I met Momma Lei or as what everybody calls her Auntie Lei when I played down in Portland last year around October. At first I asked myself who was this lady who have such a positive aura surrounding her. She cheers me from a far and I can tell that she was watching me closely. There was even some boys who asked who was that "girl" playing? Uncle Keith and Momma Lei looks back and immediately said, thats my daughter.
When I saw my friend Keoki approach her I knew right there and then that Momma Lei was his mom. I couldn't wait for our match to be done so that I can immediately meet her. And as soon as I get that opportunity, I went right ahead and walked where she was. She gave me a hug so tight and I can tell how sincere that hug was. And that was the beginning.
Anyways, after spending half of mothers day down in Portland, Momma Lei sent an email to everyone who was there. No words can explain on how I feel about her message to us. I love how she wrote it. I love the fact that she remembers every single detail of what happened. I love how she would detail every situation about every person. Its sincere ... It's Love.!

No words can sincerely express my gratitude for the awesome weekend I experienced! I had a heck of a great time, starting with dinner with Uncle Keith and shopping with Ola on Friday evening; clinic and partying with my vball ohana on Saturday; breakfast with Ola, Eddie and my mini mo'opunas on Sunday; and tapping the day by watching Keoki & Erin play softball. Monday brought nothing but total exhaustion for me while I was at work....was it good for me..heck yeah!
Vball Ohana ~ I expressed to Auntie Dale, how I wished I could or would one day meet your moms and share with them my gratitude for bringing you into a fierce world and being part (a very important part) of my life. Each of you are exceptional and compliment one another with your love for life, passion, a fierce fire of desire of making possibilities a reality! Your thoughtfulness and sincere love overwhelms me to no end...mahalo pili for your Mother's Day evening with me and Uncle. We enjoyed ourselves immensely...but then again we always do and you guys make that possible every time we're with you. We wouldn't have it any other way. Know I'm here for each of you and that I love you ~ eternally.
Hallford-Kalamau Ohana...you make my life complete and you know it! You are my heart and spirit, mahalo pili for allowing me in sharing it with others unconditionally. I love you, today, tomorrow thru time for all eternity. ;-)
I'm hoping one day that my mom and my second mom would meet. It would be a joy fore to see how they would interact and share stories with each other.
Love you Momma Lei!
