This weekend there's been a dark cloud hanging over me. Whether it's the result of the bleak book I'm reading, or just thinking about the situation in Japan, I am a bit troubled by the state of the world. Lying awake at night, as I'm prone to doing, I find myself thinking about how lucky I am, to live the life I'm living with a healthy child, a comfortable home, food to eat, and great medical care. So much suffering happens around the world (and even in our backyard) that I regularly remind myself of how good I have it here, despite the failing economy and other American ills.
I'm keeping the people of Japan in my heart, since I do believe in the power of prayer and intention. I'm pretty certain you're doing the same.
