O Lord, every day when I brush my hair,
many hairs are left in the brush.
My one grandmother had thinning hair
which she braided it into a knot
at the back of her head.
My other grandmother had
no appreciable loss of hair.
My husband is partially bald,
but hair loss in men is more common.
You didn’t stay on earth
long enough to grow old, Lord,
so you didn’t have thinning hair.
Help us accept such loss
with humor.

Matthew 10:30:
And even the hairs of your head are all numbered.
