Thursday was the day I had my hair chopped off. About 12 inches.  As I said in my last post I was pretty sad about it but as the appointment time got closer I felt better about it. I know I have absolutely no control over the things happening to my body right now but I do have control over my attitude, thoughts, reactions, and faith. So as my hairdresser (which is a good friend from high school) cut the ponytail off I was good with it  especially knowing I was donating it. The cut is actually growing on me now. I'm sure I'll only have it for a couple weeks before chemo starts but for now I like it. My mom cut her hair too and its super cute. 

Cutting it off...
Before & After of my Momma & I
And because I had to cut my hair my supportive hubby & younger brother Josh shaved theirs down too. They look good.  Again my support system is amazing.
Both of us :)
This is my sweet friend and hairdresser Rebecca.  A big thank you to her from coming in on her day off to cut our hair for us. 

Never let go of hope. One day you will see that it all has finally come together. What you have always wished for has finally come to be. You will look back and laugh at what has passed and you will ask yourself "How did I get through all of that?"


  1. Yeah!! I finally figured out how to do this. Won't go into all of the ways I've tried, lets just say a few!

    I feel like I am with you by reading your journey. How I would love to be there, holding yours and Nathans hands and spreading all of my love, support and faith.

    Your faith has been an inspiration to me and I'm blessed to know you. As I told Nathan in the beginning, I AM CLAIMING VICTORY OVER THIS. GOD IS GOOD......ALL THE TIME.

    Know that I love you, praying for you as well as friends and Grandma. Daily she asks how Nathans sweet wife is doing. She still says she doesn't know how he got you!!! I do, he's a wonderful boy (always will be to me).

    Love ya'll,
