Hand of Fatima
Hand of Fatima. Fatima is my middle name so I am
fascinated with its origin.
Those that don't got it, can't show
it. Those that got it, can't hide it.
Zora Neale Hurston
Picture me short, overweight, obviously a ma'am
not a Miss and crippled by Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS).
Yet, there is a certain something.
My mother used to say my grandmother's nose nearly
touched the ground, her AS was so bad.
Regardless, I have the something both my mother
and grandmother had.
A certain something that makes it easy to
laugh at myself and with others. To make new
friends and keep old friends. So so blessed.
