Nursing School and 2014.

Nursing School begins mid Feb. I'm looking forward to doing something next year. I took my year off after Larry died and now it's back into doing something, something that will benefit long term.

There are alot of scholarships for Maori going into the health field to study and several people have told me to exhaust them all.

... in July, my sister, sis-in-laws and 2 nieces and I are planning a 3-Day retreat away from the norm. Get away from all the kids, Bebin excluded, and VEGE.
Excited for that too.

Save and study - 2014.

3 Craig kids are away on camp this week in Rotorua. I was scared for them going away for 5 days without any of us. Their parents were opposite to how I felt ... let freedom ring.

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!
