This post over at Black Girl Long Hair Online has ended Happy Black Girl Day on a good note for me.

The site held a contest celebrating women with natural hair and the supportive men who love them for who they are in all their kinky, curly, untamed beauty.

From the site:

What with all the recent talk of single black women and triflin’ black men, I thought it was time to inject a lil’ positivity into the situation.

I’ll drink to that!

Some of the notes with the photos made me teary eyed. Not everyone has a support system in this journey. I don’t know what the future holds for me and the man in my life. However, right here in this moment as I begin this journey, I feel fortunate that he got my back. He randomly asked me how my hair was doing  just this morning!
