Preachers Daughters

I found a lifetime show as I was flipping channels called Preachers Daughters. I have to say I was quite surprised. I guess I had a false perception of what this show would be about. I assumed because they're preachers kids that this show would highlight them as young women working towards being the pillar of society. Not so! These girls are doing things like getting tattoos, smoking pot and partying hard. I don't really understand why they have a show. There's so many young girls that are doing great things in the world - where's their show?

I get that they're typical teenagers experimenting and acting out like some (most) teens do, but do we need a show about it? If a God loving family and a father as a preacher has lost authority over their kids, is there much hope for the rest of us? That was my thought as I sat watching.

I have 5 children and 9 grandchildren so I'm well aware that children are all individuals with their own personalities, but respect for your parents is just respect. It doesn't matter what their personality is. My kids weren't perfect, but respect is something that was enforced in my home. I didn't see any of that with these families.

Maybe I watched it on a wrong day and I'm not really giving them a chance. But personally I think it's time for a new show with respectful teenagers working towards a better tomorrow.                                              

Not to be rude but these girls have had their little taste of fame, and I'm sure people recognize them now in their hometown. NEXT!

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…
