Ever since I was little, I’ve dreamed of going to Hawaii. For a long time, I thought I’d spend my honeymoon there. However, when I married, my husband and I didn’t have a steady income. Soon after that, children were born, and money went to other things. We bought into a timeshare that included several exotic locales, but mostly we stuck to Oregon state resorts.
Also, my husband Jim professed, along with several other members of his family, that he had no desire to go to Hawaii. I truly believe that negative statements can mold themselves into your being if you let them. I soon found myself thinking, yeah, who cares about hot beaches in the tropics?
And then, my dear niece Angela told us excitedly that her wedding would be in Maui. She would be living the dream! Would we, could we see her get married there? My husband surprised me by booking our timeshare in Maui. Yay! Hawaii! And still I heard the familiar family laments of “no desire to go there. Doesn’t hold interest for me.”. Be that as it may, if you have the money to do it, this is a close family member getting married, and I’m so glad we’ve taken the opportunity to come here. I love the sights, smells, bird calls, food, trade winds. And I like our lanai, which consists if a privacy curtain of palm trees and a tropical tree with pink flowers. I must get an identification book. Picture below shows the veil of nature’s beauty keeping the balcony or lanai very reserved.
So here we are, and it’s a get-settled day, but I swam in the pool and ignored the nagging migraine trying to implant itself like a parasite. I’ve had enough of the creature the last few days, thank you very little. I am going to relish every single moment here.
