Whānau taonga

My dad’s parents are from Aberdeen, Scotland. My dad was born and never left Upper Hutt. My mum is from Nuhaka. Our family house had lots of little trinkets but did it have many taonga. Recently I realised it did, they were things I never really considered, they were just things that had always been there. But that’s why they are taonga to us, they have lived with us through the tough times and the celebrations.
