Tribute to Mom by Leann Harris
Since it is so close to Mother's Day, I wanted to share a funny story with y'all. My mother and grandmother at one time tried to color their hair. Now both mom and grandmother have dark hair, so when grandmother decided to dye her hair to rid it of the gray, she turned her hair orange. Not a mute orange, but a bright neon orange. She called my mother hysterical. What could she do? Between laughs, mom advised her to go to the beauty shop and have the pros dye it black.
After grandma's experience, you'd think mom might have an idea that her hair wouldn't take color well. But no. She tried having her hair streaked with silver. What mom got was ugly mustard color. She wasn't a happy camper when she came home from the beauty salon. But mom lived with it until it grew out.
As you can see, my mother is a nurse. I will tell you she had the gift of nursing and every patient she ever had adored her. She is an amazing woman...who shouldn't dye her hair.
