Making My Daughter’s Prom Day Perfect

My daughter is 17 years old and is in her senior year in high school. Sheis a top-notch student who has consistently remained on the honor roll throughout all of her years in school. Last year we lost my husband, her father, to cancer. Despite this tragedy, she has struggled but stayed on top of her studies and is doing well. Her senior prom is quickly approaching and I wanted to do something special for her and decided to hire a mobile airbrush makeup artist for prom night. I know she will be excited and hopefully, it will distract her from the pain of her father not being there to share in this day.

A friend of mine recently used a makeup artist for her wedding and she looked amazing. This is the artist I want for my daughter. I called my friend and got the contact information and made a call to the beauty professional to schedule the appointment. I knew my daughter was going to be beyond ecstatic when I planned on telling her about it that evening at dinner. And I was right. I gave her a nice card with all of the details inside. She screamed with excitement when she opened and read it. It melted my heart.

Prom day finally arrived and it was time to start getting ready. The makeup artist was phenomenal and did an amazing job with her makeup. She was absolutely breathtaking and I tried to hold back my tears but couldn’t. We all gathered around for the customary family pictures with my daughter and her date. She even had her picture taken while she was holding a photo of her dad to her heart. I know that was very difficult for her but know that her Dad was with her in spirit.
