My son cut his hair. The last time he had a haircut he was thirteen. He’s now thirty-four.
(And yes, he is a priest–Episcopal, which is how I have grandchildren. 🙂 )
After all these years, everyone, myself included, assumed he would never cut it. Then I had a dream shortly before Christmas. I dreamt that we went to his house for Christmas (which is what we do since it’s easier than hauling the kids down to see us), and when he opened the door, his hair was short.
We laughed about the dream on Christmas day. Two days ago, he posted this on Facebook…
He’d cut his hair and donated it to an organization that makes wigs for cancer patients. A very worthy cause and I’m proud of him…
But seeing him with short hair is going to take some getting used to.
Very nice! I like long hair on some guys, and short hair on others. Your son managed both looks very nicely, though I still like the short hair a little more. Too cool about your dream. Proof that they do come true sometimes, right? 😀
He does look pretty good with it short, doesn’t he? I’ve never seen him as an adult without the long hair. And ironically about the dream, it didn’t plant the seed. He said at Christmas that he’d been thinking about it. Maybe I picked up on those thoughts 800 some miles away.
He can let it grow back and keep it, or let it grow back and donate it again. Good work
Donna, he’s talking about doing just that, letting it grow out and then donating it again. It took about 3-4 years for it to get that long the first time though, so we’ll see.
Well Kassandra, your son will save money on shampoo and conditioner. He does look nice with short hair and it was for a great cause. I’m sure it was a big change for him. 🙂
A huge change, Karen. The long hair was part of his identity, but I think he’ll find many advantages to having it shorter. Less shampoo and conditioner is one (and easier to wash and dry). Not having so much hair for his little ones to grab and yank on will be another!
I think your son looks very handsome with his short hair and someone will definitely appreciate the donation!
Thanks, Bonnie! I think he looks quite distinguished, which is a definite advantage in his field. And the picture doesn’t do it justice. His hair was really thick (like mine) so they may get two wigs out of it. It will feel good for him to know that someone’s spirits have gotten a good boost by having hair again!!
looks good both ways. lucky man, and lucky wife. what a big change
Thanks, Louise. His wife had never seen him without the long hair, but she’s decided she likes it short too.
That is cool about the dream! Your son looks a lot like you. I like the shorter hair and like the fact that someone is going to be uplifted by his gift.
The dream was really cool, Shannon, and the fact that I even remembered it. I almost never remember my dreams, and when I do it usually means they are important.
We get that a lot, that he looks like me. Ironically as a kid he looked more like his father, but when he hit puberty the genes from my side of the family seemed to take over.
Wow, I can’t remember what his hair looked like as a teen, but he looks very “fatherly” with his new haircut. So, haircut for him, new hip for your main squeeze, what’s next for you?
Hopefully, settlement on the Maryland house, Irv. We have a contract. Waiting to hear about inspections. Meanwhile I’m trying to find space in Florida for all the things from that house that I’m not willing to part with. Some major sorting and chucking things out going on around here right now!
