Being Normal

31 Jan

Tiffany and I thought we would try being normal for 30 minutes tonight. After we fed Makoa his 8pm bottle, we decided to stop by and see Makana at Saint Rocke on our way home.  Both Tiffany and I were exhausted, but I thought it would be good for us to get out and try to do something together that didn’t revolve around a hospital, even if it was for 30 minutes.

Makana actually studied under my cousin Sonny Chillingworth and had become quite an accomplished slack-key guitarist.  His music is extremely uplifting and I’m so thankful we were able to listen in for a few minutes.  This is a video I shot tonight singing one of our favorite covers that Makana performs, slack-key style of course.

    He’s a crazy guitar player!! Glad you guys were able to get out a little and enjoy yourselves…you deserve it…and Makoa would want his mommy and daddy to be having some fun waiting for him to come home!!

    Nothing like Hawaiian music to sooth the soul. So glad you were able to take a well-deserved 30 minutes off. You have both been so very dedicated to all of your children during this time and itʻs important to remember, aside from your faith, where the source of strength comes from…you need to nourish yourselves as well.
    Love,
    Mom
