  1. This is wonderful. You have told so much in those brief words. Often times girls like Shai end up envying blonds, because that is all that they see. And they are looked upon favorably. The thought that the roles could be reversed, and that the blond could envy the beauty of Shai’s hair, is remarkable and refreshing. Thank you.

  2. We just had a similar experience with my niece – my SIL was stumped! I guess it’s a universal feeling with six and seven year old little girls, noticing beauty in everyone and wanting to experience it and share it.
