“In all of living, have much fun and laughter. Life is to be enjoyed, not just endured.” -Gordon B. Hinckley
I feel that a good cry is cleansing for the soul, trust me I have had my fair share over the past couple of months. But I also feel that after a good cry it’s time to pick up the pieces and move on with life! This past week when my hair started falling out by the handfuls we shed some needed tears as a family. After we were able to move past the hard part of it and grasp our new normal, we pulled out the Halloween wigs and played “who wore it best?” Just think, I will be able to get ready in 10 minutes flat with no hair to wash or shave.... it’s a win win!! 😉
Trials are not easy nor are they often asked for, but it is the only way to learn and grow in ways we never thought possible. My dad would always tell me, “If you don’t laugh you will cry, and I have tried that crying stuff and I don’t like it too much.” Dad always made us laugh, even in his final days here on this earth.
What we see and where we go in life depends on our attitude. I pray that I can always find the positive in situations and make the best of what I have been given. My family has been amazing support for me through out every aspect of the this trial. We have laughed and cried and held each other tight. I will be forever grateful for all of the love and support from so many people! Now bring on the head-wraps and wigs because I still have some living to do! #chooseyorhard #johnsontough #masonstrong
