With the news of the unfolding and escalating disaster in Japan dominating the media, our thoughts are with our friends, especially our previous exchange daughters and their families in Japan. Thankfully they are all safe, but we can't help feeling sad for the magnitude of loss of life and environmental destruction. This morning, I looked around our home and found all kinds of little reminders of happy times we have had with them. Most are beautiful gifts the girls or their families have given us or made themselves ... a thousand cranes, paper cuts, dolls and fabrics.
I even found small gifts from my host families when I was in Japan over 40 years ago,
and a little handbag I made a few years ago and this reminds me so much of our girls. We are thinking postive thoughts for you all.
Not to forget a small but very special event this week - Happy 3rd Birthday William. May you always be protected from disaster.
