That I don't like to cut my hair while Phillip is gone. I mean, I trim and shape it up when it's needed, but as for the length, I don't cut any off.
And here's why:
My hair grows at an incredibly slow rate. And while Phillip is gone, time goes by at an incredibly slow rate. So, by not cutting my hair, I can look in the mirror and physically SEE how much time has gone by.
It's not something I planned. I didn't cut any length off on the first deployment either. I just have no desire to do it; it's almost like I'm cutting off and making major changes to something that BELONGS to US. Get it? I know it's kind of deep thinking, but...
So the same hair that's there when's he gone, is the same hair that he will come home to.
I do it all in the name of LOVE.
(Now where did I put the phone number to my therapist?)
