Peggy told me “Gray hair always looks better on someone else”  She’s sooo right!!! So you ask “Are you Courageous? (among other adjetives) No, just exhausted by the tedious job of coloring my hair. I have been dyeing it for so many years and immediately right after I color it my roots start to show up. I have been thinking for quite some time to let my hair grow gray or whatever color it is – I thiNk I waNt thAt – Hmmm.

Last year I invested in a wig, my thought was I would let my roots grow out while I wear my wig.  One of my sons (Carlos) asked if I was going to surprise everyone one day and just stop wearing the wig.  OK, I did not want to do that, also my sister’s dog barked at me whenever I would take my wig off (LOL).

I decided to go blond and shock people right away, that way my roots will be less noticeable 😉  My hair dresser tried hard to get me silver blond (or platinum blond) but she couldn’t do it without damaging my hair.

My hair is growing these wonderful shades of silver and I think I like it.  I intend to give it a real try.  Oh, why do we care so much? or should I say Why do “I” care?

I walked into my favorite beauty salon to get a trim.  While I was sitting there someone mention the wax room, and I thought “Ha, I need my eyebrows waxed”.  I don’t do this on a regular basis, maybe once a year – the rest of the time my eyebrows need attention 😉   So the owner’s niece proceeded to wax my eyebrows.  She burned me!!! it wasn’t bad (I thought), but she kept rubbing the burn part over and over again, I’m not sure what she was doing but it was hurting.  I went ahead, paid for the services and left.

By the time I got to the car it was burning bad.  I told my husband I needed to go to a drug store and talk to a pharmacist.  The pharmacist told me to get some Aloe and put a little tiny bit under the eyebrow so that the Aloe would not get in the eye.

I did not tell the owner of the salon what happened, but I’m being advice to call her and tell her.  I don’t want to get her niece in trouble, but I think I better.  I would not want anyone else to get burn and get the salon in serious trouble.  Now if it would have happened to anyone else I care about I would have been the first one to go back and talked with the owner.  This makes me feel very uncomfortable.

The ladies from Clovis Hills Community Church did an amazing job putting this retreat together.  Kim McManus was the Conference Speaker and shared from her heart.  “Kim leads SHE Community – a force of women at Mosaic who desire to voice a message of faith, hope, and love to Los Angeles and to all women on this planet. They are passionate about Jesus Christ and His transformation of lives”

We were in Atlanta last week-end for our friend Oscar’s Memorial Service.  Left Fresno on Sunday, Memorial Service on Monday and we returned home on Tuesday.  The only thing with this itinerary is that I wanted to see the inauguration of our President Barak H. Obama and everything that follow and everything that was before the inauguration.

I saw a lot.   We were in the Delta Crown Rooms in Atlanta (2 hrs.), Denver (??? I don’t think we made it to the Crown Room in Denver or did we?) and Salt Lake City (3 hrs.)  In Atlanta we saw the inauguration.  There were so many people watching, people from all over the world, some couldn’t believed that we, the United States of America, had an African American President.  

When Rick Warren came up to pray, I was so proud to know him.  I almost said to the people around me, “I know Rick and Kay Warren” but I didn’t (Erika and Rodger you should be proud of your aunt).  His prayer said so much.  I loved it!

It was a historical day and I’m glad I was able to witness the day even thought it was in bits and pieces.

We (the USA) have so much expectations on our new president, but like my blog friend Crystal Renaud puts it “He is only human …” if you have time, please go to her post and read what she wrote, it’s worth your time.

Our President needs our prayers, and it’s our privilege to pray for him.

 Pray for rulers and for all who have authority so that we can have quiet and peaceful lives full of worship and respect for God.                 1 Timothy 2:2

Have a great week-end.
