I got up and took the hot cocoa and she began to tell me how her night was at work and what she was up too.. She then proceeded to tell me to get ready because she wanted to take me to get my hair and nails done. I shook my head.. And told her that I was not sure what I wanted and she laughed and told me we would figure that out when we got there.
We went to Toccoa.. Really much closer to go and she drove me in that jeep that makes me very nervous. But, she was sweet by being extra careful and trying to make sure I wouldn't get anxious.
I really didn't want to go. If anyone can see the pictures they do not lie.. I looked horrible and the allergic reaction I had to whatever it may have been, has really made me self conscious as it would anyone.
However, Katarina always tells me.. Even when I am going threw rough patches of sickness, I am still the most beautiful woman in the world. (Yes, I am sentimental and as I am rambling tears are streaming down my face.. After all.. I have not felt beautiful in a very long time).
We arrive at Modern Nails and walk in. We get settled down and yes I am feeling uncertain and not sure what I want. Katarina tells me let's go get your hair done first. We walk to Great Clips where a lady named Jessica is there and is the one that does my hair.
Katarina tells her that she wants me to have an oil treatment. Thank goodness Great Clips doesn't do perms for she wanted me to get that. So I get an oil treatment.. My bangs from where I lost my hair from sickness finally blending in with the rest of my hair and 5 inches shorter than when I walked in. Yes, I really, really love it!
Then we went back to Modern Nails. Got our nails similarly done in black polish with a little "Bling." Finally finishing up the day a little after 3 pm and have to head back home to get ready for work. She stayed but a few moments, her being exhausted from working all night it was time for her to go home and get some rest.
I never found out how much she spent on me today. It wasn't a special day, like my birthday or my Anniversary from the day before. I had been feeling really bad with my face like it is all swollen and distorted looking. But, it wasn't even for that.
I told her million times today, Thank you and she didn't have to spend all her money on me. She kept repeating to me over and over, I love you Mama, you are beautiful, and you deserve to be treated once in awhile from me.
Wow!!! How humbling. How I am so touch. Many times I feel as though I am forgotten. This gesture so unexpected, so not predicted that took me by surprise, brings tears streaming down my face... And I, am speechless, left with only one thing to say.. I am truly blessed.
