What a difference 8 inches makes...for 2 people

Ainsley was in need of a haircut, and when Aunt Tennille is here it is a good time for a free haircut. Our plan was 3 to 4 inches, but then Tennille told us about an organization called Beautiful Lengths that collects hair to make wigs for women going through cancer treatment. At first Ainsley's response was a very affirmative negative to even the 3 inches. You see, Ainsley is very attached to having long hair because, you know: princesses have long hair. But amazingly she had a change of heart and decided that it would be a good gift to give someone else and so she even went for the 8 inches. She really likes it now, and hopefully her hair will help someone going through a very difficult time.Before:

Way to go Ainsley!! You look sooo pretty. You are a real princess, you're a daughter of the King of kings. And you have a heart just like his.

Love, Cyndi and family

Wow. I am speechless. It may be a renewable resource, but what a sacrifice.

Hey Tiffany, I'm just finding you via the link on your Christmas card! I will have to spend some time catching up...

Good job, Ainsley! Your new hair-do looks lovely, and your heart is even more lovely for practicing such generosity toward others.
