[Dearest] Langalethu


We met at EQ 6 days after I got to Grahamstown as a first year. I liked you instantly, mostly because you had soo much positive energy around you and were such a happy and confident person.
I still can't believe you're gone. I wish I had more time to get to know you better because you're one of the most amazing and genuine people I've met in Grahamstown.
I cherished the beautiful sessions we had, although they might not have been enough. You were a good person and friend. I will miss your smile, your laughter and your enthusiasm. I will forever be honoured that I got a chance to meet you, and most of all, you will never be forgotten.
There's nothing that really comforts or heals the wounds, but having had the priviledge of knowing you has made my life far better than I ever had a right to expect and I'm closer to God all thanks to you.

I'll keep your family in my heart and in my prayers. Rest in Peace my dear friend, till we meet again. Love, Anna-Rosa

[Heavenly Father]

Heavenly Father, help us remember that the jerk who cut us off in
traffic last night is a single mother who worked nine hours that day
and is rushing home to cook dinner, help with homework, do the laundry
and spend a few precious moments with her children.

Help us to remember that the pierced, tattooed, disinterested young man who can't make change correctly is a worried 19-year-old college student, balancing his apprehension over final exams with his fear of not getting his student loans for next semester.

Remind us, Lord, that the scary looking bum, begging for money in the same spot every day is a slave to addictions that we can only imagine in our worst nightmares.

Help us to remember that the old couple walking annoyingly slow through the store aisles and blocking our shopping progress are savoring this moment, knowing that, based on the biopsy report she got back last week, this will be the last year that they go shopping together.

Heavenly Father, remind us each day that, of all the gifts you give us, the greatest gift is love.
It is not enough to share that love with those we hold dear. 
Open our hearts not to just those who are close to us, but to all humanity.

Let us be slow to judge and quick to love.

Too many people grow up. That's the real trouble with the world, too many people grow up. They forget. They don't remember what it's like to be twelve years old.

Mrs Knowles' "devil" red hair

I feel like Beyonce jacked Rihanna on her new hairdo, but I guess that's the new trend. Either way, they both look good in it. Thumbs up Bey!!!

"We wonder why black & white photos
capture our soul. I think it's because without
colour, we aren't drawn to make-up, or the colour
of our eyes, or our hair, or how tan our skin is.
Black & white captures the innocence on one's
face & their vulnerability. The glow comes from
the inside, brightening our eyes, our skin, and
smile. It grabs the truth that liberates us."

[Best] Friends.

It's the people you hug and never want to let go.  The people who give you more than you give to them.

The people you can be "silly" around. It's those in your photographs with genuine light shining through their eyes and smile.

The people you haven't seen in years, but haven't changed at all.

The people who truly understand who you are. The people you
cry about. The ones you live for.

 The people who take your breath away.

These are my best friends and sisters. I love you.
Always believe in God because there are some questions that cannot be answered by Google.

"We've got to make a decision whether we're going to be ruled by our flesh and
live average mediocre lives or whether we're going to be disciplined so we can live a life of excellence."

Hair today. Gone tomorrow.

When done correctly hair weaves are enhancers. That's all. No one is making any great political statement by getting a hair weave. If you have thin hair, you can have thick hair in no time and you can have straight hair, curly hair, or wavy hair in a flash. It is a great way to allow your own hair a
break. And it can be taken off and put back on at anytime.

A gorgeous hair weave effect can be produced with hair extensions, quality
human hair, hair braiding, hair wigs and a good hairstylist.
There's Indian remy hair, Brazilian, Malaysian, Peruvian and Chinese hair. My personal
favourite is Indian and it costs my parents about R2000 to buy the weave and
have it put in, but that's NOTHING compared to what a lot of people pay to get their hair done.

What is it, you ask? Why can't we just love the hair we were born with? With the number of "tortures" many of us have subjected our hair to, it's a miracle that we have any hair left at all. With the dominance of weaves, we neglect our God-given hair and it has become common place for many of us. I know a few girls that have
literally hidden their hair away under a weave or wig for so long and have just given up on it and sworn allegiance to hair weaves for life. But it doesn't necessarily have to go down like that.

When the time finally comes when you accept yourself and your natural hair
texture that is when you will feel you are beautiful. The most amazing part
about finally reaching that point is the sense of liberation that comes with
it. But time is of the essence in order to reach the point where you feel
beautiful and liberated with your natural hair texture and yourself overall.
