Yesterday I received a text message from a friend saying that she was having a bad day and she just wanted to sit in a dark closet and cry.

After a few texts back and forth I finally said, "Snap out of it! I'm sure Tom's dad and your uncle (deceased) would love to have a bad day."  I told her there's always someone going through something much worse - you need to be thankful for what you're blessed with each day. You can't let the devil have authority over your life.

After the texting ceased I starting feeling like I was too harsh, but it's what I believe and how I live my life. We all have bad days, but it's what you do with those days that matter.

She called on her way home from work and sounded great. I said, "It sounds like you're feeling much better."

She said she was feeling a lot better and decided to just let it all go and not think about what was bothering her. I told it's National Angel Day and I was just being an Angel.

Happy Thursday - make it awesome!

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…


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…
