Thanks for voting on the hair!:) I appreciate the input and it’s been fun to read the comments too. My appointment is later today and I think I’m going with hair #3! I’ll post the “after” photos later. My stylist does a great job so at least I know my hair is in good hands!
Okay, now time to totally change gears. I usually don’t write about the news but I’ve just been so affected by the Jessie Davis story (I think everyone has) and feel so devestated for her family. In case you haven’t heard, she is the missing pregnant mom from North Canton (go to cantonrep.com or any news outlet for the story). Her house is less than a mile from mine, literally just down the corner. It’s just so bizarre and sad to go down the street and see helicopters, camera crews, and reporters. My heart breaks for her family and I cannot imagine the agony they must be going through right now. It’s interesting to see how something like this can have such a widespread affect on our emotions. Earlier this week my dad went with me to search a wooded area that I’ve seen while running. It’s very secluded and I’ve seen people drive, and dump things back there. Just to even be looking for a person…a mother, a girl my own age pregnant, made me sick to my stomach. We’ve been praying so earnestly that she is found alive but during that search I was also hoping I wouldn’t see anything because…how to you prepare for what you might find? Just the entire thought process was disturbing and too much. Anyway, I told my dad I was going to run the rest of my route home and he followed me partway, driving slowly ahead. A woman pulled up to me on the road and asked if I was okay because of the “suspicious” vehicle in front of me. Bless her heart, what a considerate person! It also goes to show you just how on edge everyone seems to be. Neighbors, friends, people in the community are all thinking about it let alone nationwide. I have mixed feelings about seeing it all over the news non-stop (and even writing about it here). In one sense I think it’s good to raise the profile and help keep the case moving forward and help people continue to pray, search, and be watchful for a newborn baby or Jessie. On the eother hand it just seems like people chase the next “big story” and things can become sensational almost gossipy. I don’t know what I’m trying to say…it might not make any sense and I’m probably off-base, it’s just weird to know how to process such a shocking story. Anyway, the bottom line is there is a 2-year old little boy who is missing his mom and hopefully those in charge of the case will find her and give the family peace. I can’t comprehend the evil in the world we live in sometimes, it just breaks my heart. God Bless the family, Jessie, and little Chloe.
