on monday, i went to the salon for a trim and to get my hair nice and straight (just in time for the Searcy monsoon)
two girls came in, obviously only one was going to get her hair cut. She cut off ten inches.
no, not for Locks of Love
but for their (mutual) best friend.
you see, she had gotten into a car accident earlier this year and lost half of her skull. She wasn't expected to live. but she pulled through. she has to have another surgery in January and this girl is giving up her hair so her friend can have some too.
it is a powerful thing to see someone donate their hair to a stranger, but there is powerful love in making that donation to a friend.
