2017 It's going to be a good year!
"Mom, did you bring any of my music?"
I text back, already humming with satisfaction: "What for? I thought you said you're not singing."
She text back: "Oh, I want to sing for uncle Tevisi."
"Oh yeah, then may be you could sing Karaoke".
"No mom, I want you to play".
Yup that's a typical conversation when she changes her mind from "not singing", to "singing". She's so feisty and finicky. Always changing her mind but I love my Silly girl for that.
We had so much fun. Our Livai family Siua and Irene took us out on Saturday and tour the city of San Francisco. It's so beautiful and exciting. So different from Salt Lake City Utah. They kids really enjoyed themselves. Not only did they treat us to eat, they even allowed us to pick a Souvenir and bought it and send us home with it. So sweet as they give selflessly. Irene keeps talking about Jesus and God. How good they are and I think that is why they are so giving is because they truly are following the Savior's example. We are always the recipients and never the giver. One day I would like to be the giver. Hoi.
We got back yesterday after spending a day and a half on the road because the mountains were snowed in and we had to put on chains on our tires. It was the longest drive ever but we made it back in one piece. After off-loading our stuff, the children starts leaving to their own home and I miss them all over again. I hate when they leave. Our house is so empty without them. I love my family.
