Hair Today; Gone Tomorrow!

My son ended up cutting my hair! I can't believe all the changes Grizelda has brought into my life!


I tried not to cry, but I really am ugly! But I will be a healthy ugly, and I will save a lot of time!


Carl and Josh both shaved their heads as a show of love! Who'd ever have thought I'd share a hairstyle with the men in my life!


I did find a silver lining! (It is amazing. . .there ALWAYS is one!) I thought that when I woke up and saw myself after my "haircut" I'd cry, but I broke out laughing. Then I found that without hair the shower spurting on my head is a delightfully different feeling. It was like getting a message! So relaxing!!!

And the great big silver lining in all of this is my family. My children, my husband, my children-in-law have all been absolutely amazing. Before the haircut, we went to the temple with those who are here already and then my husband, assisted by sons-in-law who were here, my son, my bishop, our life-long friend, and my home teacher, gave me a beautiful blessing.

There are no words to express how wonderful my large, chaotic family is. I love them more than I can begin to express. They are taking good care of me!

I agree with all the other comments. You have the PERFECT shaped head for this new hair style. That's cool about the massage from the shower. :) And what a wonderful thing to be able to receive a blessing from the Priesthood holders you love.

Sherrie,
I am so grateful everything turned out ok. I hope the recovery process will be quick. You certainly have a lot of friends and family praying for you. Through all our adversities, Christ does make every thing right.
