Happy Sunday PP 2017

I am not looking forward to the next 8 days. His mother is going to China for work tomorrow and he'll be with us. I'm tired already.

Primary Presentation today. I'm sure from the bottom it looked angelic and all that crap, but up where I sat was madness. The theme for primary this year was about choosing the right. I was thinking during the program about my short stint with the youth this year and contemplated who the better audience was to teach about choosing the right.

Primary aged kids are in their informative years. They're more susceptible to understanding and applying what impressions you leave with them where with the youth .. anything I taught was welcomed with attitude and a vacant stare.

After today .. I am glad to be back in the primary. I've only spent the last 20 years there. They're willing to learn what, why and when. The youth are more just when ... when can I leave church.

Lamb tails with Nan this afternoon.




My lens needs a clean. See the black dot in these last few photos?
Its either a demon or dust.
Hoping for the latter.

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!
