Aloha. Everyone has a story to tell. My story is all about my faith, family, rescues, Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, my aloha life and Origami Owl. I’ve chosen for my life theme #joyinthejourney. This blog is about finding joy in the journey in my slice of life. Joy in the journey is a destination, not a finish line. I’ve come to realize that no matter what the circumstances are, it’s so important to remember joy is a decision not a reaction. Joy is a response from logic not reaction of emotion. I can have power over my emotions. There are still so many lessons to be learned about joy. I have to remember an acorn becomes a mighty oak but it’s not overnight…one day at a time…one season at a time.
I’m a wife, married 37 years, mom of two sons and two daughter in laws, as well as, Nannita to precious #lilpye and #lilpyeguy. Oh how I love being “Nita”! I’m from the Sunshine State-Florida originally, but lived in the Peach State-Georgia, for twenty eight years because my #pyeguy is a native peachboy. I have been most of my life a southern peach Pye. There’s nothing like southern hospitality and often we offer a yummy pie (that spelling just doesn’t like right) as a welcome, glad to meet you, look forward to getting to know you better gift.
We recently moved to the island of Oahu in Hawaii so I’m now a island girl and a Pyenapple (just had to change the spelling of pineapple). In Hawaii, the symbol of hospitality, welcome, glad to meet you, is the Pyenapple (pineapple). I’m learning each day how to live the aloha life as a Pyenapple not Peach Pye.
Well here’s a slice of Pye served with joy to say Mahalo for following my blog and for us getting to know each other better.
