Had a really boring day today, walk was average but I did a lot of thinking about Karma. Karma refers to action driven by intention which leads to further consequence. I am a true believer of ...what you give out comes back tenfold. If you give out love, money, good deeds you will be gifted these back in spades. Of course this is not the reason to do it, the gift is in the giving, not the receiving. However when it does come back it is joyous because it wasn't expected. Nearly 30 years ago my ex-husband and I join an organisation called Youth For Understanding, its like a rotary exchange program. WE open our home and our our hearts to teenagers wishing to experience Australia for a period of 6 or 12 months. During our time with this organisation we met a variety of delightful young adults, one of them being a shy , dorky 16 year old boy from Japan , Yoshi Nunomura. I have been lucky enough to reconnect with him and his family in Japan and it has truly been delightful. Without his help and hospitality Japan would have been a very different experience.
Today I am grateful for family, not just those people we share blood with but those that we can rely on share laughter and tears. I am fortunate enough to have the best family in the world. I am grateful for
