Hair Today….Gone Tomorrow

Well, today was a busy day for Melanie.  She had her radiation treatment this morning at 9:15 and when she came home from that she was welcomed by a wonderful sign with balloons in the yard that was put up by the Weeks.  Pretty cool!

The Young Women sent over a really neat booklet they made for Mel that had all kinds of inspirational quotes and scriptural references……really creative.

She then decided to be proactive and take care of her hair situation on her own terms.  Bald is beautiful….or at least in this case……really, really short is beautiful and she wears it well.

Here’s some pics to commemorate the situation….I hope you enjoy them.

All in all, Mel thinks it was a pretty beautiful day and is so grateful to everyone that made it special.  She can completely feel everyone’s love and faith….know that it makes her feel stronger…thank you, thank you, thank you!  She loves you all!

“I do not think we know our own strength until we have seen how strong love makes us.”

    Dear Melanie,
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you continually. We love you and your family!
    You look absolutely amazing with short hair, but that’s to be expected with such a gorgeous face! In the words of Hannah when she was about 10, “I may be small, but I am strong!” You have always had amazing strength – on the inside and on the outside! Stay tough girl!!! Love, Ann

    Your short hair cut is absolutely beautiful on you!!! My prayers and thoughts are with you and your wonderful family. You’re such an amazing mommy and friend to everyone in your life. I don’t know how many times you made all of us girls lunch during school but it was a lot, and they were some of my favorite memories of high school. Thanks for everything you do. Stay strong and know that you have so many people behind you.

    With so much love, Hannah
