Bethany Hamilton blogs on Valentines & her puppy Hana
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 3 March, 2009 : - - Aloha! February was a pretty relaxing month at home! I've been surfing and have been doing a lot of off-water training to improve my strength and surfing. The surf has been big, stormy, and chilly, but I've been sneaking in a few fun sessions! Thanks to Rip Curl, I've been staying warm in their great wetsuits!
Not only have I been training, but my family and I have been training my puppy, Hana! She is already potty trained, so we've been teaching her to "sit" and to "come"!! It was Valentines and, guess what... I had a Valentine! hahaha! It was my Mom and it was her birthday!
My brother, Tim, was in a pro bodyboarding competition at Pipe and he put on a great show! As I told you last month, Noah and Becky are getting married (Thank Jesus!) so they have been busy planning the wedding!
At the end of the month, I went to California to speak at a Womens conference called C.O.R.E. That went really good, and there were a ton of girls there! I got to hang out with Nick Vujicic (it was great to see him again) & Chelsey Cameron (actor Kirk Cameron's wife)! I also met a girl named Schae. She lost her arm recently in a ATV accident. She is the first girl I have met and talked with that is around my age who lost her arm. She is a really talented Softball player and is really anxious to get back out on the field!
Make sure to check out this month's Bible verse: "For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind." 2 Timothy 1:7
