Over the last week

This morning I turned on the news in the hopes that there would be good news about the nuclear plant in Japan. All over the world this past week we have watched the tragic and horrifying events. It has been heartbreaking. I just wanted to say to the people of Japan that you are in my prayers.

I am going to be away from home for a few days but I will check in when I can.

It is hard to imagine the horrors that the Japanese have had to endure this past week. They are in my prayers.
Wishing you and yours a Happy St Patrick's Day and week!

But what a wonderful shot to brighten the day.

Have a nice break.

You'reright-- such horrible news from Japan. My son-in-law's three uncles and their families survived the initial quakes and tsunami, but no one knows what will happen now with the radiation. When even rescue workers are afraid to enter a zone, you know you're in big trouble. All we can do is pray for them all, and hope for the best, I guess. And hope that the radiation clouds don't spread, worldwide.

Yes, it's so sad. And after earthquake and tsunami, which were plenty bad enough, it's horrible to see the uncertainty and terror over the nuclear plant problems.
Hope you have a good few days away.

Pretty picture!

Japan needs all the prayers we can muster up. Looks pretty grim. What they need is rain, to get the radiation out of the air and work on the rest later. The whole situation is so bad.

Enjoy your time off!

It's a constant worry. I wish there was a way to get our relatives out of Sendai and out of harm's way.

Very pretty flower and so spiny looking. I heard on the Today show this morning that the death toll is now 9,500 and I think they are still working on the power plant, we are all praying for them. It seems like a lot of disasters are happening lately. Be careful and be safe.
