Thank you for sharing this story. I thought it was going to be funny, but instead it was poignant. Nicely done.
Aww, I too thought it might be a more humorous story. When my best friend lost her hair to chemo, she insisted she did not want me to shave my head, so I did not (I would have). All I could do was dye it pink and ask people for prayers. It's amazing how these trying times can bring about such stories of faith and hope.
You managed to bring a little humor into a somber period in your life. It was tastefully and poignantly told, and I thank you for sharing this with us.

I pray all is well with your son and family.

God bless you all~
What a precious story. Both sons have obviously been brought up to be caring, sensitive, godly young men and I applaud their mother for providing that warm, nurturing environment. I LOVE this portrayal of a Christian family at its finest.
In this touching remembrance, I cannot help but think how your older son showed the meaning of "brother." I hope only for good for the young men in your care. God has gifted you as a mother and a writer.
I remember both of these events. What fine young men you have, and it's great to see that they are close. In life, it's the relationships (with God and with each other) that matter. You've illustrated that well here.
I also thought this would be humorous, but it's great that you could laugh through the tears. Thank you for sharing your poignant story.
This is a powerful story and has many different messages. I think that's true talent when the author can write in such a way that the Holy Spirit will be able to touch so many people in so many ways. Congratulations on your EC. Happy Dance!
