Cutting My Hair For Locks of Love

Locks of Love

This Christmas season with my little girl almost turning 2, I just have a whole new appreciation for everything and am in the Christmas mode full swing. About 1 month ago a woman at yoga told me with my hair has gotten long, I should donate it to Locks of Love. I thought yeah, maybe. Then I read Deanna Favre's book and she and her family donated their hair to Locks of Love. So the idea started to grow on me. Then to top it off, one of my favorite websites had an article about Locks of Love, so I said that's a sign.


My hair is long and has always been long (past middle of back). I've had it shoulder length once in 7th grade and never let it get that short again, so this is a big challenge for me, yet it will be very beneficial to my heart.


Hair is something I am fortunate to have and it will grow back. Some children and adults are not. So I'm going for it. On the 19th I am scheduled with my salon to cut it. Locks of Love requires at least 10 inches so my hair will probably end up shorter than shoulder length when all is said and done. I will try and post before and after pictures.


So this holiday season, I'm not asking you all to cut off your hair and donate it, but maybe do a little extra something. Something that will make someone else smile. My little girl has made me realize how fortunate we are; not only from what her smile brings, but also in everything she has brought to our family.
