If you have been reading this blog for any amount of time, or you know me in person, then you will know that my hair is used as a negotiation in our marriage. You see, I like it short, Ben likes it long. I use this to my advantage to earn a little extra spending money. The amount isn't that important, it is more of a way that both of us can get our way with such a silly thing. We both agree to the terms, and a contract is entered into. Some years it is more formal than others. One year, we signed an agreement in Ben's journal. This year, no formal treaty was signed, but I have already spent the money...so...well...we are bound for the next THREE YEARS. That's right.
I can't cut my hair, expect for a trim, until July 21, 2016!
So here it was the last time I cut my hair. Around July 21. Also, serious bed head in this picture, but it shows the length.
This is today.
Remember in the classic movie "White Christmas"? It is one of my favorites, and one of my favorite songs is about about when you can't sleep, count your blessings.
Last night, I couldn't sleep, and started counting my blessings. It very quickly turned into thinking about all my friends and family that have blessed my life. Then I started writing letters to all those who have played a part in my life. The letter started getting long, and I was afraid I was leaving someone out. I was going to simply write a Facebook post saying how grateful I am for my friends and family, but several friends and family members aren't on Facebook.
So I am taking this opportunity to say I am so grateful for all of my friends and family. I have been blessed with amazing people in my life.
I could never thank you enough.
And I want to say that it doesn't matter if I have known you for years, or if we have just met, or never met in person, friends are friends, and you have still made a difference.
Love you lots and lots.
