Growing Up

It's been an amazing weekend and I'm growning up! Problems seem to increase when I'm after something good. But I've learned that I need to just breathe and know all will work itself out. I was able to participate in a fireside last night through our choir Divine Heritage. It was cold, I was in a sugar high from all day candy rush and the day was long. And though I didn't take the opportunity to invite my family to this particular fireside. Oddly enough they were all that was on my mind. As we sang of Christ, Testified and learned and I found myself in gratitude that I could say I have a family. One that loves me, supports me and people I can turn too even when I'm at my worse. I have a family.. So during this Christmas season I would hope we could take a second and appreciate those around us. Totally speaking out loud as a reminder to myself to appreciate my own family.. Becuz though at times we feel we can't live with them in all reality we really couldn't live without them. I wish you all a MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Merry Christmas Overland :) And a Happy New Year to come! I read through your posts and am happy you have found a way to develop and live your passion (helping Polynesian youth). I think that is pretty AWESOME and a wonderful path to pursue! I am friends with Nando too and am also looking forward to the great things he will be doing with his gifts. I did see the piece he did of your brother. It was very nicely done. And I am sure it is awesome to have that made in his memory. I saw you list Su'apaia as one of your family names. I too am Su'apaia. I come from the line of Saimasina through his daughter Alamoni. She is my great grandmother. I just wanted to stop by and say hi. I think its great to meet other Pacific islanders in blogland :) LOLOL I look forward to reading more of your posts. Until then, have a wonderful Christmas Holiday! Sincerely, Siana
