Saturday in March.

Still miss you every day. You're on my mind always and my emotions play bi-polar ping pong all the time depending on what I’m doing. Yesterday I had to pick Tyler up from her date in town and it was dark and the baby had opted to stay with Ngawi.

The drive alone bought back the memory of the drive to the hospital the morning you passed and how I begged “Please, not yet” the whole way to the hospital. It was the longest trip I’d ever taken.

I hated the reminder of it lastnight.

Pre-season game this afternoon.
MAC vs Tech.
We'll see how the new management pans out.
Going by training sessions and player reports, my faith is still on platform 9 3/4 waiting to board.
They came 7th on the tables last year of 10.
If it all falls apart this year, Hello Havelock.

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!
