I love looking for furniture that has had their better days and now need a "facelift"....I started this "hobby" quite by accident and have found that I.LOVE.IT. People are actually buying this furniture ~ WOW. If you have something that you have made YOUNIQUE ~ pls send me a picture so I can post it ~ I really would love to hear from YOU!
I can't believe its been 9 months since I have blogged about my business or my life. Last year, specifically on April 5, 2011, my husband suffered a severe stroke. I will remember that day the rest of my life. It was a Tuesday morning and my husband didn't feel well. I made a dr. appt. for him and we were scheduled to be there at 3:00 p.m. At about noon, I noticed his eyes were going back and forth and I knew something was wrong. I decided to take him to the emergency room. When we arrived there, my husband could no longer walk and I had to get a wheelchair to take him in; he was taken into triage; I told the nurse he had experienced a stroke the prior year and also advised her of his other health issues, diabetes and high blood pressure. He was taken to the back and we waited 12 hours before any tests were administered....this was NOT a county hospital; it was a well known hospital and my husband had excellent insurance (Blue Cross/Blue Shield). Needless to say, my husband had suffered a severe stroke. This entire previous year, since April, 2011 has been a challenge for him. He not only is now confined to a wheelchair and completely paralyzed on the right side, unable to communicate clearly but recently had his right leg amputated due to an infection (he is a diabetic).
Through all of this, I have never given up on him nor my business. I knew that someday I would come back strong and that my followers would be here. In addition, despite everything my husband has gone through, he still has a great sense of humor ~ he tried to put on his prostetic leg himself and said "I don't know if I'm coming or going.
My husband, Jody,
This 2012 year, I am asking our God to keep my husband well and also thanking him for giving us the strength to get us through all we have been through. Younique727 will continue to refinish furniture as this is a love that will never go away......
Thank you ALL for your continued support and for believing in my return.
