  7. Hi all,
    You look great and like your hair. It will allow you the natural look with little prep. All of you are in our thoughts and prayers continually. Praise God for HIS faithfulness and your obedience. Love you, Uncle Gary

  8. Strength and dignity are Tara’s clothing, and she laughs at the times to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on Tara’s tongue. Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, but Tara who fears the LORD is to be praised. (Modified Prov. 31: 25,26,30)

    Sending the beautiful Maier family all of my love ๐Ÿ™‚ xxoo

    “I love you, LORD; you are my strength. The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my Savior. My God is my rock in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the strength of my salvation and my stronghold…. But in m distress I cried out to the LORD, yes I prayed to my God for help and He heard me from His sanctuary; my cry reached his ears.” Psalm 18. We love you and will continue to cry out for Gods continued hand upon your healing!

  17. Tara, Jay & Family,

    Our warm and loving thought sare with you as you speed down the ighway towards the mountain — then up the hill. As you win this fight we all know that the highest power holds you cose and in his arms are being carried.

    If you lose all of your hair juss remember one thing — hair is just overrated !! And we can anticipate what we get back when treatments let us have hair again. But for now, just think of all the hmoney you don’t have to spend on hair cuts. Also, it doessn’t take long to fix and go out the door. Save your hair and out it out in the spring for the birds to build their nests out of your hair.

    Carol and I both saved our hair and put it out in the spring for the birds ! It made me feel like it helped them and me to deal with my hair loss.

    I am thnakful for many things these days……. and I ponder and wonder in amazement about every little thing. All the blessings that I have…. love all our family with all my heart. God is good and he will see us both through our journey.

    Hugs and prayers to all !!
    We love you kiddo !

    Aunt Dee Dee & Uncle Frank
