I know we are all struggling with this heartbreaking tragedy but one thing I was reminded of by reading Tanita’s post, which came moments after I was ready to post my own scarf update was — perspective.
And now when I re-read the following post, it seems quite insignificant to me.
Thank you for the feedback on my scarves. Last Wednesday was my second chemo session and as the doctors informed me (from the beginning), the chemo WILL take my hair out. You always have some hope that you will beat the odds and be the exception to their rule but from Wednesday until today, the hair came OUT! OUT! OUT! And boy was that tough. There’s no preparation for it either. Thankfully, I am feeling pretty well, using brisk morning walks as medicine. Under normal circumstances, reading would allow me to escape from the madness; but chemotherapy is forcing me to keep my focus on me. I’ve cheated though. I’ve outsmarted chemotherapy by looking for ways to fill my info-maven-bug. Before I share ‘what-I’m-taking-in’, here’s my next Summer Scarf Lemonade Stand#3 – which happens to be my mom’s favorite. What do you think? I like the scarf but it’s a little too vintage for this summer heat, yes? This one reminds me of my late grandmother’s curtains she used to hang during the holidays.
