    ...but Not At the Moment

    I first cut off my hair very short six years ago. It was something I wanted to do for years. From there it just got shorter. A year after my first haircut I had it shaved and have worn it like that off and on since. I actually think my husband loves it more than me!

    Since this past February I began the journey to

    become "bald by choice". It was an experiment at that time, and fueled by a desire to check "shave my head" from my bucket list. My hair was about 4 inches below my shoulders at the start. I began by doing a side-shave leaving it about 1/2 inch long, then a week later shaved...

    Over the past several years I have become bald.

    This was devastating to me, in that a woman's hair is her covering. I am so happy to find other sisters who have embraced what could have been devastating. Thank you all for your words of encouragement and acceptance.
