Family celebrates

Mere Naleba
Monday, May 12, 2014

WORK commitments forced the Stephens family of Tacirua in Suva to celebrate Mother's Day a little early.

The family of Litiana Stephens, 58, spent the day at the Nasese seawall where they shared a Mother's Day picnic lunch and enjoyed the company of four of her five children and her seven grandchildren.

"Normally we celebrate Mother's Day next week — we follow the Methodist Church in Fiji calendar," Mrs Stephen's daughter, Mereani Stephens, said.

"But because I live in Nadi and this is the only time I am able to spend time with my family so we have asked her if we could celebrate Mother's Day today.

"We are so thankful that she is still here with us, and fortunate to be able to spend another Mother's Day with her."
