Le Sabbath.

My primary amigo, Nats, came up with a great idea to feed the kids before 3rd hour at church. Our ward begins at 11am so they sit through lunch time surviving on what candy their teachers give them. I'm glad she had the initiative to do this because they were less of a circus today during 3rd hour.

With our Primary presentation in a few weeks and no music director, it's been a challenge trying to pull it all together. Our ward is supposed to be one of the more musical wards in the Stake .. yeah, that's why no one sings during Sacrament meeting.

Activities in the ward have been sparse and when there is one it involves food, sports or music and there's a Stake Music Activity happening sometime before Christmas. I decided to give up on attending ward activities a few years ago, but I had an interesting visit to a member in our ward during the week, who hasn't been to church in a while, who told me, re: living in PA, that maybe I need to adjust my attitude. I decided to apply that to church activities. I totally agree with her, but it's something that needs to be done on a mass level. One person doesn't set the standard in our ward, if they did .. everyone would sing during sacrament meeting.

Last speaker in sacrament today pretty much told the youth to get off their asses and do their duties eg. Prepare sacrament.  I've said it before .. I love my ward, but we need a spiritual dynamite.
Some good ole Jesus T.N.T.

PS: Something has happened to Rush Munroes Ice-Cream. The newly available banana flavor combined with chocolate ice-cap does not a-delicious-evening-dessert make.

Super Moon, Te Mata and Ariel.

Last nights Super Moon. Te Mata Peak. Safe to say, Hubbalush loves her Ariel. She's my favorite big sister Mum. (Shame Tyler, Shai, Nessa and Rome) Goodnight Hawkes Bay. Earthquake: I felt it. I got my child up and ran outside onto my concrete porch where I thought it would be safest. The Seismologist on the news the next day said running outside is not a good idea in the event of an Earthquake. Now I know for next time. Hawkes Bay didn't feel the effects of it like Southland did .. and is continuing to do. Over 1000 aftershocks since it all began. Tyler is stuck on the South Island and finishing out their tour, much to my dismay. It's a disaster zone in parts down there and although she's on the skirts of the danger zones, you'd think it professional AND safe to cancel the tour and bring the troop home .. but no. Some stupid doesn't think so. Goodnight.

Kawe Mate.

Recently an Aunty of mine, who is staunch in her Maori culture, talked to me about the protocol of Kawe Mate. Kawe Mate is a custom during the maori process of death that involves taking the deceased memory back to where they were well known or considered home. It's a custom that is basically a gesture of love to family members who weren't able to attend the tangi. My family never practised it at all and I don't think it's necessary to start. I carry his memory in my heart, as does his Mom, that's all that matters. Happy Mothers Day!
