Let's Talk Hair

I have had a lot of people comment on my hair lately.
We've all been excited to see it regrow...
expecting chemo curls and ending up with none.
I've always had straight hair and was really kind of looking forward to having unruly curls.
But it just wasn't meant to be.
But along with my hair, I was also lucky enough to loose my eyebrows and eyelashes. I didn't loose those until after my last round of chemo. And although they grew back rather quickly, they have become dormant again and have quit growing.
Sorry for the quality of the following picture, but it will serve it's purpose.
The eyebrow is there, but I have had to fill in with a brow brush. And the lashes are really short and straight too. They are not long enough to curl or add mascara.

It doesn't look to bad, until you look at an angle. The hairs are short and stick straight out. You can also see how the lashes stick straight out too.  
But, just like the brow brush to remedy the thin, straight brow hairs, I have a remedy for the lashes as well.
I have taught myself how to apply false eyelashes! They don't always cooperate and some days I have Lucille Ball eyes, they are better than short, stubby lashes.
My hair has come back in a pretty cute hair style all it's own. I've always liked short hair and, well, I think I kind of rock this one!!! 
But Katie did point out to me that I need to stop putting my reading glasses on the top of my head because the are leaving a hole! 
Oops! Guess this time I better listen to the kid! I have a cute eyeglass chain for my glasses but just feel like that is too old lady for me just yet!!! I'll figure out something.
I hope everyone is having a great day and remember, no matter what your journey is in your life right now, as long as you have God on your side...
Everything is going to be OK!!
Until next time,
God Bless
