Moja means "one" in swahili



okay so this is a little random. i was wanting to post some pics of malachi with his cousins who just came to visit from new york. i saved these two to the desktop as mo&ja (for their initials) and then saw the work 'moja' and felt certain that was a word in swahili (the language in kenya where i lived when i was younger). so i looked it up online and sure enough 'moja' means 'one'

'umoja' means unity and 'pamoja' means togetherness...and i just thought that was so ironic (...or i am just a dork who has always loved acronyms). :)

fyi - i was going to post pictures of malachi with all three of his cousins when i realized that i failed to take pictures with all of them in it. i hope my big sis will come through on this one. i don't know why it's so difficult for me to remember to take pictures of important events...i hate that about myself.

You are so deep, Pamela. Deep... not a dork. :)
