I had meant to write this journal entry yesterday, but something stopped me. I think that it was just too soon after the shock. I just can't believe the amount of devastation that we have witnessed in the past 7 years! Indonesia, Haiti and now Japan to just name a few. It's so sickening to think of the love ones that have been lost and the families left behind whose lives will never be the same.
Here is my prayer for Japan. That those who have suffered losses will be given hope, strength and peace. That those hurt will recover and be healed. That those missing will be found safe and sound. That the nuclear situation will be gotten under control so that no more suffering occurs.. and that Japan will find help wherever and whenever they need it.
All my love goes out to you Japan.
For those of us blessed enough to be safe one more day, let us learn from this. We never know what lies around the corner so we mustn't sweat the small stuff, be grateful for everyday that we are alive, treat others with kindness, compassion and generosity and live our lives to the fullest each and every day.
