Family photos and good hair days

Family photos this morning. Thanking God for sunshine and Tawn and the beautiful leaves clinging to the trees for one more week.

Family photos on a normal year are pressure enough. Today, with cancer hanging over my every emotion, even more pressure. Is my hair okay? Is this the last time we will see it like this? Am I okay with that? Is it okay to be okay? No rules on how a person handles a game changer diagnosis like this. Having a good hair day. Thinking of eyelashes with a grateful heart each time I add another layer of mascara to make those blondies stand out. Trying to be appreciative of this big mane of mine whilst the shoulder pain makes it impossible to style. Grateful and cursing in the same breath. So glad God loves me even so.


  1. Honey, you will always stand out, you're just that kind of girl. Enjoy your day! (And you look gorgeous by the way!)
