Every week I have SO many different clients that I e-mail, text, facebook, see, and talk to. Each one of them is unique and each one has a different story to tell. That is the reason I love my job! Sometimes you never know how much you mean to a person or how much they mean to you, until they are gone. Today that feeling was validated.
And this is how I felt about my client Joan...
Joan was like a cat with 9 lives. You name it, she had it. Even though she was constantly battling some form of illness her attitude was never affected. She had great energy about her. She was vivacious, amusing, funny, and an overall good spirit. Joan meant so much to me. The last time I saw her I went to the rehabilitation center she was staying. She said she felt like a celebrity because her stylist came to cut her hair. Unfortunately, you never know when someone will be taken away from you. That is why it’s so important to spend time with the people you care about. Even through losing someone is difficult, it allows you to appreciate the time you have spent with him or her and others around you that you truly care about. I loved Joan; I will take so much from her. I am thankful that I was able to make her feel good about herself. This is the reason I started and continue to do hair.
Every client is very important to me, which is why I try to make sure I'm not distracted and on my game when with them. This way I can focus all my energy on my clients. I truly enjoy them, listening to their stories, laughing, and trying to help. I want to be there for my clients because I deeply care about all of them!
Thank you Joan for allowing me to be part of your life!
In Loving Memory
