That's the island greeting being sent to you on our last day in "paradise." Sad to leave such beauty, but the time spent with family was the most precious gift of all! And from the looks of it, lots of families were celebrating the 2019 holidays here too. I don't think anyone can go wrong in these parts of the world, sunny skies and a year round temperature of 82 degrees (water temp around 80 degrees), what's not to like?
Heading back on our last leg of the trip before arriving in Maryland, my reflection is that my heart is full and mahalo (thankful). Blessings all around this season, and if there is anything to take back besides the great family memories made here, is the spirit of aloha (hello, goodbye, love, peace and compassion.)
BSoleille! The bright side of aloha - living in harmony with people and land around us with mercy, sympathy, grace and kindness. This is the greatest takeaway (minus the errant sand in our bags, shoes and clothing!) The spirit of aloha is unique to Hawaii, but it is something we can all share anywhere in the world!
