Yesterday evening I learned that Desitin is not just for diaper rash.

If you're around my age you remember the Tupperware steamer in Harvest Gold that separates in 3 pieces. (has probably been recalled)

I love using it to steam my fresh vegetables in the microwave and never have I had an accident with the boiling water, but last night when I pulled it out of the microwave I tried to avoid falling over two of the dogs waiting behind me in hopes of a green bean dropping. I lost my balance and tilted the steamer just enough to have the boiling water land on my right hand.

This morning my hand is swollen but I have no blistering and just a little pain on a couple of fingers.

Thank God for google and the ex waitress that guaranteed Desitin would work.

      If you decide to use your steamer again be careful. I'm still using mine, but I did go on the Tupperware website to check out the new and improved ( safer) ones.

I was drawn to the smiles on their faces and the love in their eyes. They met, accepted each other, and acted as if they had been lifelong friends. Oh, how I had forgotten about the innocence of a child. The color of skin, the size of a body, the structure of a face does not matter. They are ready to accept and love unconditionally until we and society teach them differently.

There was nothing but smiles and laughter as they danced, made beaded jewelry, and ate. They made sure that they all were a part of whatever they were participating in. They cared about each other's feelings and made sure that everyone was having fun and was happy. Why is it that we grow to become so obsessed with appearance and behavior of others that we miss seeing the light or the struggles in others?  We're so quick to judge b…
