Ohana means family, family means nobody gets left behind. Or forgotten.
Sometimes we forget just how important family is. When we think of what we’re grateful for, they typically top the list but I don’t think we fully realize why. The most common answers are: they’re always there for you when times get tough, they’re a huge part of your life especially when you’re growing up, and they always want the best for you no matter what. But there’s one aspect that ties these all together: love. Unconditional love. Sure, families fight and have disagreements, but within each family member’s heart, there is a special spot for you that only you can fill. You cannot be replaced or forgotten – you are there permanently, just as each of them fill a part of your own heart. Keep this in mind when things get crazy or you feel alone. A simple text or phone call can really make a big difference – and not only for you, but also for them. ©
