One of my favorite sayings is, “It can always be better.  It can always be worse.  Appreciate what you have.”

We just came back from our most recent trip to Shanghai, and it isn’t until you are away from home for a period of time that you realize how much we take for granted what we have here at home, especially when you see it from the sky, when you feel the jerk of the tires hitting the concrete landing strip, when you walk and stand in line at customs, then you take the escalator down to get your bags and you see this sign.  It doesn’t say Hawaii but the United States.  Wow.

In the next few days, we will be sharing about our experiences in Shanghai, so stay tuned for more.

Mahalo, Gang!
