This afternoon a friend of ours was over for a hair cut and perm, in the laundry room of all places, but had it not been for the washer and dryer, it would be difficult to realize it wasn't a sitting room. A pretty cloth laid over the baskets of clothes, everything set out and ready, peaceful music playing, a cup of hot tea or glass of cold water ready to be poured, a spring scented candle freshening the air in anticipation of the toxic perm solution, a smiling face ready to talk, and a fan cooling the windowless room on this warm spring afternoon. What hair solon exudes such hospitality and beauty? Who would think to make the environment pretty while cutting hair? I wouldn't consider the garage, but I certainly wouldn't normally think to prepare the space other than pick up clutter and make sure the floor is clean. =) My sister's God-given ability is a blessing in and of itself, but even more so when she uses it to bless others. And how blessed I am to have such as sister from whom I can learn so much! =) I love you Caity. You inspire me.
