I was sitting on my back porch looking out over the fields and feeling sorry for myself over my hair loss again when I started thinking, I could sit here and feel sorry for myself or I could start thinking of all the good things in my life that I should be thankful for.
I decided to think of the good things in my life.
Yes, I am losing the hair and it is gone for good but my reasons for losing my hair are not the same as someone who is losing theirs because of cancer treatments. Wigs and hats can take care of my problem.
Maybe i can't take long walks in the woods like I once loved to do but I can walk and that is more then some can do.
I can sit and look across the field of grass which is turning brown and see the lovely fall colors that fill the landscape now. I can watch the deer weave in and out of the woods and a red fox dashing across the field. If I am lucky, a black bear. There are people who see nothing but blackness on their canvas but I can see lovely colors and all the glorious things our creator has made for us to enjoy. I am blessed.
I am also blessed with a great husband and a wonderful family.
Each time I get to feeling down, I am going to start thinking of all the good things in my life and I bet the good things will win out. *s*
