A Big Mahalo!

What a blessing and timing!  We just decided to fix the roof of the temple building and on the same day, we received a donation of $5,000 from the Significance Foundation -Donald and Joann Kawane Family Charitable Fund.  I was so glad that I immediately sent an email to thank Dr. and Mrs. Kawane who kindly arranged to make this happened.  My feeling of appreciation was sincerely a big

Mahalo!

  

But this afternoon, I realized that I should be very careful to express my feeling of mahalo because this expression of big mahalo looked too big.

It sounded like...

The bigger money you donate,

The bigger Mahalo I express like ..

 

Mahalo...$5 Donation

Mahalo......$20 Donation

Mahalo... $50

Mahalo...$100...

Mahalo..$500...

Mahalo$1000

 

But this is not true.

So, I want you to know my feeling of mahalo is always big,

Mahalo!

even if it were just expressed as "Mahalo."

 

Because I knew it was not easy to earn money

ever since I started to work a part-time job at the age of 16,

I knew how precious money was.

And because I am mindful of value of one dollar,

I can proudly say I'm saving penny in my everyday life,

which I'll be talking about, in the future at this blog.

 

Anyway what I want to say at this time, is, again, a big

Mahalo!

to Dr. and Mrs. Kawane and, to you, too, for supporting us,  for reading this blog and I will be thankful for any donation in the future, especially for reroofing.

 

And if you didn't receive my big,

Mahalo!

I'd like to apologize,

 

I'm sorry.

 

 

I'm lazy thank-you letter writer.  I'm pretty belated.   But I'm surely thanking you and will send you a big,

 Mahalo!

in the future. (I'm working right now.)
