Perspective

I was just running the bath and enjoying my second glass of wine last night when mom rang me as promised to fill me in on her blood counts etc. in preparation for her 2nd round of chemo today.  She was telling me how wonderful all the health care professionals have been (and continue to be) when she mentioned almost casually that she went and had her hair all buzzed off, since it was starting to fall out.  Mom has such a great attitude about all of this and the fact that we can smile and laugh with her about her experiences makes me feel a complete wally for being so agitated yesterday over work.  It was just a bad day, and compared to what my mom is going through, is easily gotten over.  (I won't even touch on what some of my friends and fellow bloggers have been going through with sick children, etc. - at least I can have a quiet night at home if I so chose)

Today is a new day and has gone much smoother than yesterday.  I enjoyed sitting in my bright, new office while I sorted out most of the problems from yesterday.   Tonight I'm meeting up with Beryl as she has her granddaughter Anne visiting from Ireland and would like me to particpate in the evenings activities. 

I do fear that more wine might be on the agenda - it usually is when Ber and I get together :)

I think she looks beautiful.

It looks so natural, just like she would normally wear her hair. I love your mom so much. :)
