Aloha mai e na hoa -
Today is mother's day! It was a beautiful day for our 'ohana. I woke up to the sweet smell of fried rice, my favorite breakfast! Opened beautiful gifts and meaningful cards, especially the homemade kine! We went to church as an 'ohana and heard more about the mother's in our lives and in this world who make a difference. I am so blessed to have been raised by a selfless, loving, nurturing mother who supported me and continues to support me in all that I do. It is her example that I reflect upon as a mother today. I am blessed to be a mother and hold that as the most sacred duty I have on this earth. I once heard a wise man say, "the greatest work you will ever do will be the work you do within the walls of your home". He continued by saying, "no earthly success can compensate for failure in the home". Pololei no 'o ia! He is absolutely correct. To all the mother's out there working hard, sacrificing, struggling and even stumbling at times . . . Happy Mother's Day!

ʻĀmene to that Anake!!

In church today, Tu'imana shared a talk about his makuahine and said "My mother may not be perfect but she's the perfect mother for me." Even though that was a short sentence, it hit me like a brick wall how true it is.

Makuahine is like that too. No matter how many times she worries about us, scolds us, grounds us, lectures us, or even tolerate us, she has always eternally loved us with all of her heart and beyond!! Like a Japanese person said: "A child will never repay the debt to their parents unless they have children of their own." So I think my future children will be double kolohe then!! ^_^

Mahalo for your mana'o and malama pono!!
