More hair

Today I washed and braided my oldest 2 daughters hair. They both have very different textures. Destiny's pattern is a little looser and her hair tends to get dry quicker. Bria's hair is just like mine, enough said. On top of that Bria is tender headed so it takes about 3-4 hours depending on the style to wash and braid their hair. Here are 4 pics.

This is Bria's hair stretched to show the length.

This is her hair up close so you can see the texture.

This is Destiny's hair stretch.

I ended up putting their hair in box braids.

My hair dresser washed, blow dried, flat ironed and braided Kaliyah's hair for me. She has very soft and wavy hair. Here is a pic.

It is a chore doing all three but the hard work it paying off. Q

Happy Thanksgiving

I am so thankful for God blessing me to see another day.
For all of my friends and family.
For my life, health, and strength.
For all the blessings I have.
I know it didn't have to be this way and I am thankful for everything including all of you who read this.
I took some pics as I was cooking so I could do some step by step tutorials. Here is a pic of some of the food I cooked. The sweet potato pies, the buttermilk biscuits, and the pineapple cream cheese frosting are missing from the pic. I was too tired to take another on. I love all of you!!! Q

Haters are some of the most important people in your life

I want to say thank you to my haters. Some people would suggest I ignore them but I want to say how important they have been to me and my life.

Thank you:
To the so called friends who lied on me.
To the people who talked about me.
To the people who used me.
To the ones who said I would never be anything.
To the ones who doubted me.
To the ones who spoke ill about me.
To the ones who tried to kill my spirit.
To the ones who abused me.
To the ones who wished the worst for me.

Thank you.
If it wasn't for you, I never would have hit rock bottom.
If it wasn't for you, I never would have cried.
If it wasn't for you, I never would have realized how much I needed God.
If it wasn't for what you did, I never would have gotten saved.
If it wasn't for you, I never would have realized the greatness that was in me.
If it wasn't for you, I wouldn't be where I am today.
I wouldn't be a great mother, a great wife, a great friend.
You taught me how not to be.
You made not want to be anything like you.
I am everything you are not and the best is yet to come.

To all of my haters....

I'm pretty already

I read something that made me think of something funny that happened with Bria. One day I took her to the hair salon to get her hair washed and trimmed. I was up first and when my beautician called her so she can sit in the chair, Bria replied "why, I'm pretty already". She was only 3 years old at the time but it is still funny to me to this day.

Her statement was so simple but so true. She was completely happy with the way she looked and thought we were crazy to want to do something extra. In life sometimes we just try to do too much to feel accepted. No I am not saying we shouldn't take care of ourselves, pamper ourselves, or do things to make us feel good. We should not do things for the sake of other people. If you are a good person deep down, show respect and love for others, and treat people the way you want to be treated and people still won't accept you, then it is their loss. You are already pretty just the way God made you!!! Q
