the ancient art of henna

A beautiful lady came to our house tonight, an incredible artist. She drove in traffic from Seattle to do this for Becky for no charge. It was amazing watching her  work, like frosting a cake. She put some wonderful mood music on but it was soon drownd out with sweet children noise and everyone talking quietly while watching her work.The children were in awe.  It was a nice evening, we needed to be together, to touch each other, to feel each others support. We had some bad news this evening. Becky's Dr. called saying they found five new nodules on both her lungs. It'll be up to the chemo to get rid of at least most of them and then they can go in and take out one or two.We continue in faith and hope.

  5. She has the henna in a frosting tube and puts it on just like you'd frost a cake, totally freehand.Amazing, Amazing! The black part will flake off and then it'll be brown. It last for about ten days.

  7. Hi Linda! You look so darling. NOW I know why Steve is always "touching" his head. I want to have lunch sometime! Share my HUGS with Becky and Mike. Tell Becky how magnificent her henna-head looks. Like a spring bouquet! Love, Candy
