Blueberry waffles,Boxing Day and Bitchy Mother Nature

It's is hard to forget that a year ago today, Mother Nature took over 300,000 lives in the largest natural disaster in my lifetime. The tsunami in Asia had a profound effect on me and made me look at the ocean in a totally different way.

So as we sit for a lovely Boxing Day breakfast of whole wheat blueberry waffles, I can't help but think of the victims and feel blessed that I am sitting here with my family.

Remembering the Tsunami certainly puts any trivial complaints we may have into persepective, doesn't it.

I don't know how people ever recover from tragedy like that, especially when they have lost numerous family members, as also occurred in New Orleans and Pakistan.

Yes, we do have a great deal to be thankful for.

We have been thinking about that too. Amazing the tragedy and its unpredictability. Live life today, who knows what tomarro could bring.

Hmmm yummy! Yes your are right, we are blessed indeed and I have a strange feeling towards the ocean as well since the Tsunami. It's like a time bomb!

Last night before I went to sleep we were watching a program about it. Big mistake. It took me forever to fall asleep and then it woke me up early with images of it. I should really know better!
