FINDING INSPIRATION

The Healthy Housewives with Lauren Scruggs

The Healthy Housewives with Lauren Scruggs

Inspiration comes in different forms for me everyday. Sometimes it is a quote that I read, sometimes it is an act of kindness from someone else, this week it was from watching the E True Hollywood story on Lauren Scruggs.

I had heard about Lauren Scruggs last year on the Dallas news when she had gotten in a horrbile airplane accident. After going on a flight to see the Christmas tree lights, she exited the wrong end of the airplane and walked into the propeller. She was lucky to be alive. She lost her left hand and eye. It was one of those unexpected accidents that you think that will never happen to you.

That winter I was talking to our beauty expert Shelly Mac and she said she knew the Scruggs family. She had known them for some time now and does Lauren and her mom’s beauty services. Shelly had told the Healthy Housewives that Lauren will be on a book tour and that she will be in our neck of the woods. I was excited to meet her in person since I had heard nothing but great things about her from Shelly.

This week on the E Channel they had played the Lauren Scruggs story. Interested in learning a little more about her I watched it. It was very tragic how her life changed in a blink of an eye. In just one year, she has decided to make a negative into a positive and write a book about her experience. Just watching her amazing story I was so inspired that she was so strong to keep going. It touched my heart. She is definitely a great role model for us.

The Healthy Housewives and I went to her book signing. She was absolutely beautiful and radiated positive energy. She chatted with us like she had known us forever. She had the most amazing prosthetic hand. It looked life-like and she even had ner nails painted. She was very open about her hand and when she talked to us and moved her arms, it looked very real. If you didn’t know what happened, you couldn’t tell.

She made everyone feel welcome in her presence. I found out that she is having another  book signing and talk about her path to healing. If you live in the DFW area and would like to meet Lauren in person, she will be at the Barnes and Noble across from North Park Mall this Saturday, Dec 1st at 2 pm. I encourage you too meet this beautiful person!

Check out her beautiful penmanship!
