I am worried about Kate. She is losing her hair. Believe me, I know the sinking feeling that comes with the realization that you are going bald. Not that she is worried. As you can see from the picture, she sleeps well. As a matter of fact she is sleeping through the night, yeah! Anyway, babies don't worry about how they look. They just are who they are. There's wisdom in that. The animal world doesn't worry about how they look either. They are satisfied with how God made them. As I grow older I have to reconcile myself with the fact I am not twenty or even fifty anymore. If I don't life gets pretty sad. Kate is lucky though, she has a lot of hair to look forward to. I know she'll be a real cutie, but whatever she looks like, I pray she doesn't believe the lie that how you look determines who you are. I'll try to keep her from believing that lie.
