MY BEAUTIFUL LIFE!!!

MY INTRO

ALOHA AND WELCOME TO MY PERSONAL BLOG!!! I THOUGHT WHY NOT SHARE MY PERSONAL GAINS & STRUGGLES THAT LIFE PUTS OUT TO EACH AND ONE OF US. I FEEL THAT THROUGH THE GIFT OF "GIVING & SHARING", THERE IS NO WAY BETTER THAN START THIS BLOG WHICH IS ALL ABOUT ME, MY OHANA (FAMILY), HOALOHA (FRIENDS), AND EVEN ENEMIES WHICH ARE THE VERY ONES I NEED TO LOVE AND ACCEPT.


I'LL SAY THIS STRAIGHT UP, I DON'T HOLD BACK MY FEELINGS FOR ANYONE AND IT'LL COME OUT OF MY MOUTH ON HOW I FEEL ABOUT YOU AND OTHERS. I DON'T GO BEHIND ANYONE'S BACK AND START RUMOURS WITH HOPES THAT IT WILL CIRCLE AROUND AND FINALLY HIT ITS TARGET. WHY TAKE THE LONG ROUTE WHEN I CAN GO STRAIGHT TO THE POINT. PERSONALLY, I THINK THAT IS THE "REAL" WAY OF LIVING LIFE, "BE REAL" AT ALL TIMES EVEN WHEN THE WORLD IS WATCHING.


ON THE OTHER NOTE, "I AM" THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PERSON IN THE WHOLE UNIVERSE FROM THE WAY "I SEE IT". I AM NOT SPEAKING FROM OTHER PEOPLE'S FEEDBACK OR "CONCEITEDNESS". "THIS IS" WHAT I CHOOSE TO SEE MYSELF EVERYDAY WHEN I WAKE UP FROM MY BED AND THANK "AKUA" (GOD) FOR GIVING ME ONE MORE DAY TO LIVE, REGARDLESS OF REGRETS FROM THE "YESTERDAYS" TO THE FEARS OF "TOMMOROWS".


IN MY EYES, LIVING A "BEAUTIFUL LIFE" CAN ONLY BE ATTAINED BY "CHOICE" AND IT REQUIRES "INTEGRITY", "HONESTY", "UNCONDITIONAL ACCEPTANCE", "FORGIVENESS" AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, "LOVE".


AS MY BEAUTIFUL ANCESTORS HAVED ALWAYS BELIEVED:


'Ike aku, 'ike mai, kokua aku kokua mai; pela iho la ka nohana 'ohana.


WHICH MEANS, RECOGNIZE OTHERS, BE RECOGNIZED, HELP OTHERS, BE HELPED; SUCH IS A FAMILY RELATIONSHIP.


SO ONCE AGAIN, "WELCOME TO MY BEAUTIFUL LIFE!!!"

HAU'OLI LA HANAU A VICKIE!!!

ALOHA EVERYONE!!!

SO THIS PAST WEEKEND WAS A REUNION, A SURPRISED BIRTHDAY, AND ST. PATRICK'S DAY CELEBRATION.

SO LETS JUMP RIGHT INTO THE FUN!!!

AS SOON AS I GET OFF AT WORK FROM THE JAIL, I WENT HOME AND STARTED PACKING UP AND HEAD ON OVER TO THE AIRPORT TO CATCH THE NOON FLIGHT TO ANCHORAGE, ALASKA.

AS SOON AS I LANDED MY FRIEND, LAMON PICKED ME UP AND HEADED TO SEVERAL PARTY SUPPLIES STORES TO GO PICK BIRTHDAY & ST. PATRICKS DAY PROPS.






AFTER THAT WE HEADED TO THE FLOWER SHOP, FLOWERS BY MARIE WHERE I PREVIOUSLY ORDERED SEVERAL DAYS AGO TO HAVE A SURPRISED FLOWER AND BALLOON DELIVERY TO VICKIE AT HER WORKPLACE.



THIS IS WHAT VICKIE RECEIVED AT WORK AND SHE HAD NO CLUE WHO IT WAS FROM...  LOL!!!

SO I WANTED TO GO AND VISIT THE FLOWER SHOP AND MEET THE OWNER TO GIVE MY THANKS AND ALOHA.


MARIE IS AN AMAZING WOMAN AND WAS SO FRIENDLY AND ACCOMMODATING.  I DECIDED TO GET MORE FLOWERS TO SURPRISE VICKIE THE NEXT DAY.


IF YOU EVER NEED FLOWERS FOR JUST ABOUT ANY OCCASION, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND, FLOWERS BY MARIE.  SHE DOES DELIVERY TOO.
