I've been meaning to blog about this but never got around to it but I think now will be a good time since i'm logged and blogging dur...lol!! So last week Tues. me & Jayy flew out to Long Beach to take my Aunty Pou and it was so much fun...we stayed over night and flew back Weds morning. That whole trip we were like lil kids roaming the foreign streets on Pacific Ocean Ave. by our Hotel visiting random stores..even stopped at a hole in the wall bar to watch the BYU game yea...poor people were probably wondering what we were doing!! Anyhow when we flew back i came straight into work. When i got in my sup asked how i was doing and if i was excited cause "Baby Girl" was coming soon, and we got to talking about everything the changes and so on, and during the chit chat she told me to read this blog of another co-worker and when I read it to remember how blessed i am even when it gets to those sleepless nights or stinky diapers just to remember what a BLESSING she is going to be...so I pulled up the blog and started reading away.....BOY....if ONLY I had boxes and boxes of Kleenexes i would've buried myself in them!! Her name is Kendra and her blog is http://www.kendraandryanwebster.blogspot.com/. When we touched down in SLC we made up our minds to give our lil "Baby Girl" a nickname "Moomoo" from her Dad I love it, but after reading this blog and feeling just a bit of how great this women Kendra is and with the nickname(among plenty of other ones) she gave her beautiful daughter Mckenzie which was "Muffin". I ONLY HOPE & PRAY that I will be a mother like her...FULL of EVERYTHING always STRIVING to be the BEST the MOTHER that she could be for her daughter the 4months she was here. I hope our daughter is as PERFECT as Mckenzie and Im sure she will be.!! But since reading that blog and the timing of everything (which me & Jayy and Im sure as everybody lives by) "EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON" so her nickname will be "MUFFIN" to help us remember how BLESSED we are to have her...and especially to remind us to EMBRACE the sleepless nights, the crying, the vomiting, the dirty diapers, the $$$ being spent on her, the exercise in packing & unpacking her bags, doctor appointments, teething time, potty training and of course that only for the first few months and years and then from there EMBRACE pretty much all that I probably put my parents through as a girl....now its my turn!! Thank you Crystal (my sup) for referring me to that blog and THANK you to the Webster family especially Kendra for being such a great example of EVERY KIND and a very special thanks to Baby Mckenzie "Muffin" you were to good for this world, and your little time here has changed so many peoples lives including mine and of course my daughter as she grows she will know why we decided to call her "Muffin" to be as special as you are!!

Back in 2001 his family was not members of our faith (LDS) but he made sure he did not miss my farewell. I still remember that day he had all his kids in vala tonga (tongan attire) sitting there listening to me. I remember him coming & giving me an envelope of money yet his family was struggling & I REMEMBER his loving words..."Alu tokanga ki he ngaue, ngaue ke lahi" thats all he said and kissed me...I cried & cried & cried my humble Uncle in his beat up van (at that time) with all his kids in there with him. Proud to say before i returned home from my mission in 2002 they were ALL baptized & HAPPY to report sealed as an eternal family a year later!!
Through out the years he has been right there for each of kids a long with his kids!! I can bet you if you met him in person yourself with in a second you would be able to feel of his LOVE!! A few months ago his leg was amputated (diabetes) and at the time the had told him his kidneys will go down hill from then, and as of Thursday (Nov 5th) it has failed. Right now there is nothing that can be done so he is at home with his family & a nurse that comes and checks on him daily.
I hope the best for him and i don't want him to go BUT I do know when the Lord calls its his time! I'm just grateful for my blessings in my life especially my family & especially this handsome man Uncle Saia we LOVE you & know what ever may come we have the TRUTH....FAMILIES ARE FOREVER!!
