The First Cut

Writing Challenge Day 30

I knew the moment would come, and I thought it would be more painful than it was. My daughter wanted her beautiful long hair cut. She was tired of the tangles and just wanted to be free. She seen her brother have his hair buzzed several times, and she finalized her decision that she wanted a haircut too. She knew it was part of becoming a big girl.

As I took pictures of her long hair I wasn’t sad. I thought this moment would be a mommy epic cry-fest, but instead I was happy my daughter was so crazy passionate for something. For the first time in my mom journey, I was excited to make this step forward.

In my journey of being a Mom I have learned many things about life. Today, I was reminded things don’t always work out the way we expect. Since the day she was born with a full head of hair, I told myself she would be the girl with long hair never meeting the blade of a pair of scissors. But in that moment I didn’t realize I would have a girl who dreamed of having a new look at an early age.

Today’s Message

Wouldn’t it be nice if we can stay excited with any change in our life? Just like a little girl getting excited over her first haircut. Getting excited over the unknown change. I know with God we can have confidence of change, but wouldn’t that be going against the norm? Is it okay to trust in a God who takes us down challenging paths? If I have learned anything with going against the norm with God, it would be I want to be the daughter who gets excited for challenges and change. I want to have faith like a child. Don’t you?
