Hello it's me

Yes I have been out of touch for awhile. Life has been really busy. I have a new job, my family has suffered several illness, but God has sustained me and he still resides on the throne. I will be posting new photos in a few days and I hope this will encourage women who are on the fence considering locs.

To Dye or Not to Dye

I have this grey patch in the front of my hair. It is becoming more prominent and I am considering just going aheah and belaching it white.

What do you think. I want to hear some thoughts?

It has been a while since I blogged, but I will be posting updates again soon. I have missed you all and I look forward to getting my schedule back on track. "Thank you to all of you who sent words of encouragement during my recovery. And to those who have been offering support during the recovery of my parents.

Locked in the hospital

This is a testimony to the true versatility of locks. I spent yesterday in the hospital on a gurney, because I brusied my ribs. Through all the tests, the head tossing because of the pain, the tears I shed each time I coughed, my hair still looked fierce!

When they sat me up to go to X-ray, I just ran my fingers through my locks and kept on going. As for the ribs,they will heal with time. My recommendation is if you ever have a deep cough from a cold and you hear a pop, call the doctor immediately.

What Touched Me!

Today I was getting my praise on! Tears were streaming down my face, I was exhalting my Savior and the spirit in the sanctuary was high. As I began to come back to earth and face the realities of life on this side, I realized God is more than enough, more than able, more than I could ever imagine.

What touched me, Not what, Who!

When I look back over my life

When I look back over my life, and think things over, I can truly say that I've been blessed and I have a testimony.
This photo was taken SuperBowl Sunday. I was spending the afternoon with my Church family, they are a beautiful group of people. One of the people took this photo for my husband and sent it over to him..I have an amazing Church family. I wish that everyone could experience the love that they shower on me. And I tell you our Pastor and First Lady are the best. I don't know what I would do without them. If you ever get to Riverside California, visit Cross Word Christian Church.
This style was a fresh wetset on my locks. I don't use alot of product of my locks. I spritz with water and lavender oil when I set my lock, and that is all I use. My curls usually last about two week at a time as long as I use a satin sleep cap. The locks are coming along nicely, and I love them more everyday.

My First Retighten

I had my first retighten done this past weekend. And let me tell you, once you get used to not combing your hair its hard to sit still and let someone touch your head.

I achieved this look by wetting my hair and setting on pink perm rods, and sitting under the dryer for 45 minutes. The style will last me two weeks.

I just love my Sisterlocks. Come on in and join the family!

I am proud to say "My President"

Tears are flowing down my cheeks, and my nose is burning. Inside so many emotions are flashing through my body and mind. I am excited about the future, sad that my Grandfather did not live to see this happen, proud that I can share this with my Grandchildren.

I can not express verbally what is in my heart, but I know millions share my feelings, today is a day of renewed hope, faith and prosperity.

Thank you Jesus, for being so gracious and allowing me to live to see history made.

WHAAA! If I were younger I would have a tantrum!

I missed my retighten appointment today and I can't blame anyone, fuss at anyone, beat up anyone but myself.

You see I am home sick, yep 104 fever, respiratory infection, stuck in the bed taking antiboitics. Yuck!

But Amour, my consultant is great she re-scheduled me for next Saturday.

So even though I am sick as I don't know what, my Sisterlocks are still cute! LOL

Cough, cough, bye

Inspiration comes through many avenues. A song, a childs cry, the loss of a loved one, or the scent of a rose.

One of my inspirations is my husband. He has supported me 100% through my journey. As I transitioned from perm to natural he was my number 1 fan, my cheering section, the base to my boom.

As I enter into this New Year and I reflect on my hopes for the future, I see they are the same as my past. I hope for continued peace, joy in viewing a sunrise, and laughter at the sound of a childs joy.

Certainly there will be struggles, that is a part of life. However the structure of my charecter will help determine how I handle various situations.

I hope that this year brings clarity to my future vision, I seek to have a business of my own, but I must discover where my passion lies. There are so many things I want to do, but I feel there isn't enough time to accomplish it all. At 48 I have begun to want a schedule that runs by time clock. It want to find that thing that I am passionite about, that thing that causes me to lose track of time as I work. The thing that when I wake I am excited to get busy and get involved.

Perhaps I am looking for something that will leave a legacy of my life. A tangible history that I was here.
