the best qualities to have. Anyway, she had it.
Her hair had NEVER been dyed before but she was open to anything we wanted to do!

(that’s Lisa and my good friend slash talented hair dresser, Latisha, who came in on HER DAY OFF to do this!)
So Latisha dyed it a rich auburn color and put some wispy layers in it.
I applied some natural looking makeup, focusing mainly on those crazy gorgeous green eyes.
And THIS is the result.

True Beauty.

    This is beautiful! What a great story. This woman doesn’t look old enough to have adult children!

    What make up did you use for this look? I would love to know! And what’s the white thing on her neck in the first picture?
