You Can't Win Them All

“Even the smallest victory is never to be taken for granted. Each victory must be applauded...”
~Audre Lorde

Mom- Your hair is looking much better. It looks more curly like your hair used to or maybe I'm just now getting used to it.

Sophia, Naturally- Thanks mom! I'm happy it's looking better to you.

Mom- It doesn't look as "kinkybe" as it used to look. Maybe you'll get it together before I die.

Sophia, Naturally- Quietly smiles and is reminded of mom's earlier request to have bone straight hair at mom's funeral in the very far future...changes subject
