  1. Thanks Monica!! Just the reminder I needed this week. A little investment everyday has a big pay off long term!

    Aloha Monica. Just to be a voice of encouragement – I love “hearing” your thoughts when I read your words. Make my day a little brighter and give me pause as to how to keep my marriage/life/children/spiritual place/ right where they are supposed to be = at the center and not all the other stuff that can clutter up our lives. Mahalo and hope you have a great day, Heidi

    1. Thank you Heidi!! This means SO much to me. Thank you! Blessings to you this fall! xoxo Aloha-

    You floss your kids’ teeth! Well done! That’s definitely low down on my list of priorities 😉
    Love your post as always – speaks a great deal to me at the moment. Two of the things I am good at though is having dinner together as a family nearly every night, and never missing my Friday morning ladies prayer group meeting. I find driving in the car to/from school/sport/friends is where a lot of the good conversations happen with my teenager – have to work harder to make them happen with my 20 year old who drives himself everywhere nowadays.
    Have a fab day!

    1. Thank you Sheena!
      Well, my boys are all mostly independent now (the little flosser sticks make it much easier!) but I definitely need to give some reminders! 😉
      Friday morning prayer sounds wonderful! And yes to car-time conversations.
      My 19 and I have been mostly texting, but that is fun in its own way. 🙂 Much aloha to you!

    1. ah thank you Kathryn! And just had a visit to your site. You have a beautiful family and loved what I saw over there! 🙂 aloha-
