Whew!!! I'm Baaaaackkkkk!

 


I had to take an unwanted extended break from blogging because of an addition to my work load.  But I'm baaaaaacccckkkkk!!! lol :) My friend Sha' sent me the picture above that I just HAD to share with you all!  It pretty much sums up why I went natural and despite the negative comments, (which are very few,but still exist) I am STAYING natural! I absolutely love it!
  Currently, I am teaching genetics to my class.  They had an activity the helped them to get to know their peers better (genetically speaking).  One question was do you have naturally curly hair.  And many (most of African descent) did not know that their hair was naturally curly.  I had a conversation with them about how "others" had led us to believe for so long that there was something wrong with the texture of our hair.  I gave them an explanation of why our hair was the way it was and that we are unique because of it.  If our African ancestors had straight hair their heads would have LITERALLY fried in the Saharan sun!  And for that reason, if no other, we have to realize that we are fearfully and WONDERFULLY made! *smooches*
