I was so happy that I didn't have to work late last Friday. I went home and flopped on my bed and was knocked out when my brother wakes me up..."Ate Faith needs help bringing things up"...and so I get my ass up and help her...the first thing I noticed was flowers. A lot of flowers. I love flowers...and wow, there were a lot of flowers.
So, Friday nights are family nights and we go spend it at our Ohana's house. I love this family. They took us in and call us family since we don't really have family here in Hawaii...but we do now. We usually go there at 6:30pm or so and stay there until late just talking and catching up on our week and sharing. I love them. And they are my family. But when my sister asked me, "Che, can you make at least 15 flower bouquets for mother's day?!" I was rethinking whether or not I should go to family night. I knew the flowers would take at least two hours to process...and then FIFTEEN!! flower bouquets! [Or, as many as I can make with all the flowers.]...My goodness, I know that there were weddings where I had to stay up until 2 in the morning and I only had to make like 5 bouquets...well, plus other floral arrangements and decorations...but I had help! I work in a team!
I didn't go to church with them, but as I was going to drag my body exhausted body to bed, I looked at the mountain of dishes that I had to do...and I couldn't just leave it. So I did the dishes and knocked out right after.
To all the mother's out there, I appreciate you. To my mommy: I love you and miss you with everything that I am. I can't wait to see you again...and I love you. *hugs*
