My name is Kapua (Hawaiian for flower).I was born on the Island of Oahu, and now live on the Big Island in Hawaii. I've been happily married to my High School Sweetheart & Best Friend for 37 yrs. Together, God has blessed us with three wonderful children & eight precious grandchildren:) There have been many obstacles in my life, but the Lord has always directed my path. He has turned the darkness into light and I meditate on his promise found in Proverbs 3:5, 6......
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
Love you Mom
My son is a soldier I can reveal this with pride (the fear is hidden just below the surface, I confide) He's a real American hero Who believes in democracy (yet there is an inner whisper that wants him here with me) I am honored to be his mother I brag of him through the day (but I can't help but wonder if there isn't a better way?) My son is a strong, brave soldier Who says he's prepared to die (he's not aware of the late night hours that I just sit and cry) I wear a ribbon and a flag Upon my collar every day (but alone at night, I bow my head, for my baby boy I pray...)
My son & his buddies....heading back to Iraq!

No kind deed has ever lacked its reward.
Hawaiians are known for their generosity, hospitality and warm sharing. This giving nature is grounded in the principle of reciprocity. When given, the Hawaiian will give back in equal measure or more, be it a gift or a smile.
