I know someone else that had dealt with Bell’s Palsy when they were 21. It threw this person into a 2 week long depression. Paralyzing half of your face really messes with your mind! This phone shows the extent of the damage at the time. I was smiling as big as possible….that was hard to deal with. My smile was only halfway present.
The Lord answered my deepest prayer. I prayed fervently that my baby boy would see a smiling mother looking down on him – and one with a complete smile. I didn’t want his first sight of me to resemble Quasimodo. And it didn’t.
