As we were Spring cleaning this year, Clover decided to give away some of her clothing to a local Women's Shelter. She has a very hard time parting with her things, and I am so proud of her for being able to give to charity. Her giving opened up a large discussion in our family about ways to give and things to give, how good it can feel to give, and how it opens up space for the new - not necessarily new "stuff", but new space (both in the physical and the mental realms).
Part of our discussion included my decision to donate hair to Locks of Love when I was twenty years old. Clover was totally fascinated by the idea of giving away hair. We looked at some pictures on the Locks of Love website about donating, and made a plan to give up our braids. This weekend, we followed through....
Hello short, fun, Summer-y hair!!
