Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It's learning to look past life's imperfections

Gift of Love & Random Acts of Kindness

Remember the old story "Gift of the Magi"?

Our youngest daughter (22yrs) Erika has long, silky, beautiful brown hair.
This past Friday morning she took an early lunch & had her hair cut, and donated 10 inches to "Locks of Love" to honor her sister.

She didn't say a word to us or anyone else. Just quietly explained to the stylist what she wanted to do. She didn't make a big deal about it, just wanted to honor her sister in her own way.
As Erika attempted to pay for the cut and new style she was told another customer heard the conversation and paid her bill.
She came back to work to receive the gift of Rachel's good news e mail!


  1. Wonderful.....how very proud of her you must be.... :)

  2. Locks of love is such a wonderful program. Over the years, I've had several middle school students donate their hair to locks of love. Actually, when I went back to school that last week to clear my things, one of my students had gotten her hair cut short, and she said she did it for locks of love.
    I wish I could let me hair grow that long but I always keep it kind of short.


Hey! Thanks for stopping in I love hearing from my bloggy friends!
