It's love ...

There's a song by Jessica Simpson that explains how jumping into married life was a new experience for her, but despite her thinking tuna fish was chicken, it didn't matter because she was with someone she loved .. and then their marriage didn't work out and they divorced. Still a good song though.

"I can let my hair down, I can say anything crazy
I know you'll catch me right before I hit the ground
With nothing but a T-shirt on, I never felt so beautiful
Baby as I do now, now that I'm with you"

.. and that's the basics.
If you can't do at least that much, there's no point in trying much of anything else.

These three ... my relief in the months that followed Larrys departure.
We had Carls Jr for 2nd dinner .. also a relief.

Thinking of all our missionaries in the Philippines right now.
There are several from my Stake, and a nephew from my immediate family.
May they be sheltered from the storm.

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!
