a name and a blessing

Since Keola's family was here from Maui to see him graduate,
(which isn't easy for them to do),
we decided to bless Nōweo the next day.

Naturally, Keola was nervous because he's never blessed a baby before,
but on Sunday I was reminded that blessings come from God, not people.

He blessed her with all the things I hope for her. Some of the highlights are...
That she would be a good person.
That she would stand up for what's right.
and MOST importantly
That she would know how INCREDIBLY AND UNCONDITIONALLY LOVED SHE IS.
We tell her every day. several times a day. I hope she's getting the message.
