My 16 year old daughter has been growing her hair out for a while now. She looks a lot like an Indian with her long dark hair and her beige complexion. At the beginning of this school year she decided she would allow her hair to grow a little more and then donate a full 10 inches. She planned to wait till the summer, but when we went to get her a trim tonight she decided it was time. Watching her sit in that chair and make such a nice gesture was so wonderful. Her hair in much shorter now but it looks so cute, just like her. And someone out there will be able to use the hair she gave to feel better about themselves as well. What a great example of Love. Doing something for someone you don't even know and may never meet. A VERY cool thing to witness.
She was commenting on the silver hairs I am getting at a much more steady pace now. (After my last hair cut I wanted to go back and tell the stylist she has made a terrible mistake, because somehow she managed to cut my hair in such a way that EVERY silver hair is more noticeable.) I was feeling the pressure to cave and color my hair again until my daughter said this," You know mom, I like your silver hair. It looks like (pause) Hair Jewelry." I LOVE THAT!!!!!! Hair Jewelry, it sounds so much nicer than "old hair". ;o)
So from now on when you look in the mirror and wonder if it is time to color or pluck those silver puppies out, just remember they are all natural jewelry for your head.
