Week 7 Living In A Hotel
(Week 9 w/o a home):
I've learned I can live on very little however it is easy to forget there are crates full of things waiting for me!
Home is where you are with your spouse however without sounding materialistic, I can't wait to see my stuff when we move!
Living in a tourist area gives me a false reality of what Hawaii is really like; because I will have to pay for that nice cold A/C and warm bath water!
Why does it say, "Patience is a virtue?" Because it is. Simple as that. A simple statement, yet hard to execute.
I can decorate anything for the holidays!!! A 6 inch USB Christmas Tree from Target, a $3 strand of colored twinkle lights, and Pandora's endless holiday tunes; if that doesn't spread Christmas cheer I don't know what will!!
New beginnings are equally scary and exciting. Adventure holds both.
I have learned that I felt at home in our hotel (ie: stress level decreased) when I stopped using the TomTom to navigate to our hotel in Waikiki and repacked our suitcases to make available only the 'daily items'.
Life is about who you know...hate to say it, but it's true! O'hana-family/close friends-When people take care of each other and the opportunities are endless.
I sincerely believe traveling is no excuse to not prioritize the parents, sisters, and kiddos, plus close friends you left on the mainland. I do my best; but always try to communicate!
Nothing is possible without prayer, grace, & love. :)
