Yesterday I had a friend over and she braided Sami's hair which she has been wanting to get done since last summer when one of our interns got her hair done. It was such a good setting for me after the "bigger" nigerian setting I had the day before. I shared with her my day and she just gave me more insight into nigerian women and mothers and basically listened to me with a kind, kind heart.
I am grateful that days come and go and emotions come and go because a new day brought friendship, encouragement and a new hair style.
Sami has a pretty smile, doesn't she?
