"Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair." ~ Kahlil Gibran
The "hair" before the "extreme makeover"; hers grows so fast it won't take long to get to this length again. I love the girl under this head of hair; I would give my life for her. Sometimes I wonder if choices I made were the right ones; the ones to help her grow up with the strength of character she will need in life; to be able to discern the truth of what is right and wrong and to stand firm. This mop of hair covers a smart, beautiful and kind girl. It's in there, I shouldn't worry. But I'm still a Mom. It's still my job to worry. Someday she will understand this, when her daughter's cascading curls stand right in front of her, and she begins to wonder.
