A Little Perspective in my life....

My friend Joanne of 'Snippets and Scraps of My Mind' sent me this today.  Don't know who wrote it or where to get permission to use it, but if it's flying around as an inspirational email, I guess it's meant to be shared.

This is the answer to the lament over my hair loss!!!


There once was a woman who woke up one morning, looked in the mirror, and noticed she had only three hairs on her head.
'Well,' she said, 'I think I'll braid my hair today.'
So she did and she had a wonderful day.

The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and saw that she had only two hairs on her head.
'H-M-M,' she said, 'I think I'll part my hair down the middle today.'
So she did and she had a grand day.

The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed
that she had only one hair on her head.
'Well,' she said, 'today I'm going to wear my hair in a pony tail.'
So she did, and she had a fun, fun day.

The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and
noticed that there wasn't a single hair on her head.

'YAY!' she exclaimed. 'I don't have to fix my hair today!'

Attitude is everything.

Thanks, Joanne!  I needed that!!!


  1. Loved the message in that email - we have to remember too much hair or no hair or too fat or too thin whatever our problems are - we need to make the best of it and have a WONDERFUL DAY!

  2. That is a lovely message. We all need a reminder once in awhile.

  3. What a wonderful message for all of us that grow older and lose our hair. Thanks Joanne and Pat for sharing the message. Who cares, its what we are on the inside that counts and Pat you are a beautiful woman!

  4. I echo Doris' comment! I need constant reminders to adjust my attitude! One person's bad hair day is another's person's wildest dream! It should apply to other areas in life as well! Thanks Pat and Joanne!

  5. Thanks for sharing this piece of wisdom Pat. I think that you are a very beautiful woman Pat and I have never met you in person but I like how you treat those who cross your path on this blogging journey.

    If God know and can count every hair on our head or lack of hair and still loves us the way we are then we too should all love you. HUGS JB

  7. Hi Pat
    Not sure how much hair you have lost but I always thought that if I started to lose my hair I would try to grow it long and sweep it all up top in a chignon. Of course the best a laid plans and all that, but its one solution. I have a good friend with the same problem and I know how distressing it can be through discussing it with her, she did buy a wig and it looked lovely but found it very hot and uncomfortable.
    The little ditty says it all really, we have to be positive,not only with hair but all the other nuisances us ladies have to put up with. lol

  8. LOL! Yes, it's all in the perspective!

  9. I love it! So true Joanne whether it be a weight issue, hair issue, no clean clothes to wear that day...its what you make of it. Our inner beauty and confidence always shows through more than the outside!!

  10. I got that one too! Believe me, after chemo every hair and every day is important! Never take advantage of either!
    xo, Sheri

  11. Love it!!!!! What a wonderful message!
