Ko Wai au?

Ko Au Ko Te Aroha Te Mea Nui Tonu

Taranaki te maunga tapu
Mohakatino te awa
Ngāti Mutunga te iwi
Ngāti Raumati me Kai tangata ngā hapū
Te Ruapekapeka te Marae
Hamiora Wharematangi Raumati raua ko Parehaereone Matuku taku tūpuna
Te Ratutonu taku matua 
I te taha o taku māmā
Ngāti Maniapoto me Ngāti Wahiao -Tuhourangi ngā iwi
Tame Roa raua ko Eva Te Wehi o Te Rangi Brady taku tūpuna 
Lily Edna Rangi Amohia taku whaea
Ko Lynne Parehaereone Raumati ahau.


Ko Au... Mother, Grandmother, Great-grandmother, Sister, Aunty, Cuzzy, Friend

Self employed, Legacy Builder...

The things that matter:  

- whakapapa - I am in the present because my tūpuna stood before me...  

- my children - whatever age  and whatever and whoever they have made themselves to be in this life,  they are and will always be my babies...  beloved one and all... 

- moko, mokomoko... the 'gifts' that take us forward and make our days a joy..

-  whanau,  manaakitanga, love, connection, abundance, prosperity...

- aspiration - the gift of dreaming and making those manifest so those coming after may reap future reward from our efforts today...

- life, - each moment, each day, precious 

- gratitude, - thankfulness for the abundance which makes life rich no matter how empty ones pocket can be...

- laughter, music, true friends, goodness, health and healing...

the sum of all that has come before to bring me to this point looking out toward the generations yet to be born with hope for the future...

Tihei Mauri Ora!!!
