Love Stories of Hawaii

Special Occasion

I Wish Upon a Star
Dedicated to my wife, Nancy

Submitted by L

When we first got married, I wanted to take a honeymoon to Hawaii. We were just able to just keep our heads above water and not able to do the things we wanted. I started to work at TRW and found out that after 25 years of service, you will get $1500 as a bonus. I thought, well, here is our chance to do the things we always wanted to do. I know it was 25 years later, but who cares when you're having fun. We both worked very hard and had our family, two boys and one girl. We all lived in the house that I built. We couldn't afford any new furniture, so we just piled up the lumber and used that for our tables and chairs. As time went on, and 25 years later, I did get my bonus and after they took everything out, all I had left was $900. Disappointed, we said that someday we will be able to take our trip to Hawaii. The kids are all grown up now and we have grandkids and soon will be great-grandparents. Retired for 10 years and our time has arrived. We are going to Hawaii in September of this year. My brother and his friend are going to join us on the trip. Saw the story in the News Herald about the special trip and thought, wouldn't it be nice to do it twice. We are going to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary this year in July. Wouldn't it be nice to finally take our trip that we always wanted? Yes, we have booked a trip later this year, but, it would be nice to just share a special Valentine's Day with my very dear wife. Thank you for taking the time to read this real story. L.
