One of the side effects for many folks undergoing chemotherapy is a loss of hair. Fortunately, God in His infinite foreknowledge let me go bald long before I was officially diagnosed with cancer … thank you Lord!
But nevertheless since that diagnosis I have become a big devotee and lover of hats … and it’s become a year round passion.
Today I added this black plaid driver’s cap to my collection … I needed one to go with the shown gray/black polar fleece. So this hat is for the somewhat cold days … not the very cold days.
This floppy hat with it’s wide all around brim is my rainy day hat … and it works all year round. It’s also my beach hat for keeping the sun off my face and neck … and the top of my shiny bald head.
Hey, every body needs a ball cap … this one just reminds me of one of my favorite places to vacation … and a ball cap typically reflects a bit of a care-free attitude … especially for me …
This brown tweed driver’s cap is wool and lined and is my go-to cap for those really cold days and it really keeps my head warm on those blustery days.
(Thanks to my loving wife Sheryl for amusing me and taking all these hat pictures today. Love you dear!)
All this talk about hats has made me stop and think about all the other hats (roles/responsibilities) I wear. Here’s my list ….
Son, brother, cousin, husband, father, father-in-law, grandfather, brother-in-law, uncle, employee, co-worker, blogger, friend, neighbor, cancer warrior, church member, small group leader, brother IN Christ, forgiven sinner, child of God, joint heir with Christ …
Wonder what I might have missed … will continue to think about.
Used to be a grandson, but all my grandparents have died. Used to be a nephew, but all my aunts and uncles have passed away. Used to be a son-in-law, but my mother-in-law and father-in-law have both gone to sleep as well.
Have you given some thought to what your list might look like?
Considering my many hats …
