|Mom & Dad at their 50th wedding anniversary celebration 2 years ago|
It was amazing to me that my mother was concerned about something that meant nothing. A few years ago, she had major surgery and spent a month in the hospital. Afterwards, she went through a long recovery period. My father was by her side every step of the way through some of the most difficult times they've ever experienced. Did she really need to worry about my father's reaction to her hair?
I'm known for being a little too blunt at times, but I get it from my daddy, so my mom doesn't mind :-) My parents are both over 70 and have been married for over 50 years. Now, it's cute that my mother still wants to look good for my father and it's understandable that he may have a particular style that he prefers. However, it was more understandable that it was time for her to stop using chemicals that were burning her scalp every six weeks. It's also more understandable that real love knows no texture - real love sees the inner beauty and not just the outer shell.
As women, we want to look good to our men but if your guy no longer finds you attractive because he prefers straight hair, then he is too heavily focused on frivolous things. He needs to go and find the straight hair he desires, which will allow you to clear the way for a brother who will appreciate all that you have to offer including your glorious crown.
