Rupenzel, let down your hair

Well, I feel a little naked, but it was time to let go of the hair. One of my friends showed after they cut it and she just couldn't beleive that I cut the long hair. I told Lou that I was only growing it for Locks of Love and now I felt like myself again.  We usually adopt a family at Christmas time, but with things the way they are, this is the best I can do--give my hair so some little girl will have a wig to wear. As you can see it was at my waist and very hard to wash and dry, not to mention the headaches that long hair can cause. Guess I should have put on a light colored sweater, so you could actually see how long it was.

Now this is the new Pat with my very short do. Wish I knew how to put make up on, because it still makes me look old, but I earned those wrinkles from all the smiles and illness I have been through.

I hope you all like my new do. I feel sassy now and feel like I can handle anything that comes my way. I am opposite of Samson, in that I feel stronger now with the hair shorter.
I am packing away all the gifts from my sisters because it's only a reminder of the pain in my heart. I am ready to start a New Year with nothing but positive attitudes. Someone told me they spoke with my adopted brother and he told them it was a good thing he wasn't there when my oldest brother assaulted me. I thank God for that.
I pray that the Storm of the Century doesn't hit NYC before my son can leave. They are expecting it to be the worst snow storm ever, so please pray that Donnie can leave the city before it hits. He will be leaving by train on Sunday and arriving in New Orleans on Monday, then driving to the country to meet us. He likes the train ride because he can catch up on reading and see the scenery along the way, then he will fly back.
Well I have more things to get done, so I hope you all have a beautiful weekend. Love, hugs, and prayers, Pat

What a wonderful thing for you to do. Your hair certainly was very long & looks really beautiful...lovely & glossy. Someone will be very pleased to get a wig from your gorgeous locks.
Love your new "sassy" do too...looks great.
Love Nettie

Nettie, thanks so much. It really feels good to do this, but they bleach all the hair,make the wigs, then dye bunches at a time, but it's a real hair wig they make for young children and it was so worth the effort. Thanks for the compliment. Love Ya, Pat

Carole, Thanks so much. You will have a great feeling when you have it cut and know that it is going to help someone. If you want to donate it for an adult, it doesn't have to be over 10" and I think it's Pantene that does it. I've been trying to join your blog, so will try from from email. Merry Christmas, Love and hugs, Pat

Great before and after pics. My hair is a little longer than yours was. Everyone asks when I will cut it. I do not know when but I will donate it when I do. I have had long hair for more years of my life than I have had short hair. You look really cute in short hair.
