Aloha & A Hui Hou AMANDA!

Throughout time Hawaiians have expressed 'aloha' and feelings of 'ohana' (family) in all they do.

'Aloha' means so many things... Hello, Goodbye, Love. It has also been associated with exchanging the 'breath' of another. Which brings the meaning of Aloha to an even more deeper meaning than something that is said so flippantly. When 'Aloha' is spoken from the very depths of the heart and the 'breath of another'  is given, there is a bonding that takes place that nothing can sever. This is the feeling we have for 'our' Amanda.

Today was a joyous day at work. Our dear Amanda has enlisted in the Navy and will be leaving soon to enter into a new phase in her life. While at the ASYMCA, she served the children of active duty military parents with skill, ingenuity, and much love. The children, the parents, and those of us left behind will miss her.

We are so proud of her and we all know she's gonna be GREAT at what she does. Our country is so blessed to have her serving where many can not!

When someone leaves either for a short or long time we often say "A Hui Hou" Which means... until we meet again.

Keep in touch Amanda!!! WE LOVE YOU!!!
