Our friend, Yukiya Saito, is a Japanese businessman living in Dubai with his wife. When we learned of the earthquake in Japan, my husband called to find out how his family fared the disaster.
Fortunately, his family and his wife's are okay, but he did say that his associates at the office in Japan were stuck with no place to go. The Japanese rely heavily on the transit system and with no service and everything in chaos, they have no way to get home.
We visited Mr. Saito in Dubai a couple of years ago and he has come to Kuwait but we have yet to meet his wife. She doesn't speak English and is very shy because of that.
The news coming out of Japan is devasting and hard to imagine as we view images on our tv screens, safe and sound in our own homes. All we can do is pray!
Whatever our individual troubles and challenges may be, it’s important to pause every now and then to appreciate all that we have, on every level. We need to literally “count our blessings,” give thanks for them, allow ourselves to enjoy them, and relish the experience of prosperity we already have.”— Shakti Gawain
God bless us one and all! Friendship blessings, Tammy
