It's all about the hair

As October rolls to a close I found this blog, Abreast in the World, from another blog on another blog and so on and so on... Well, you know the drill. This post about losing your hair to chemo I found particularly enjoyable. I especially liked the poem.

There once was a woman who woke up one morning, looked in the mirror, and noticed she had only three hairs on her head.

"Well," she said, "I think I'll braid my hair today." So she did and she had a wonderful day.

The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and saw that she had only two hairs on her head.

"Hmmm," she said, "I think I'll part my hair down the middle today." So she did and she had a grand day.

The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that she had only one hair on her head.

"Well," she said, "Today I'm going to wear my hair in a pony tail." So she did and she had a fun, fun day.

The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that there wasn't a single hair on her head.

"YEAH!" she exclaimed, "I don't have to fix my hair today!"

Attitude is everything.

Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

After today I'm setting aside my pink ribbon for some candy, pumkins and goblins in adorable costumes. After that I'm all about the season. But first things first. I only have a day and a half to teach D how to say "Trick or Treat".

Yes, good one -- it's all about the perspective.

This is so "pay it forward" and I love it. I'm so touched that you found me through someone else (and something I was talking about and sharing resonated with you) and I found you through "whymommy" who came to visit me. Breast cancer is so much about sharing, and inspiring one another. And I'm glad to have found you!
