Our last Sunday at church, Kahalu'u Ward, Hawaii.
June 6, 2010
I loved the time we got to spend in the Kahalu'u ward.
The people were so warm and inviting, and I loved the atmosphere of family and tradition. I appreciated the time I spent serving in the nursery and the ladies I got to work with, they taught me so much about myself and being a Mom. Jason and I have been through a lot of ups and downs, and I am so thankful for the righteous and dedicated home teachers we had, I will never forget Brother Faga and the kind spirit he brought into our home every month. I am going to miss the big ward parties we used to have (with ALL the food) and the wonderful people we got to know. It is so hard to say goodbye.
On our last Sunday at church on the island, as is tradition, the ward sang Aloha 'Oe to us. The spirit is so strong and touching when I hear this song sung (in Hawaiian) and needless to say I had a million emotions and tears I was holding in that Sunday. Once again I feel so blessed for the time we got to spend in Hawaii, and so thankful.
ps. Our house smelled like flowers for days, from all our leis... I think we counted 45. I love Hawaii!
