2016

First post this new year.  10 days after and finally have the time to think straight, exhale and focus.  From day one, I was in and out of the hospital.  Husband had surgery for his Chrons and son Leli tore his ACL and had to have surgery of all days, on the 31st.  Momma Peta was sick also, so in between three rooms delivering, soothing and disbursing of medications.  Eventually, Momma Peta ended up at the ER and in remission currently from her sickness.  In addition to this, before my husband was hospitalized, we started running this Polynesian Hot Food Plates.  It's has always been my husband's dream to run his own restaurant.  This is not exactly a restaurant but it's a start.  At first I didn't want to do it because of his health.  Seeing how much he wanted it though changed my mind and now I'm discovering I can do magic in the kitchen area.  Who would have thought? 

Life has never been so precious to me now that I'm airborne mid-lifing.  I pray that I have taught my children well to continue our family lineage with honor and dignity.  To continue being God-fearing and God loving people because this very existence is a gift from God Himself.  2015 was a year of realization and self-discovery.  2016 will be a year of success for we have been given opportunities that was never available to us before.  So many people have helped us along the way.  Now it's our turn to help others.  Balancing my daily schedule is very hectic.  Between watching the two grandbabies, delivering kids to school, cooking and taking care of my patients at home, I feel like a walking zombie ready to collapse.  I have to take of myself to be able to take care of others and that means balancing Spiritually, Physically, Mentally and Emotionally.  I haven't even begin to do my personal scripture study because I'm so exhausted by the end of the day.

I'm thrilled for a lot of reasons and I'm praying that one of them will include my son Leli getting married this year.  What a wonderful event that would be.  In November my son Eld. Mahonrai Teancum Toki will be returning from his mission.  I have to get ready for his return.  I've missed him so much and love him so much.  The only ones that are giving me a headache are my three youngest girls.  Boy, with bickering, screaming, singing, volleyball, basketball and all, they can drive me crazy. 

Bring on 2016.  There are great goals to be reached this year.
