Last week we celebrated one my dearest friends in Doha, Alisa. She is solid as a rock and literally a prayer pillar for me and and many others here in the desert. Not to mention she knows how to have a good time and is pretty hilarious. We celebrated her birthday Moroccan style because last year all of the ladies below minus myself took a girl's trip to Morocco. My small tots kept me home but they kindly still included me in the special birthday lunch. Each of girl on the trip bought a Moroccan dress and thanks to Gena she bought 2 and shared with me. So it was indeed a costume party. Including my thick black eye liner :) We all helped to cook an amazing veggie/couscous lunch. It was such fun and made for wonderful memories!
Alisa and me
Yes, these chicas are all a little more "mature" than I am. And am I forever grateful!!! I have never in my life had more incredible mentors at my fingertips. Its absolutely no doubt divine timing. I think of them as my roots in Doha...like you have your roots back home where your mama is...well that's the capacity at which these women serve me!
