For the love of family

It's only hair, but somehow it's more than that. It affects our whole self image. Good hair days are days when we can conquer the world. And bad hair days, well, you might as well just stay in bed, because it seems nothing will go right. We identify ourselves by our hair and it's one of the first things we notice about others. People with good hair are envied and people with poor hair pitied. Just look at the multi-million dollar hair styling industry if you have any doubts, hair is a big deal.
So, in the spirit of stepping out of her comfort zone and doing something meaningful in loving support of my cancer fighting sister April, Whitney today cut off 10 inches of her loved and pampered hair to donate to Locks of Love, an outfit that makes wigs for kids who have lost their hair to cancer and other diseases. It's not quite the same as losing it due to Chemo, but it's no picnic either. Besides cosmetic surgery there is probably no other greater way to alter your looks than a drastic hair cut. And so for that I salute you honey, and I love you and April both very much.
