"To the Artistic Team at RA,
As I sat in the chair waiting for my color to set, I was completely overwhelmed by gratitude. I looked around RA and marveled at all the wonderful people there, who could be making lots of money, but instead chose to take care of me – to take care of us. This compassionate benevolence is something I have rarely experienced. To be cared for with no strings attached is an incredible gift.
I am not always the best at receiving. I am much better at doing, and in that chair I was frantically thinking and searching for a way that I could repay your kindness. Then, David, whose openness allowed me to feel like I had a new best friend, swept in, and it sunk in. When you are given a heartfelt gift, what you do is open your own heart in gratitude.
Thank you all for kindness, generosity, and making us all look FABULOUS. And, thank you for giving me the chance to grow and be cared for. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it.
