Vaccines, grit and Areca nuts

Got the mother her first vaccine shot. No side effects. Am glad that she has strong genes (hopefully me too) and has no fear ( something I need to still imbibe). Also began something new which I want to keep doing before I even tell myself that am doing it. Yes also this is something…
