Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's day to all you, Fathers and (Mothers who are "fathers") .

I am so glad that "The Man" is such a great father and Daddy to Big Sis and Lil Sis. In regards to the care of their hair and my natural hair, he had always been supportive. I get questions like.. "Was your spouse in support of you going natural?" And the answer to this is "YES".  When I was doing my Big Chop, he was unable to be present, however, he watched me do the chop via Skype.  Yeah!! It was so cool to share the experience with him.

I am so blessed to have a father, who has encouraged me in every aspect of my life to be the woman I am today. When I decided to relax my hair at the age of 13, I went up to my father and asked him for permission. He did not want me to do it, but he gave me the OK with a warning, "If your hair falls off, don't come CRYING to me!". When he came to visit me while I was transitioning back to natural hair, he was VERY happy. He loved all my transitioning hairstyles. One day, he said to me, "You look beautiful, never put that relaxer back into your hair". I reassured him that I would not. I was very happy and thankful for his support.

How are you celebrating Father's Day?
