See my Mom's goregeous silver strands? I've always loved my Mom's hair. It was a little sad for me to see it go. BUT ... knowing the surpise soon coming, my anticipation outweighed my sadness.


It was a busy day, so we still need to get it all fluffed-n-stuff, but here it is - straight out of the box and onto Mom's beautiful head. I was anxious to see the comparison here. I had thought my hair was so much whiter ... look at all the dark strands! But still, a pretty good match, wouldn't you say?

The wig came from an amazing place: Savvy Sheitels The people there are really wonderful - sensitive, smart, easy to talk with. They totally worked with me to get this high-quality wig at a reasonable price. They understood the whole sentimentality of it. And look! Even without any work at all, the wig is gorgeous.

Now, something to think about:
"If we are to walk with head held high, we must make our contribution to life."
Thomas S. Monson
At this stage of my life, this statement is synonymous with Mom.
What does this quote mean to you?

  3. those silver strands are stunning, even moreso because your mother is so lovely! that's a great adage, too, and it does seem to fit this situation pretty perfectly!

  4. Oh the wig turned out perfect!!! I am so happy for your Mom!!! What a good daughter you are!!!

    Walking with our head held difficult at throws us into some directions we are not ready for...thus we learn and we pass on goodness....from our mistakes and hard times....growth emerges!!!

  5. i like it! she looks great!

    that is a good me it says...

  6. Oh my goodness, your mum looks so good! It looks like the wig has turned out perfectly - such a fantastic and kind idea, Denalee. :)

  7. What a beautiful wig! And what a beautiful gesture!

  8. Yay! Your mom must be so proud to have you as a daughter. What a beautiful wig!

  9. Gorgeous! Wow, your hair looks good on her! They did a really beautiful job.

    I think making our contribution to the world means using our talents, whatever they may be, to bless the lives of others. When we serve with love we are using a measure of what we've been given, and it returns to us 10 fold. Then our confidence will wax strong in the presence of God . . . and we will walk with our heads held high.

  10. This photo literally made me cry. Your mom is so beautiful. Although I don't know you or your family personally. I have already come to love you all.

    .... and you are so right, if we don't contribute to our lives and the lives of others, how can we walk tall and be proud of our actions?

  11. Wow, it looks great! She is beautiful :)
