Does the way I wear my hair make me a better person?

As my mom’s hair was being shaved, I was reminded of this inspirational track from 2005…

I am not my hair / I am not this skin
I am not your expectations, no no
I am not my hair / I am not this skin 
I am a soul that lives within

  1. Shayne, I’ve never heard this song before. Beautiful. So true and so fitting for your mom!!!
    I was thinking of her all day today as she had her 2nd chemo cycle. Our prayers continue to be with her and your entire family.


  2. Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
    Life is beauty, admire it.
    Life is bliss, taste it.
    Life is a dream, realize it.
    Life is a challenge, meet it.
    Life is a duty, complete it.
    Life is a game, play it.
    Life is a promise, fulfill it.
    Life is sorrow, overcome it.
    Life is a song, sing it.

    Life is a struggle, accept it.
    Life is a tragedy, confront it.
    Life is an adventure, dare it.
    Life is luck, make it.

    Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
    Life is life, fight for it.
