It was years ago, but seems like just yesterday, we were looking at hats for the first time. You didn’t know it my love, but I was willing to buy 10 hats, to do anything – to pay any amount of money – to make you feel beautiful again. You’ve always been beautiful, but I wanted you to feel that way.
Wigs were not what I wanted, but I didn’t say anything. I was so glad when you decided not to go that route. I wanted you, not a fake you, with someone else’s hair. I couldn’t say it then but I can now.
I was sad that day, but in a way, hopeful. You know about the sadness, but it was as if, we were moving towards normal, whatever that means. And I knew for sure, it was the beginning…… of restoration.
