Locks of Love…


Today Katie and I sent her 12 inches of hair safely packaged and addressed to Locks of Love in Florida. While we were at the post office we also stocked up on special boxes to mail overseas along with customs forms. When the postal worker found out Katie is married to a Marine she handed her a miniature pocket flag prepared by the American Legion saying that they are proud of his service and they are praying for him and thanking him for defending our country and our freedom. When we notify them of his overseas address they will mail him and his unit these little flags with the messages to them. We were touched by this thoughtfulness.

I mowed the rest of our lawn today and I am pooped and sitting on the couch for the rest of the night. After watching the weather report for the next few days I’m glad to have had the chance to get the lawn mowed before we have several more days of rain.

Hope all is well in your neck of the woods…

Photobucket replaced all my photos with these blurred out versions and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.

  1. Locks of Love = a precious gift to another. Darling daughter’s hair is still long and beautiful. It’s the best of both worlds! Sharing always makes the heart sing.

  2. For some reason I keep posting linked to my homeschool blog — but I do my blog socializing from Gracious Hospitality. So, I’ll leave you another post. 😀

  3. What a lovely thing for your daughter to do – it will mean so much to someone going through a difficult time.

  4. One of our girls did that hair donation….through a different company….she only had to have 8 inches. Pretty cool thing to be able to do. Rest to your body tonight.

  5. Twelve inches and she still has so much left. I didn’t realize Andrew was going overseas. Their story is mirroring Bills and mine those first couple of years back in 1970.
    I’ve had to break the yard work up into chunks on many days. It’s back breaking and muscle aching!

  6. What a great way to share you hair…and year for getting that lawn moved. How wonderful…as you said, it looks like the rain is coming.

  7. Beautiful hair and it is a great thing to do..I am getting my hair cut today but it will only be and inch or two. (:

  8. What a wonderful gift Katie has given to someone. Have you thought about praying for the hair and its new owner? I’m sure you have ;-).
    Ok, so how did I miss Katie’s wedding dress and pictures?????

    I hope you enjoy the rain Ellen B. Our skies look threatening, but I’m sure they won’t deliver ;-(.

    • Cori G! Although Katie is married she hasn’t had her wedding yet so she hasn’t worn the wedding dress yet. That is going to take place after Andrew’s deployment. So you haven’t missed any photos of the dress or ceremony…
