Residency and such.

Somehow, I have faith in his residency being granted – if not, then appealed and granted that way. It’s a long shot, but we are prepared to wait for the outcome simply because we do not have the finances. His eyes are an important factor right now, and him seeing will be our key to getting up funds for everything else. If he can’t see, he can’t work and from donations we have received from his industry friends, we are able to pay for the 2 of 3 surgeries required to bring his eye sight back. What funds we have at the moment is set to go towards his eye surgeries then we can generate income for the dialysis.

Pretty much, we’ve exhausted all support from family and friends and rightly so, it’s been too long to leech off family who need money themselves – but it has been greatly appreciated. We haven’t looked into fundraising as of yet. We are definitely prepared to wait it out for residency and have the attitude that no amount of money can turn what is evidently and ultimately in God's hands.

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!
