Old Photos 3

Still going chru photos. Still gotta hana. Dis is one hard day foa me. Hard foa concentrate. I look at alla photos and think about alla wasted potential foa one good relationship wit my madda.

I’m glad I get da photos. Dey mean so much to me. Treasures.

I jass wish she woulda been willing foa answer my questions… not hard ones. Just about her early years, life in Hawai’i, all lidat. What she thought, how she wen feel back den.

Eh, u know wat? When we’re young, we nevah think to ask da questions, and by da time we like know, stay too late.

She and my faddah both took alla answers wit dem and wen leave me wit alla questions…

Feeling sad today. But seeing myself so small, back in ku‘u one hānau, makes me feel litto bit moa bettah. Kinda.

Me – 15 months old.

    You sure very very cute 🙂

    It’s so hard losing your mother. My dear mother has been gone for 8 years now and there is not a day that goes by that I do not think of her and miss her. I miss her so much it hurts 😦 Your’re so right. So many questions with no answers. Wish I could do more to cheer you up. Just try to remember all the good things and hopefully your pain will ease up a little bit. Hugs 🙂

    Cute keiki! My mother was very open with me when I was younger, but now she’s grown a bit distant. I try to get her to come visit, but she won’t. I try to visit, but probably not as often as I should.
