The Important Things in Life

This wonderful post by Little Foodie in Hawaii made me stop and think today as the family drove to higher ground for safety in the Tsnnami warnings. It made me smile at the end when she said she wouldn't let her hubby surf.

Its at times like this as we think of the folks in Japan that we need to hold our loved ones close and say that we love them. Each and every day we have is a gift, be sure to enjoy the present.

There's a link to donate to red cross below and if you know fellow bloggers in Japan on twitter or on their blogs be sure to send them love and prayers. One lovely blogger I meet is The Lacquer spoon a super sweet lady who lives in Tokyo she used to comment here a lot before getting busy with work. I always smile as she studied in the UK for a while and understands the food and culture. Be sure to drop her a line or tweet to keep her spirits up, all in all folks are frightened and are still feeling after shocks a few virtual hugs would help :-)

    I just saw some footage of the devastation in Japan and even the damage that happened in Kona. I feel like I really dodged a bullet.
    I'm off to check out that Japanese blogger. I am a bit obsessed with Japanese food myself, of course.

  12. What a tragedy it is. Just goes on to show how life and the world is not in our control as we end up thinking. Praying for Japan and its people.

  13. Still following this tragedy and all the conflict in this world and often wonder how come we are so fortunate.

  14. Kulsum so true
    Rita I often think the same thing

  15. Dear Rebecca,

    I just found you mentioned what happened in Japan. Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers with us!

    As for my city that is Tokyo, our government is conducting a time-and-area based blackout to save energy after the explosion of a power plant in North-East Japan. The transportation and business is a kind of messy, but no panic I view.

    North-East Japan is heavily suffering a shortage of many things such as utilities, foods, medicines and blankets. And many people are still missing because of the mega tsunami waves.

    This is the biggest tragedy after the war, but we help each other and have a strong hope for the better future.

    My deep thanks also goes to other bloggers including Malou and Mariko, who encouraged me on Twitter and blog.

    Please let me writer to you later, but I would like to show my gratitude here.

    Best regards from Tokyo,

  16. It is such a horrific thing, I can't even imagine the fear. Thank you for the links and those effected will remain in our thoughts.

  17. the lacquer spoon your always in my thoughts and prayer hugs
    magic of spice i know its just awful
