Sunday, May 12 – time to celebrate the Mothers in our family.
The word for family in the Hawaiian language is “Ohana”. In our ‘Ohanas there may be multiple Moms to celebrate. The Hawaiian ‘Ohana extends to grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins, friends, neighbors, and our kupuna (elders in our community) — those who we feel connected to and responsible for. ‘Ohana means love, respect and maintaining harmony within your “family” group. Members of the ‘Ohana know that life is interconnected and that Mom is at the center.
Happy Mother’s Day! Hau`oli Lâ Makuahine!
