Life is an interesting journey, with many stops and many ups-and-downs all along the way. With as many of us in the halau, we always have plenty to share in terms of the joys of living (e.g., the birth of new keikis in our ever-growing ohana) but, more importantly, being there for each other to face some of the more inevitably challenging times in life. We've experienced both the joys and the challenges of living over the years, with 2007 no exception.
Please join the halau in healing prayer to send love and light to those in our ohana who could use some hugs at this time:
(1) Kumu has just lost his mother this week, snatched by the wind rather unexpectedly.
(2) Cynthia's mother is in the hospital, struggling but hanging in there.
(3) Ku'uipo is recovering from a procedure that prepares her for dialysis, while awaiting a kidney transplant.
(4) Kathy's father-in-law has been ill, possibly with cancer.
No fuss, but I thought you'd want to know ... Simply knowing that we have the halau as a source of positive energy to "lift us unto the light" in our hula when the going gets tough provides plenty of comfort. Please include all of us in your prayers.
On a positive note, it's spring ... Napua and Lilibeth should each bring us a "bundle of joy" to CELEBRATE LIFE soon!
