Hakuna matata

A dear friend and superb blogger is not feeling well. After her return from Africa, she has shown symptoms of an illness that specialists are still trying to figure out. A fast-moving network of mutual blogland friends from all over the globe is opeartive into making her healing process a quicker one, providing moral support, medical suggestions based on personal experience, down to offering words of assistance and hope for her prompt recovery.



She is so delicate and generous that she has felt the need to post a note on her blog to inform her readers that her silence was due to her illness, and not to be mistaken for being, I quote her, "an uncivilized blog dumdum." How could anyone who knows her, ever think such a silly thing?


Healing crystals are a great help...


I have spoken to her yesterday, and her voice is weak yet still sweet and angelic, as always. Through a constant exchange of emails and text messages, and her sweet post, she has informed us that she is feeling a bit better today, helped by antibiotics and probiotics. She is in the caring hands of a very good doctor, her recovering sister - who had initially shown similar symptoms - and her loving husband.



And here's a healing mantra for you too...



Our prayers are with you, beautiful Lori. Rest, replete and hang in there. The bug will be defeated, if not through medicine, by a potent wave of unfailing LOVE.








Ngiyakuthanda, sala kahle (I love you, stay well)

  10. Ah the collective consciousness - there I was, reading Geli's post and wondering how Lori was doing - having mentioned a few days ago that she wasn't feeling well. Thank you so much for the update, Lola - I will pop over to Lori's now and leave hugs and kisses.

  18. I don't mind what are the names or who's who but the human is so important to me without looking his/her nationality, race, color for skin. So I'll be keeping her in my prayers and positive feelings as well; you're NOT alone, Angelhearted Lola:)

    Have a buonissima fine weekend, ciao~
