Tomorrow will either lift the weight of the unknown or add to it. Tomorrow I will get the results of a test I hope will bring the clarity I've been seeking. Stay tuned. ...

Each year my family and I participate in the March for Babies walk to support premature babies and families. While we have our own reasons for marching we are reminded everyday of other reasons.
I found this article about Zoë Saldana and while she references a different charity the cause, reason and n outcomes are the same and should inspire others. Our first walk in 2008 was fun and because we believed in the cause but after we became personally invested.

30 Things About My Invisible Illness You May Not Know
Tuesday, August 25, 2015
Alhamdulilah, yesterday my beautiful little girl started her first day of forth grade. This will be her last year in Elementary and I'm so proud. This little girl fought her way from the back of the pack to being nominated for GT classes and missed it by very little on the test. She passed her STAAR test with flying colors and even though nervous I know she will do the same this year.
As my husband says I won't know what they can do until I let them try. So I've let her go even though she is my first baby and I'm trying so hard to hang on. She has started learning how to cook and has almost mastered laundry LOL. I can't wait to see the wonders Allah has in store for this wonderful little woman.

Being a black woman and knowing about all the stereotypes there are about black people and the racism that is very much alive and well, I've actually felt and experienced more hate as a Muslim within the last year than ever in my 30 years being black.
That being said I want to relay a story that will show you the very essence of Islam and the peace that it's meant to bring and instill in it's followers.
Uncle Hamza ibn ‘Abd al-Muttalib:
During the Battle of Uhud (625) a woman Hind bint Utbah hired a man to kill the prophet (PBUH) or some one close to him. This was an effort to retaliate to the deaths of her father and brother during the battle of Badr. Success! Her hired hand was able to kill the prophet's (PBUH) Uncle Hamza. But it wasn't enough that he was killed she had to rub it in and get in another jab at the prophet (PBUH). So after the battle she proceeded to eating (yes, eating) Hamza's liver out of his body.
Four years later (629) after the Muslims were successful in returning to Makkah Hind bint Uthbah's husband Abu Sufyan ibn Harb had converted to Islam, but she was afraid of what was going to be done to her for what she did to the prophet (PBUH). She thought she would have to be a shut in for the rest of her life to stay safe.
However in the three years (632) that the prophet (PBUH) lived after his return to Makkah he never so much as spoke a bad word against Hind bint Uthbah. She was allowed to live in peace and travel throughout the city without even an evil eye given from any Muslims. With the kindness she was shown Hind accepted the message of Islam and is now considered to be among the ranks of the companions of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

I am trying to get back my discipline before Ramadan, just one week away. So I'm going to play, "What I ate today". Because I know if others could see I would be embarrassed most days before today.
First off - Breakfast
We have a bowl with one banana and about a half cup of strawberries.

Hope everything works out. I'm sick and tired of feeling sick and tired :(.
This page is in memory of two people in my family that didn't survive the fight. My uncle Gene who died before I was born and was my moms best friend. And my Mother who died when I was 15. My mother found she had Lupus when she was working a job involving meat hooks and she got one stuck in her ankle. When the wound wouldn't heal she went to the doctor. This was day one. So many years later she was warned against having kids, but she had me anyways. I'm grateful for the fight she put up to stay and make me the person I am today and I'm happy that she is finally resting.

At first look I found two doctors that I liked at the hospital I want to be associated with that had good patient reviews. Well the first one I called doesn't treat Fibromyalgia so unless when I go I actually get diagnosed with Lupus I can't go to her again. And obviously she was at the top of my list since she was the first I called. UGGGH I didn't think this was going to be a cake walk, but good grief, cut me some slack.
