I shared at the end of last year my diagnosis with #alopecia. It’s a journey I said I would share more in the new year but that’s easier said then done.
See, I am still adjusting to the reality of this on a daily basis. While I am choosing to focus on the blessings + not the negative. Sometimes the imperfections are very apparent which can make positivity hard.
At first glance of this photo, I was so negative. I was mad at the wind. Yes, I said the wind. It felt like it purposely wanted to reveal my new found flaw, my hair or lack of. Doesn’t that just sound ridiculous?!?
It took me a day, to finally see the beauty in it. See if you look close you will see a husband who loves his wife with all he can. A man that has stood in the pain with her over the last few months. Listened, cried, held and did all he could to make the start of this new year a good one after so many in years past fell short just like these past months. A loving man that much like God is holding my hand, loving me with my flaws, and guiding me to brighter days.
We all go through rough patches and if you are going through one of your own right now know you aren’t alone. I am right there with you + remember there is always some glory + God in your midst.
“You are altogether beautiful, my darling; there is no flaw in you.” Song of Songs 4:7
If you follow my stories you know that I cannot suggest @lysaterkeurst latest book enough. I am obsessed for sure. #itsnotsupposedtobethisway It’s honestly a toolbox for dealing with the reality of life not turning out as had planned. A book we can all learn from and lean on during moments of weakness.
I look forward to sharing more of me, my flawed but flawless life with you and more in 2019.
