Everything Is Everything

Things that make me go hmm & mmmm & ooooh & ahhhh...

This is my beautiful 6 y/o, Fatima.  While visiting with a family member on Saturday , they had Fatima’s locs of almost 4 yrs cut. Without the knowledge or permission of me or her father.  This family member doesn’t care for natural hair (locs especially) and has occasionally commented about Fatima’s hair  being unattractive. (I still don’t know how I’m not in jail right now.)  Aaaanyway, I’ve been really concerned about how this would affect her self-esteem but she’s such a trooper.  We’ve told her it was for the best anyway cause she had to do away with her baby hair,  now it’s time for her big girl hair to come in. Lol. On Monday she wanted to wear her sleeping cap to school because she was afraid of teasing. But they can’t keep my boo down cause with the beautiful weather we had yesterday,  she stepped out of the car  with her fly baby fro, turned to me with a confident smile and said “I FEEL like I look like mother nature! ” I couldn’t help but to give her a solid “YAAAAASSSSSSSS!” accompanied by the Tyra fierce finger wag. Lol. 

I love her so much!

starbucks (@starbucks) logo traces roots back to Africa.

Info via citizins (@citizins) 

When you see that Starbucks logo, you probably think the same thing as me: “There’s that ‘smiling mermaid’ logo, there must be some good, but overpriced, coffee nearby”. Well what isn’t known to the world is that this is a picture of Yemaya, also know through out West Africa and the Caribbean as Yemoja,Yemowo, Mami Wata, Janaína, LaSiren (in Vodou) is an Orisha – said to be a Goddess of the traditional Yoruba religion that was brought by the enslaved Africans of what is now Nigeria to the west. She is the patron of women, in particular, pregnant women. When slaves were transported across the ocean, it was said to be Yemaya who protected them on their journey and kept them safe. She is kind and giving. She takes a long time to anger but when she does, watch out, you have a hurricane on your hands. She is said to be the “mother whose children number as the fish in the sea” and that is why she is presented as a two-tailed mermaid.Yemaya is said to bring forth and protect life through all the highs and lows, even during the worst atrocities that can be suffered. She reminds women to take time out for themselves, to nurture their own needs and to respect their deserved position in life.

Happy Black History month everyone!

"She never asked for love
And she never asked
For happiness
She only ever asked
To hurt a little less
Everyday that she was here"
