anyone can say they care but not everyone can prove it.

Unexpected things happen. Like the time my mouth started hurting. A lot. One minute everything was fine and the next I was experiencing severe sharp pains. It was so bad that I couldn't sleep at night, I had difficulty getting through work, and my focus was totally off. I called my dentist and ended up going in for an emergency root canal. Joy! Needless to say, the last couple of weeks have been interesting. Part one and two of said root canal have caused me an awful lot of pain and suffering. Not to mention a massive medical bill.

Thankfully, my fiance has been absolutely wonderful. When the pain started, he made me this super sweet survival kit. It was full of things to help me get through the dental visit. It included practical items like Tylenol and an ice pack, fun things like Archie comics and a magazine with Khloe Kardashian on the cover, and cute things like a lip shaped pillow and a Katy Perry perfume. I felt so spoiled - but super grateful. His thoughtfulness made it all seem a little bit better.

Since I am currently recovering from part two of the root canal....I thought that I would show you all the survival kit!

Tooth pain? Not so great. Knowing my fiance is always there to make things better? Priceless. Lately I have been focused on removing negative people and negative emotions from my life. His gesture re-affirmed why I need to continue this. Caring and loving people? They matter. Everyone else is a waste of precious time and energy.

Who takes care of you when you aren't feeling well? What do you think of this survival kit?
