Better than she was before… Better, Stronger, Happier. A Breast Cancer Journal

They Make Me Feel Dressier**

I never would have guessed I’d miss my Groucho Marx eye brows.

Even after I’d lost them, I would have laughed right out loud at the thought of coaxing them back.

But, tonight I did just that.

I googled growing eye brows and then slathered mine in coconut oil.

We’re hard on ourselves. It fuels the economy. But after years of berating my body, my features, my traits, it feels good to know that I’d rather be me.

With or without the caterpillar brows.

    Andrea, I don’t know how you appear to yourself, but your hair-style, eyebrows, glasses were all unique and “trademark” Andrea, and very beautiful too. Hoping the ‘caterpillar’ eyebrows grow back soon.
