So, yesterday, on behalf of everyone who has contributed to the PBFT journey, I received this very special and humbling gratitude stone from the lovely Debs Hancock and the inspiring team at Taiki E, acknowledging all our mahi over the last few years - I think that it might be 5 years!!! So well done all of you!
And a big shout out to the Taiki E team and everything that they are doing - including the their #fridaydoey.

I cannot stop thinking about all of the people within our lovely community to whom I am grateful - so so so so many. How to pick one????? For now I carry this stone in my pocket and feel grateful for gratitude and those who share it. Arohanui. ... See MoreSee Less
