Kamalani has not received any gifts yet
My mom and Tutu were best buddies, some may argue that it's serendipitous for Mom and Tutu to begin their eternal dance within a year of eachother. Missing Mom is an everyday occaision, now that Tutu is no longer with us, it's surreal to imagine how life will continue and how our lives will change or evolve as other leaves decend to make room for new life. I live everyday, however, knowing that these individuals have left such an indelible impression that it creates the very person that I am. I am forever grateful for such a gift. I love and miss you Mom and Tutu!
Here's a picture of Tutu and I while she was teaching hula and another picture of Tutu on the Merrie Monarch stage. Kane’s dark billowy polohiwa cloud has hovered and taken twice in the matter of a year and a few days. Two powerful women that have been my idols since birth are no longer my physical advisors on this uneven and beaten path of life. I am, however, in constant awe of life and how its euphoric moments are crumbled through the realities of what is taken from you by time’s own passing. Yet I continue to find that even in what was perceived as my deepest fear, strength still thrived. From such great loss and pain, a renewed sense of strength was there for me to recognize and collect at my own pace. Life has its funny ways of reminding you that nothing is ever permanent, that life itself is never permanent. Nevertheless as the sun rises every morning, so rises our security and certainty that another day will go as planned per our palmOne Treo’s schedule…just a word of forethought perhaps, enjoy every moment of life…live, love, laugh, cry, accept…life is but a blink in eternity, make it worth something to this world. Aloha!
