Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

Alayna and Lilly have always had long, beautiful hair. Personally, I love long hair. There are so many things that you can do with it and it just seems so much more feminine. But, Alayna's 2 best friends have shorter hair and she's always wanted to get hers cut. We have debated it for some time, but after Karli's leukemia diagnosis, Alayna approached us about donating her hair. Of course, the idea was so sweet and giving, that I pulled out the tape measurer. The minimum to donate is 10" for Locks of Love, and she would have ended up with shoulder length hair. So I agreed. Then Lilly decided she wanted hers cut. So, off to the salon we went.

Mikayla was so patient and after the girls were done, she thought it was her turn to get her hair cut. So our sweet cosmetologist plunked Mikayla into the chair and she sat perfectly still while receiving 2 french braids. It was so cute and she was so proud of her pretty hair!

Such pretty girls! What a great thing they did. And Mikayla's French braids are the most perfect braids I think I have ever seen!

I got a little teary reading this! Seeing my grandma get a wig because of cancer, and shaving my brother's head when he lost his hair to chemo makes this hit very close to home for me. I am so proud of you guys! What maturity and love.
