I love finding little things like this that pop out of nowhere on my travels. Seen on a footpath in Taupo it apparently is a Maori proverb that means "love given, love returned" and is a timely reminder in this day and age of how we treat each other.
After Prince Philip's death and how his family came together on the day of his funeral it got me thinking about my own ancestors. Obviously the royals knew/know each other pretty well but I don't have alot of information about those who came before me except for immediate grandparents/great grandparents etc so I've started typing up kind of like a memorandum of my life, thoughts and what I've found out so far on my genealogy journey. Hopefully after I've gone, whenever that happens, my children will be able to have something of me that tells a story of my life. Over the last 2 days I have been feeling a bit blah, not sure if it's the change of season or what and we don't watch a great deal of what's on the television (it's usually rubbish anyway) so we search for interesting things to watch on youtube - we found this one yesterday, makes me grateful for where we live and for having access to medicine, see what you think:
