Some of you know my BFF Kelly. I've been thinking a lot about her recently and I wanted to share one of the many funny stories about her... ahem, honesty.
If y'all remember this post, you probably remember her comment. I had some people email me to see if she was "for real." Y'all, she was. She is just brutally honest like that.
Here's another brutally honest conversation we had a while back.
I was driving to work (two hours away) and started thinking about those shows on TLC where a wife gets diagnosed with cancer and the husband shaves his head so she doesn't have to be bald alone. It's very heartfelt, sweet and emotional. I cry every time I hear those stories. I got to thinking, if I were to ever be diagnosed with cancer, JD couldn't shave his head. I mean, he's already bald, so what could he do!?
Who would shave their head for me so I wouldn't be alone?
Immediately, I think to call Kelly.
I tell her what I'm thinking and ask her....
"Kelly, who would do that for me? Would you???"
Kelly says "sure I would. I would shave my head in an instant for you!"
I reply with tears in my eyes, " you would? for me? you really would?"
Kelly says "of course, Rachel."
Long pause of gratitude.
Kelly breaks the silence with "If I shaved my head for you, then I would be the hero, so you can count on me!"
And she was serious.
So now, if one of us does something selfless for someone else, we say "I shaved my head today."
