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.
