Vintage Bounty..................

I haven't gone to the beauty parlor since last August.  At that point I had my beautician give me a few highlights and a trim.  My hair has gotten quite long by now and as of this morning was sporting a number of split ends.  Torn between "hey, it's all going to fall out anyway" and wanting to feel good about what I see in the mirror right now, I found myself walking into a Bo Rics today.  I thought a rather inexpensive trim might serve as a good compromise for the time being.  I didn't want to get highlights as I'm worried about further damaging my hair before the chemo onslaught. 

Another reason for going to an unfamiliar place was that I didn't want to have to go through the whole story again with yet another acquaintance. As the lady cutting my hair went about her business, she began telling me about all of the specials they have coming up on highlights and conditioning.  Clearly she thought (and rightfully so) that my hair is in need of far more than just a trim :)  I finally had to explain to her why I wasn't going to be needing any more treatments in the near future thus defeating the whole purpose for my going there in the first place.

 But life is funny and God moves in mysterious ways.  The lady cutting my hair was quiet for a minute and then she began telling me that she had a cancer scare  herself a year ago.  She regrets having told anyone about it, because she noticed that people began treating her differently once she revealed her diagnosis.  The thing is, I've noticed the same thing.  There are people I've heard from and there are people that have avoided contacting me.  I'm sure it's a matter of not knowing what to say. 

There is no doubt that the people in my life care about what happens to me.  I don't want to feel isolated though.  I usually work these things out by myself. But it's different this time.  I need human contact in order to feel as though I'm still a part of the human race. I just know that I'm going to approach this kind of news about my loved ones and friends differently in the future having experienced it first hand.  When I've recovered......................

And that my love is where you can share and help those who don't know what to say. No one can say, I understand because how can they unless they have gone through the exact same thing. Or I'm sorry yes I am sure they are sorry but they didn't give it to you so how can they truly be sorry? Or..... I could go on and on and on....
But when you are all done you can truly say..... I understand because I HAVE been through this and truly know what to say. YOu will be able to help those of us whom haven't gone through it know what to say.
Since I haven't been through it I will say again what I said earlier... I am always here for you.... before, now, and later. Always have been always will be. That I think is what everyone needs to say!!!!
Let us shut up and let you be able to just talk. But then again....... I am the one that will say.... cheer up kid get busy creating because look what is in store for you!! Look what you have to look forward too and look at where you were. Damn I remember when the studio burnt down, or when your youngest son moved away. I just let you talk. I let you get it off your shoulders. Then I said okay times up no more pitty party let's fix this.
Well, you take all the time you need but know this. There will be a time when I say .... TIMES UP now let's get busy and let's put this damn thing behind us. I will say this...... when that hair starts coming back.... don't color it, don't tame it.... Just be YOU.
YOU are what is truly beautiful, you are what we love... it isn't your hair, your figure, your nails, nope it is you we love.
So............... for those who don't know what to say.
Just say " tell me what you need I am here"
so off my soap box. I am in Boston looking for super cool stuff for our Paris swap. You got an extension but you didn't get a pardon. ;0) love V

When very effort that is made to save your married life fails, a marriage therapist
is the best person who can sort out the differences and bring
life back to the crumbling relationship. You
got to get hold of the best professional therapist in town who can help you to fine tune and
perfect your personality traits and bolster your confidence level
to new high. He told me that occupational therapist
suggested him to choose ergonomic products or
peripherals such as ergonomic keyboard,ergonomic mouse and ergonomic chair.
