My Wonderful Amazing Mom


(Mom, and my two oldest brothers-in Hawaii- 1962)





(Dad and Mom & our nephew Gabe- 2007)





My mom is an incredibly strong and self-less woman and continues to be so even today. She along with dad raised 12 boys and 2 girls and also a few cousins who would stay at our home from time to time. Within the past few years she has been taking care of our dad who has had multiple strokes and he can no longer care for himself. She is a dedicated wife and does a wonderful job taking care of our dad and yet she is always willing to help each of her children anytime we need anything. Mom has been blessed with amazing faith in the Lord. She taught me that whatever trials I face, to always put faith and trust in the Lord and to do my part to the best of my ability too. My mom loves crafting and creating with her hands. Growing up she made our clothing and quilts and to this day makes beautiful quilts for her family and friends. She also makes beautiful leis and bakes the most delicious Tongan Pani (Sweet Buns) and Tongan Puddings with custard. We are so blessed to have our mother and father still with us. It’s amazing the impact a parent can make on their children. I hope and pray that I will have the ability to be an amazing mother and wife as my own mother is.
