What a crazy, perfect stay at home and do laundry kinda day it was! Unfortunately for me, I didn’t have the option of laundry. lol It was chemo day and off my FIL and I went to Toronto… in some serious downpour! The ride back was much more unpleasant as there was many a time I couldn’t see at all in front of me. We made it home ok, though.
Today while at the hospital, I had no attention or ability to read. There were a lot of people… really sick, seemed even more so today. I mean, who IS the face of cancer? If there was a cut-out, the scary thing is anyone of us can pop into the cut out. Sadly, cancer has no favorites. It just picks and then begins its destruction.
I saw this lady, older, with her hair shaved off. She seemed to be a warrior – and her bald head was her battle scar. I was thinking of how beautiful bald is. What strength there as they walk with their naked scalp. I saw another lady, older, white hair… just bits of hair growing back. Beautiful! I won’t lie, I was so tempted to ask if I could take a picture with her… ( then that voice came through, loud and clear… WWSS? You know, What Would Sanj Say)? So I didn’t … but I won’t forget her face, as their was such strength in her eyes. Bald is Beautiful.
