Over 25 years ago I met Rain at college and we decided we would be sisters for life. Today as I battle one of the worst days fighting #chemotherapy Unable to eat or even lift my head to drink water, I cannot help smiling. I still have my amazing sister in my heart and in my life. Rain shaved her head with me, in solidarity, and looking at her clear, deep, blue eyes I thank God for her love and friendship. For all the conversations and for everything we have been through in our separate lives. The grief, the joy. Here we are so many years later, survivors. Without our hair our faces shine out…nothing hidden…and I must say I like what I see. Two sisters. Empowered. Loving, giving…with honesty, sincerity and strength in our faces. Many people have wept after seeing my bald head, I wonder why.. I must say, I rather like the shape of it. People throw ideas at me of how I can hide it, scarves, hats, wigs… when all I want to do is feel it under my hands and get to know my face and head better, the face and head I hid behind my mane of hair. And me…I'm getting to know me, slowly. I'm getting to heal me…very slowly…I'm learning now to be stronger. How to say no, how to make boundaries, how to protect myself, and how to love myself. My work waits for me. The children, my inspiration, the little hero's and survivors I have worked for all my life wait for me. They will get a far more stronger and more empowered Nado. InshaAllah Creativity waits for me. Love waits for me. Energy, passion, activism, being a voice, hope, change all wait for me. But for now…I have to try and get this stewed apple down my throat. This too is living and surviving. One day at a time na. And I have such beautiful companions by my side! My siblings, my loves, my Nico, my friends…my Ma.. You all know who you are… Thank you. Thank you so much! Alhamdolillah 🙏 #perspectives #healing #beautifulsisters
