Little Blue Boo

Have you met this beautiful lady?  I hadn't until today, and thanks to Emily over at Jones Design Company , I want to be her friend!  Let me introduce you toAshley. She writes over at Lil Blue Boo and has a line of whimsical, ruffly clothes for girls.  Ashley is truly beautiful inside and out. Earlier this year, after having a miscarriage she and her husband tried to get pregnant again. Her pregnancy resulted in a rare form of cancer called Choriocarcinoma. This cancer spreads quickly, and her case has followed suit.  She is fighting it, living joyfully and gracefully in spite of the ways it has challenged her faith and impacted her family.
A few weeks ago, she shaved her head. All that beautiful long blonde hair is gone. The video is of her shaving her head and all the love involved. You should watch it right this very second.  It will absolutely make you cry.  And if it doesn't, check yourself!

How would you react to shaving your head?  Can you believe Ashley's mom shaved her head in support.  I totally want to be that type of mom.  The fact that she seems so stinking calm through the whole thing blew me out of the water.  No tears, just peace.  What strength she has.

If you feel so called to donate to Ashley and her family for all the mounding medical bills you can do so here.

Makes me feel kind of silly and vain about feeling crappy about a bad haircut!  Good thing there is grace!
