Over the last weekend of January we got together with my siblings and spouses in Wellington for our annual sibling reunion. We spent one night in Wellington and then went through to Martinborough in the Wairarapa. We browsed the boutique shops in Greytown, ate at the Gladstone winery, went for long walks around Martinborough, laughed, joked, watched NZ succomb in another one-day cricket match (past a joke!!). A highlight was sharing stories of how our parents had impacted us in our christian faith and then celebrating Communion together.
For the previous two years the siblings have all had to travel to wherever I was having treatments. This year it was a blessing to be able to resume our ‘rotation’ and not be subject to medical appointments.
