Today I have done two things I have never done before.
1) I cut someone's hair.
2) I washed someone's hair. That is, I washed someone else's hair for the first time! Obviously I have washed my own hair before. Many times. ;)
This all started out because mom asked me to help by washing grandma's hair. And then as I was about to wash grandma's hair she asked me to also trim it. I told her that I've never cut hair before and warned her that she might have to go to a professional afterwards to get the job done properly.
"I have faith in you" she assured me. I wished I just had faith in myself!
As I began to cut I found myself trying to think of a hair-trimming god/dess who I could pray to. None came to mind (I doubt that there are any deities specializing in hair cuts) and I eventually settled on Brighid, because she is a goddess of the hearth. I think she laughed at me, though. I know that in the end I laughed at myself in the end.
And I did an excellent job cutting grandma's hair, if I may say so myself. :)
