Getting Used to the Looks by JONAS

Today we decided to get out of the house and walk around a shopping area.  Becky is still hunting for scarfs and head coverings.  I personally think that she is gorgeous without her hair.  She is still getting used to the idea.  She has it in her head that people will feel uncomfortable if she decides to go in public without some kind of a covering.  If you've known me for more than 3 seconds then you'll know that I don't give much weight to what people think of me.  LOL  Today I convinced Bec to go without a head covering to see how she could handle it.  She, of course, looked stunning!  I guess I was thinking that this would be a good thing to help her get over her fear of that.  (I should leave the therapy up to Dr. Phil)  She did get plenty of looks.  Some where curious.  Other's were straight up confused.  And still others were sweet smiling faces that said, "we get it and we're proud of you."  Every day I'm growing in my respect and pride for my wife.  I'm so proud to have found her, and that God would have her love me.

UPDATE:  We will be heading to the hospital tomorrow for Bec to get her "port" put in.  This will allow the Dr's to draw blood without having to stick Becky every time.  On Wed. she'll go in for her 2nd chemo session.  I asked her tonight if she was ready for it.  She responded with YES.  This is how we get this done.  The 2nd session means we're one more closer to the end.  I agree.  Pray that she'll maintain some sense of physical strength.  Her parents will be flying in from California on Sat. morning.  We're praying that Bec will have energy enough to enjoy her time while they're here.  Thanks for your continued prayer and support.  It means so much.
