Of Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow…

A Tribute to Manny Galera, 1935-2005

I experienced the difficulty of loss YESTERDAY,
While reflections of happy memories kept coming my way.
How hard I thought was TODAY’S “Letting Go…”
As a voice in me kept repeating… “No, No, No…”
With Prayers and Thanksgiving came Joy and Gladness,
And not wanting to live with memories in Sadness.
The Love of Family and many friends who cared,
And the “Don’t Have Pity Parties” of a Mentor shared,
Encouraged me to move forward to a brighter… TOMORROW,
Knowing that life experiences should NOT be a living Sorrow.

A Jelly Bean Prayer for You

White is for his heart, so pure…
Red for his love, and all he did endure.
Blue is for our sins and his promise of forgiving,
Green for all the joys and happiness in living.

Yellow is for the sun that shines so very bright,
Orange for the prayers said each night,
Purple is for his lonely hour of sorrow,
And pink is for a new day, in tomorrow

This bunch of jelly beans
colorful and bright,
Sends for you a prayer and a promise
Of special times made right.

The Golden Rule for Leaders / Managers

Lead and Manage Others
As You Would Have
Others Lead and Manage You.

Manage Wrong and Not Be Fair,
You Will Create Problems Galore.
Manage Right With “TL Care,”
Yours Will Be Happy Days and More.

Knowledge

Heavenly Father,
I’m blessed with knowledge,
so will YOU show me now,
How to use it wisely
and find a way somehow,

To make this world I live in
a happier and better place,
And make life with its problems
a little easier to face.

Grant me faith and courage
and put purpose in my days,
And show me how to serve YOU
in smart effective ways.

So that my education,
my knowledge and my skill,
May find their true fulfillment
as I learn to do YOUR will.

And may I always be aware
in everything I do,
as knowledge comes from learning,
and wisdom comes from YOU.

Amen.

Aloha of the Best and Only Kine, Part II

“Welcome and Aloha” to passengers each said,
“I’ll show you to your cabin, that’s ready and made,
This is the Aloha Deck, and the Pursers Station’s here
With all its finest features and safety life vest near.”

With the Greeting Process in high gear
A split of the Attendants were made without fear,
For the night turn down services still to be done
This cabin VIP task was completed, one by one

Embarkation continued to the dinner hour
With Spirits high and all looking fresh as a flower,
On this hectic, long and busy Day,
Yes, soon this Ship will sail on its merry way

One last event to finally take place
And prepare to be ready in any case,
As the Cabin Attendant’s all, must still…
Be there for the important Life Boat Drill.

An interesting, exciting and rewarding day
Saw how Cruise Ship Cabin Attendants do it their way
My Experience and Assessment, boggled my mind,
Witnessing a successful Celebration on
“Aloha of the Best and Only Kine”

Written by Rose Galera, 2000. This poem was written as a result of spending a day in port with the Housekeeping Department of the American Hawaii Cruises in 1999. A tribute to Cruise Ship Housekeeping Cabin Attendants in Hawaii.

Aloha of the Best and Only Kine, Part I

It started as a beautiful, sunny day
I was anxiously ready, happy and gay
With high anticipation of the job at hand,
The big ship was boarded, docked near land.

A training assessment, I was anxious to do,
As I walked the gangplank with a skip or two,
Of a typical Housekeeping review, I thought
When a glimpse of a white uniform, I caught.

On the “Aloha” deck, was my first start,
Greeted by an E.H., looking fresh and sharp
Admist disembarkation in full swing
Brought feelings of many a good thing.

A view of the cabins, with features mentioned,
By a Team presentation in full session,
With check-out cleaning actively taking place
Of friendly Attendants, leading the pace.

In narrow hallways to Housekeeping we sped
With preciseness and quickness, instructions were fed,
In a quick orientation and briefing this day
By an enthusiastic EH, leading the way

Time for lunch followed, then the 1:00 pm call
Of Cabin Attendants, Bell Men, the EH and All
Direct to the “Aloha” Deck where all must meet
For Embarkation time and Passengers to greet

To provide an experience and all the while…
In full uniform, Kukui nut leis and smiles,
All Cabin Attendants stood tall, while in line
To Celebrate “Aloha of the Best and Only Kine.”
