When I received this email it brought tears to my eyes. This is why I do this, this is why I post as much as possible. I want to uplift, and encourage my loc'd beauties! Especially those Queens who don't have mature locs but are definitely on their way. I know that when I was a newly loc'd beauty I would have liked to have information, inspirational pictures, kind words, anything!
I live for feedback on here, I just wish my Queens chatted a bit more. Maybe you all are a bunch of silent Queens, somehow I doubt it! LOL
Anyway, I received the following email:
I want to first say a big THANK YOU so much for having this forum of information and support which allows me and others to have a place of support and acceptance. Thank you. For myself it is one of the few places on the planet that I can go and feel total acceptance and understanding of and for my chosen journey. If not for this site and others like it I would not have had the courage to continue my journey. Thank you. I logon to this site as a part of my daily "ritual" and view beautiful pictures of other locked sisters and read all of the information that I can get my hands on via your site as well as bookstores.
I am about 2 official months in, still awaiting the arrival of my first "bud", I am gonna have a bud party when it arrives. Upon your suggestion,Thank you, I have been faithfully going every 2 weeks for a light wash and retwisting session and I have made a nice stocking cap to sleep in that will keep my babies lint free and neat as they continue on their road to maturity.
I read and thoroughly enjoyed the article about Nerissa Irving, I have always wanted to know who she was and answers to all of the questions that you asked, she is sooo beautiful, her hair is nothing short of AMAZING!!! Her Mother gave her a priceless gift by making the decision to lock her hair at an early age and giving her the encouragement and self esteem to match. WOW.
Thank you again soooo much, this forum means so much to me.
No, thank you! Thank you for making ontheroadtoqueendom.com the success that it is meant to be, without you this site won't grow. I appreciate your kind words! Muah!
