My 49th @ 42M on Lock Down



I won't remember my 49th as one of my happiest.
But I will remember it as a time of major personal growth,
despite how difficult, even painful it can be.
Who is this woman, BlaqKofi?
Well, she ain't no punk!

Your locks are gorgeous!!!
Happy 49th birthday!
I have been viewing your blog for about a year now. Your site is well put together and your pics are beautiful. I really enjoyed seeing the ones of your family and wedding. I am new to the sisterlocks family. My sisterlocks birthday is 11-27-08 @ 1:05 a.m. It is pleasure leaving a comment on the famous BlaqKofi blogsite. Check out my pics and tell me what you think... honestly. I know that you will.
Sincerely,
LadyButterfly

Well Happy Birthday to you! I came across your site when I googled "sisterlocks" and I have enjoyed seeing your journey. I can say that you have given me motivation to get my own sisterlocks. Your hair is gorgeous. And you keep it up so well. Continue to keep the faith, despite what obstacles you may face. Its always a blessing to see another bday. Did I mention, you look great to be 49? No joke :D

Happy Belated Birthday! You look marvelous...

Jenn said...

Even though you say it wasn't your happiest, in the midst of growth it can be quite painful. But in the meantime, be joyful anyhow, love hard anyhow, pray without ceasing and always remember that there is a reason for the growth !!! Love you and Happy Belated Birthday !!!!

Happy Birthday!

I love your locs and your blog posts - very informative and inspiring. Yours was one of the main blogs that helped me make my decistion to get Sisterlocks.
I may have to ask about the color you use when I'm ready to color mine - I love your color and your hair looks so healthy.
Peace & Blessings!

Happy birthday. I am sorry it is not a happy one. Personal growth is sometimes painful but you will always be better when you come out the other side.

Happy 49th... though you've been tried in the fire this year. I know, you are coming out as pure gold-- mind, body & spirit!!

DiVA_La Reine said...

I typed up a comment about how great it must be to reach your 49th MONTH with locks then I re-read the title. Oh my the Lord has bestowed many blessings upon you, you're beautiful and in radiates from the visuals you post down to every last word you write. Mrs.Blaq this year might have had some trying times but the years to come are brighter than the past.

Happy Birthday!!

Happy Belated Birthday, I wanted to thank you for your blog. I just had sisterlocks installed on the 30th of December and seeing your beginning pictures has given me so much confidence. I'm sure that other sisterlock wearers will agree with me on how important your blog has been. Your dedication has not gone unnoticed.
