An Update.

This post is to let the members know about my efforts to gather some money to donate towards the relief of our Muslim brothers and sisters of Myanmar. I have sold several of my paintings and painted cards, to people in town and around the country.
A big thank you to a few members who have sent me personal emails and others who have called me personally, to encourage me and boost my morale up.
I have had a great response of monetary donations from my Christian friends on my personal blogs… to the tune of almost $1000. .
Many friends from my little town, after reading my post on the social media have sent me checks of several hundreds. I am so grateful for every dollar that I am getting. God willing, by the end of next week I will close the column and send the money out to the Islamic Relief USA.
Again, thank you for your interest and encouragement in my efforts. Your support through words has been great.

About Zakiah

I write poetry and some fiction, have a book that was published in 2012. . . Stray Thoughts/Winged Words. I have four grandchildren, ages 16 and half to almost 16 months. I love the ocean, and grew up along the Indian Ocean in South India. I am a retired physician. Don't know much else to say. Thanks for reading. That has been my profile for so many years. My daughter Saadia a great poet and story teller, has two sons; the oldest grandson is now 21 years old, doing architectural engineering at Missouri S&T in Rolla MO. His younger brother is almost 16 and taking driving lessons seriously and is in High School. The other two grandsons, children of my son Sayeed, are 9 and 5. I have recently published another book titled Gulistan, A home of Flowers. It has stories and memories of my childhood and of a distant land which I still consider as my HOME., even though I have lived here in the US for more than fifty years. Hope to see you on my blog.
