An Update and a Challenge

So I figured that you guys might be wondering how my hair is growing. Well here is a photo from Wed. A friend of mine gave me a little tiny curling iron- and I have been able to curl my flares- over my ears- so that they feather back and then I spray them with hair spray. Today it has been a little drizzly so the flares have kicked back up... oh well. At least it has cooled off. It was like 101 on Wed., upper 80's yesterday, and then today - I woke up to 72 degree temperatures. It is now 65 degrees at 5:15pm. I have had the house opened up all day enjoying the cool breeze. I love this kind of weather. I was so ready for it to get here!! 
Don't be fooled by the photo - my hair is still only about 2 inches long. In real life you could see that a lot of the hair on top is sticking up still.

I was nominated to take part in the Gratitude Challenge. And I decided to share my list here on my blog as well. It is good for us to focus on what we are thankful for. I know that many times people do a thankful list throughout November for Thanksgiving. I have never taken part in that one. But when I was nominated for this challenge I decided to take part. So without further to do - here is my first days list:

 Day 1:
1. I am so thankful for a great husband who has been so supportive of me, especially over the last year. Who was willing to shave my head when needed, even though it was hard on him to do. And who followed by shaving his own head. Who has helped me find humor during this "adventure".

2. I am so thankful for our two sons. (Many women who have endometrial cancer, find out before they have kids... and never have the blessing of having children of their own.) They have been so supportive and helpful as well. A real blessing! 

 3. Although I've been sick this week, I am thankful that God helped keep me well during my chemo, when my immune system was at its lowest and it would have been dangerous for me to get sick.

I am nominating anyone who would like to participate- and especially those of you who don't feel like you have much to be thankful- trust me - once you start writing the things down - you will realize you have ALOT more to be thankful for than you realize!


  1. Beautiful list. You are definitely surrounded by love and held in God's hands. I am thankful that you are doing well and look gorgeous. :)

  2. Your hair looks lovely - and your smile shows your joy and says it all. Andrina X

  3. Your hair is really growing and look beautiful! Lovely list... we have so much to be grateful for! Hugs to you.


Hello~ I love getting your comments. I have made a few changes to make things a little easier for you and hoping a more enjoyable experience for both you and I. Have a blessed day! :o)
