I had hoped to visit the Honolulu Museum of Art yesterday, since admission on the first Wednesday of each month is free. The regular price of admission is $10 per person. However, we had a terrible rain storm and the streets were flooded. No way could we venture out of our house to visit the Honolulu Museum. Hence, I have no photos of art to show you at this time.
I spent Wednesday planning a large remembrance party to honor the memories of my deceased relatives: Mom and Dad, brother Dathan, brother in law Pete, and sister in law Pat. This party will be held on March 26 at 12 pm in my home. There will be 20 of us, and the food will be catered by Marian’s Catering. I have already paid for this lunch by credit card, and plan to add a fruit salad, chips, and coconut cake to round out the buffet. After lunch, I plan to show everyone a family video, which was taken in 1996, the year my mother turned 80. People will laugh and cry, as the video will bring back memories of these dearly departed family members. I anticipate that my remembrance party will be a resounding success.
I always think of my father, who praised me for turning my life around: “Despite my eldest daughter’s nervous breakdown and despite the fact she was a single mother back then, just look at her now. I am so impressed.”
You can attribute it to my marriage, which certainly helped. But, it takes two to have a successful marriage. David and I have common interests and values. Let the good times roll.
