I decided 2 years ago to grow my hair out and donate it to Locks of Love. This organization takes donated hair and makes wigs for children who suffer from hair loss. Hair has to be at least 10" long to be donated. My hair was finally long enough! I decided to get it cut after I returned home from the Marriage Retreat in Gatlinburg.
My "before" picture
My friend, Mardi, took me and captured the moment in pictures...lol.
Even though I was growing my hair out FOR this purpose and I was totally ready to get rid of my long THICK hair, it was still hard to feel my "security blanket" being cut away like that.
All gone now...
Hopefully this ponytail can be used for a sweet child....
Much lighter and freer now - and I am going to start over again. :-)
