12 years.

Thinking back on 12 years of us makes me smile. I opened a folder from our 2008 cruise to Mexico and found photos I never knew we had.

It reminded me that when we got back from this trip you got so sick. We both said it was 'some foreign ass disease' from Mexico water, but it was signs of the renal failure after being educated about it the year later.

I found a dictaphone yesterday with dead batteries. When I turned it on and listened to the files there was a 3 hour file of you snoring. I remembered how we both denied snoring so I left it on one day. Result. You snore. I knew this before I hit record. I listened to your expressions video this morning and smiled hearing your voice. Needless to say, I know less about expressions now than I did 45 minutes ago.

I'm getting sick of your song. I have to play it every morning to the baby, who cries if I don't play "Clarrys song", followed by Popcorn Popping. I tried to play Warren G's Backdoor to her, but she threw her binky at me.

Gave your scriptures to Mum. She'll make good use of them. Also found a journal in there of yours in a mini composition book. It's dated 2003.

Did you see me switch wedding rings in the ICU that morning you left? You hated when I switched rings with you. I'll give it back next time we see eachother again.

We had a great 12 years.
I'm very much so looking forward to our greater forever.
Miss you mucho!

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!
