Day 57

They said there'd be odd days where I'd miss you more than the usual days.
Days where you need those open arms to fall into for a comfort hug.
Where you need that shoulder to lean on after a hectic day.
Where your hand on my knee while driving picks up my spirits.
Where just laying in bed analysing the ceiling together is enough.

Yesterday I questioned why all over again.

I told myself yesterday that I wasn't going to church today because I wasn't feeling it. My excuse was going to be suspected chicken pox (the baby). I simply had a rough day emotionally yesterday. 30 minutes before church was about to begin something whispered to get ready and go.

The last speaker in sacrament meeting said just what I needed to hear and he was very blunt about it.

Go to the temple.
I haven't been since this photo was taken.
July 9th 2010.
The day we were sealed.

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!
