Mother and daughter doctor-heroes: Hawa Abdi + Deqo Mohamed

Mother and daughter doctor-heroes: Hawa Abdi + Deqo Mohamed

I found this video so inspiring on so many levels, as a woman, as a mother, as a patient and as a human being. If these woman, this mother and her daughters can treat 300 people a day, complete 20 surgeries and manage 90,000 people when others fled to far off lands... If these woman can change their world in a country filled with war and poverty, what's the least we could do in a land of opportunity? Will we gather or flee? This video came in God's time, a time when I needed to be lifted up to fight. It's so strange to me and wonderful at the same time. 'What ever your's seeking you.' I have said to both my children in the last couple of days... "That's how reveloutions are started." FAITH. I'll explain later in the post I intended to leave today. For now if you could do me the favor of soaking this story in and passing it on...consider it 'paying it forward.' I hope your day is abundantly blessed today. XOXO Keke

Ok...I promised myself that this morning I wasn't going to wait for my med's to kick in and I was going to wake up take them and head straight for the shower....the truth of the matter is the med's aren't working well anyway and every morning this week I have stressed myself out by almost being late for court....thank you God....the angels on my bumpers made way for me and I managed, some mornings by the skin of my teeth to be on time.... I told the judge in my hardship claim that early mornings weren't a possibility for me. The problem may lie in what is considered 'early', my 'early' now is any appointment before 11:00 a.m. is nearly impossible for me to make. It's frustrating to me. I have been an early riser my entire life. 'Early bird catches the worm girl' has had to redefine her expectations of herself. None the less, since I rec. the last round of toxin I have been awake every night every half hour. I'm exhausted. I'm hoping today will be my last day, we are to go into deliberation this afternoon, but this whole experience has been so unpredictable I don't know what to expect. And here I am, visiting the kingdom, waiting again...last night my neck went into a twist that was so severe I considered going through ER. I tried to call my neuro, but I got the after hour machine, all I really wanted was to leave a message for him so he would get it this morning and hopefully be able to help me today in between court. I couldn't bear the idea of the ER or the after hours on call, I hooked up my electrodes and wrapped my neck in heat. Eventually my neck muscles released themselves but this morning my neck is so sore it feels like some one held me by my head and flung my body around in circles. It doesn't help that I'm out of some of my meds, and I called my primary doc for refill and was promised a call back. No, I didn't get the call back, and I knew I wouldn't because of 'incompetent normal'. That's what I call one particular office person in Dr. M's office, if I get her on the phone I know it will take about four more days of calls before the doc even gets my msg. Anyways, I'm going to call both docs again this morning before court, some one has to help me before I start banging my head on the wall...ugh! But none of this is really what I wanted to share with you this morning, so what am I doing????

What I wanted to share is gratitude.... since Christmas I have come to a great appreciation for how many generous artsy people there are in this world! So many willing to inspire and share, I can only be filled with 'GRATITUDE'. Even on days when I'm not up to creating, I can surf and dream.... Speaking of 'Inspiration'...has anyone seen 'inspire co' ?
Amy has the cutest little inspiring blog....
I absolutely love visiting her site...and she publishes an 'e-zine' that is filled with all kinds of inspiration and loveliness....
In fact...she has a new one for spring coming out after Monday that you may want to check out... I for one am excited to have something to look forward to. Speaking of...what to you think about my new page? Not sure I'll leave it this way, it's not very 'cherry' but at least I'm making progress to unstick myself, right?

And some more love inspiration....images for you to cute is the little lover above?

And even though I haven't had breakfast yet....i so would eat the sundae above if I could wave my cherry wand and make it appear in front of me.

Here kitty, kitty... hmmm...I just had to share the above Valentine....the look on that cat's face makes me laugh...she looks so vicious...this maybe could be considered a passive aggressive vintage valentine? LOL!! that I have all of that off my chest... I can not procrastinate my shower any longer...
I hope you all have a blessed and abundant day today!! XOXO Keke

Sweet Valentine

I'm back in court today...hopefully this won't last much longer. Being a juror has left me with much to share about this experience...alas it won't be until this is all said and done. The spot in my neck that Dr. D missed unfortunately is still out of control. Ugh!
But on to happier things...
Love is in the air....
Valentines day is right around the corner...

I hope you can click on this to enlarge and print...they really are so adorable. Why don't they make Valentines like these any more??
I wish and pray that you are all abundantly blessed today.

Under Construction

I've decided to reinvent.
reinvent: re-in-vent; .v. 1. To make over completely.

My blog and my life. For well over a year now I have felt completely stuck. A precarious situation for a girl like me because it really isn't in my DNA. I feel like I've been lost in a dark forest. Why the sudden change. Not really so sudden. More of an awakening. To be continued... lets just say the events in my life seem to be pointing me in the direction of awakening and realizing that life is fragile, life is too short, and if my lucky, lucky stars have given me people to love and who love me back, and a new breath today, then it's up to me to make the very best of all of it. Let's just say yesterday was a pretty rough day that sent me running home wanting to throw my arms around AH and baby girl who was here waiting for me when I got home. I walked in my front door to hear and see them laughing hysterically and ...uh-hum...playing dress-up.... they were organizing my closets for me....
Ah...and I've been wanting to share with you some new vintage valentines I have found. I think if you click on the pic it should enlarge so you can print.... I hope...let me know.
Have a blessed day...XOXO Keke
