The Color Purple

If you have found yourself redirected here in search of Oprah, I am sad to say you have been guided to the wrong place.

However, if you see her, please tell her I say hello and am in need of a new car!

This Saturday was National Purple Day.

What in the world is Purple Day?

Well, it just so happens to be a wonderful day full of celebrating and raising awareness for those heroes fighting the beast we know as Epilepsy.

This was our first experience with Purple Day.  We rushed to put something together.  Though it was not all fireworks, we had a good turnout.

Purple cupcakes....

Purple juice....

Purple wristbands....

Purple ribbons....

Purple painted t-shirts....

And a very symbolic release of purple balloons.

Our first celebration of Purple Day rocked!!!

Matthew even got to have some serious discussions with his new buddy, Layne!

Thank you to all who helped us celebrate Purple Day this year. 

Maybe next year Oprah will show up!!


  1. So cool! What a great way to spend the day...I'll call you have her number?

  2. I don’t want people to feel sorry for me, that’s not why I am writing this post. My child six years ago, was born with Bi-lateral closed lip schizepcephaly, which is even more unique than the regular cases. Due to this disability, she also developed Cerebral Palsy affecting the left side of her body. We’ve learned the part of her brain which has been affected has also impaired her ability to reason. We’ve been lucky so far though it affects everyone differently and she had been on the very mild side of everything. Another thing we had to dealt with much are seizures. She was highly prone to having one or multiples and we’ve seemed to look out with some petite mals when she was younger and they occurred in her sleep more than any other time.
    Luckily, everything seemed to be okay after she took an Herbal Medicine. I wish I could say that’s the end of it because she havn't had any symptoms since then.
    Having a child with special needs is difficult. You sit living in fear of the reality your child may face, never really knowing what will happen until it does. Do not expose yourself to more danger, use a herbal remedy that is safe and effective. If interested contact him: to find out more information about the disorder and treatment.
