Inspired by…the way of Aloha

My Bliss list runneth over this week. I have a lot of Aloha in my life right now.

Most believe Aloha is just a greeting, but the word is a way of life for most living here on the islands. Here, Aloha is an attitude, guidance towards living  a certain way of life ~ the Aloha spirit.

A, ala, watchful, alertness
L, lokahi, working with unity
O, oia’i’o, truthful honesty
H, ha’aha’a, humility
A, ahonui, patient perseverance

For us, it is a time to reconnect as a family. Time to reconnect with ourselves, regenerate and reflect. A time to sit back and relax.

A time to fill all of the senses. A time to feed the soul ~ soulfood.

All my senses are stimulated here. The morning birds, the sound of crashing waves, sweet papaya, warm rays, fully saturated flowers.. color!

My daughters Facebook status update ~ home, sweet home…

…that makes me very happy…

Please join us over at Livs blog with your own little Bliss list. By sharing, it gives each of us a chance to reflect on all the different things that others feel grateful for and a chance to appreciate all that you have.

Happy weekend to all! I promise I will get back into this whole bloggin’ world soon…I miss it!

Very thankful that I decided to put the alcohol inks in a plastic baggy in my luggage….

    • Thank you Alexa! Had a little laugh when I read quickly “alcohol misadventures” and wondered if you had known I was having a glass of wine while posting:)) Trust me when I say that you do not want to read the warning signs on the back of the alcohol inks…beware!
