    1. grat·i·tude  

      The quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.
      gratefulness - thankfulness - thanks - appreciation
  1. Gratitude has really been laying heavy on my heart since my husband has been in Tucson caring for his father. 
  2. I'm extremely grateful that I'm married to a man that his family is on the top of his priority list. He took time off of his job, time away from our family, and gave up his life temporarily to comfort and care for the man that gave him life. It's a huge sacrifice and I'm extremely proud of him. It's a lot easier to be self - absorbed and not take the time to do for others unconditionally.                                                                                    
  3. I know that he's exhausted and misses being home, but he's where he wants to be and should be. He made a commitment and he's going to stick with it - that tells you a lot about what kind of man he is... his father did an awesome job!  I'm so grateful that God blessed me with having them in my life. 
  4. I hope somehow he's aware of the sacrifice his son has made for him - he would be proud!
  5. "Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation."
  6. Have a blessed day!

Yesterday I went in for my hair consultation for my locs. It's a little overwhelming trying to decide the size of locs, but this is what I decided.

Tuesday is the big day and I can't wait!

It's interesting though the responses I get from people when I say that I'm getting locs. I've gotten everything from that's interesting to don't you just let your hair get really dirty and don't comb it?

I'm well aware of how most of the world stereotypes black women by their hair. I think I've shared in past blogs how people approach me or don't approach me depending on the style of my hair.

I decided a few years ago that natural was going to be it for me. No more chemical relaxers and no flatiron on my hair daily - I'm just going to do me and people can make all the prejudgements that they want. If you're going to make a decision about me based on my hair I don't want you in my life anyway.      

I decided to grow my hair out due to a bad h…

Have An Open Heart

As I was sorting through pictures this morning I came across pictures of my seven-year-old granddaughter with girls that she met for the first time on a 2 day stay in Prescott. I was drawn to the smiles on their faces and the love in their eyes. They met, accepted each other, and acted as if they had been lifelong friends. Oh, how I had forgotten about the innocence of a child. The color of skin, the size of a body, the structure of a face does not matter. They are ready to accept and love unconditionally until we and society teach them differently.

There was nothing but smiles and laughter as they danced, made beaded jewelry, and ate. They made sure that they all were a part of whatever they were participating in. They cared about each other's feelings and made sure that everyone was having fun and was happy. Why is it that we grow to become so obsessed with appearance and behavior of others that we miss seeing the light or the struggles in others?  We're so quick to judge b…
