When our Molly was a toddler, her hair was as radiant as a sunlit tree in Autumn.1497618_711993295548636_6740975317656893406_nWherever we roamed, she was swooned over by jealous admirers. If they could, she feared, some would have snipped off many a lock and stolen away into the night! We had to keep an extra tight hold on our little child of gold.1103151914

But, in time our little girl came to realize just where “the gold” in life lies, where true treasure is…as she gave her hair away to “Locks for Love.”

  1. Mike, As any apple picker, tomato grower, star gazer, leaf lover (that’s you) knows, Nature gives and gives and grows back again as long as She’s loved. Must have been so with you and yours long ago – and so now, Friar Dad. Peace, and thanks from the Prairie State
