A to Z Challenge – Honour

HONOUR:  respect highly, confer dignity upon, acknowledge

I honour my mother

 

She has the reputation of being a master “ei” maker on the island of Rarotonga.

An ei is a garland made of flowers worn around the neck or on top of head.

Mum picks flowers from her garden with the love and care that bestows any living thing, respecting the gift of nature.  In her garden frangipani, gardenia and hibiscus flourish.

She creates each ei with joy and tenderness, her hands gently transforming flowers into beautiful garland, a story unfolding. She looks on with pride as she gifts them to family and friends.
