During our Head Shaving Party last month, Lucy and Bayla provided each guest with strips of white electrical tape and the opportunity to mark and share the stories of their scars – powerful evidence for our young daughters that each life includes a share of scrapes; that we heal and grow and life goes on.
We hoped to put in perspective the seven inches of scars I’ve added to my collection since this challenge began, the looming possibilities of bilateral mastectomy and ovariectomy, and the great unknown beyond.
It was a fun mixer for Luba and it made for some good photos. But looking back, today, I am rocked by the resilience of our two guests to the right. The tape fails to show that both Bob and Jamie have lost brothers.
Jamie celebrates the life of his brother, David, today.
Wishing healing and strength for both friends and their families.
