Hawaiian Expressions by Auli’i

Nowempa (November) Word of the Month: “Mahalo”
Mahalo expresses gratitude and is used to say thank you. As a value, mahalo includes thankfulness and appreciation, a way of living. I’ve also learnt a deeper layer to the meaning of Mahalo.  

Ma – at, in, on, beside
Ha – life, breath
Alo – sharing in the presence
“In the presence of the divine”
As you go through your day, speak of your appreciation often and give thanks for what you have. Happy Holidays!
