Pink Hair Day

Today is what is known in my RL family as a pink hair day. Last summer my sister was diagnosed with a rare blood disorder and she had a bone marrow transplant last spring. She knew she would lose all her hair, so she decided that before she started chemo, she'd dye her hair hot pink. Since the first pink hair day, it's come to symbolize to her, and those who know her, that pink hair days are days to try something new to help you have the courage to get through hard times.

She's having a hard time in her recovery right now. I'm not ready to go into details, but I'm finally ready to admit it. I know I don't talk about this part of my life much, but it's all I have on my mind right now. I'm not going to be in Second Life today to give you a cute look, or inventory tips. I promise I'll deliver that next week!

Today I'd like to issue a different challenge. Find something today to do that cheers someone else or that stretches you. Apologize to a friend who you've had a falling out with, go somewhere new and IM the owner telling them you enjoyed it, IM a friend and just say I care about you, Call a family member or friend, or be nice to someone you'd rather snap at.

Today is a Pink Hair Day. Make it worth it. :)

Love,
Lishi

PS: For those of you who really want to keep going with inventory... look at your lost and found folder... :)
