Locks of Love Hair donation

Remember a few years ago when Elli donated her hair to Locks of Love?

She did it again.

This time she donated 14" of hair!

Our friend Lisa is going through Chemo right now. She's shared with us on Facebook how awful it is to lose her hair, and her nails, and to feel like you're sucking on a tailpipe when getting the chemo treatment.

We can't imagine.

The worst we have it here in the Mulkey household is being exposed to nasty dog farts.

We are so lucky.

My achy back and creeky knees are nuthin'.


I'm not being poisoned to eradicate an invader in my body.

{thank God}

Elli gets this.

She wanted to make sure her hair was donated in Lisa's honor.

So that's what we did.

The hair is used to make wigs for cancer patients.

I know I've said this before, but when I grow up I want to be just like Elli.

She's 10.

I'm not.

She's amazing.

I'm not saying that I'm not amazing, and gracious, and generous. But she's different.

I would have done the same thing because I felt guilty.

She doesn't do it because she feels guilty. She does it because she can and it doesn't really affect her world at all. It's just hair. Who cares. It grows back. She'll do it again, and again, again. Because she can, and others need it.

She doesn't have any weird security issues with her hair like us dorky grown-ups. She's also really young and innocent and doesn't really really understand all the bad things that happen in the world.

Or maybe she's just way more awesome than the rest of us.

I don't know. 

All I know is that I wish I could capture it and spread it everywhere.

Because it's awesome.
