Love Stories of Hawaii

Timeless Love

Family and Friends
Dedicated to Leonard and Dorothy

Submitted by M

In the late '70s, I accepted a short term nursing position in Oahu, Hawaii. It was the ideal job, with plenty of time to be outdoors, exploring the wonders of the island. I biked to the Bishop Museum, snorkeled at Hanauma Bay, and strolled Kapiolani Park. That was also the year that my mother retired. My dad had retired several years earlier. Their dream had been to travel, but health concerns had limited their plans. I encouraged my folks to fly to Hawaii for a vacation while I was nearby. I knew they would love to see the islands and would feel safer with a daughter close by. My parents surprised me by agreeing to fly over (from Texas) for a visit. They arrived the week before Thanksgiving. I met them at the airport with flower leis and tons of plans for sightseeing. They were nonstop with visiting the sights of Oahu. Towards the end of the visit, I took off a few days, and flew with them to Kauai. It was a special time with my family; I think we enjoyed each other as both family and friends. We laughed at my mom for refusing to bring or purchase a swimsuit, as she is not a water person. However, she loved sitting on the beach watching the birds and waves. The vacation ended, and my parents returned to Texas. My job also concluded, and I, too, returned to Texas, lured by a sweet note from a former boyfriend. Our Hawaii adventure ended, but not our memories. In the years following, my parents would both refer to the enjoyable time they had had visiting Hawaii. And I have to agree, it was a wonderful time. Several years have gone by, and my dad has passed away. He and Mom were married 45 years. I am grateful for the time I had with them and for their example of 'true love'.
