this week marks the second anniversary of the 2011 tsunami in rikuzentakata, japan that killed 19,000 people on march 11 - with the 'miracle pine', located in iwate prefecture, being rebuilt as a 27-meter monument in honor of the victims. the lone pine was the only one from approximately 70,000 plants along the coast to survive the catastrophe, however, its roots were found to be suffering irreversibly from exposure to seawater,
Two years ago, the Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami swept across the country’s coast wreaking untold amounts of damage. One of the quake’s victims was an old forest in Rikuzentakata, Iwate, which was obliterated by severe ground tremors and the crashing sea waves that followed. Of the 70,000 timbers that were felled, a sole tree survived. The ”miracle pine,” as it’s called by locals, withstood one of the greatest natural disasters recorded, only to perish in September 2012.
An artificially-restored 'miracle pine tree' that survived the March 11, 2011 tsunami is silhouetted against the rising sun in Rikuzentakata, Iwate prefecture, Japan. Japan marked the second anniversary of its earthquake, tsunami and nuclear catastrophe, that killed nearly 19,000 people in areas along Japan's northeastern coast. The 27-metre-tall tree, a single survivor among 70,000 trees in a forest along the coast, has just been restored in a project to preserve it.
Rest in Peace #RobinWilliams.

Successful people are not people without life problems. They are people who respond quickly and positively to their problems. They think them through in advance; they anticipate them. And when they can’t, they use the four-step method to resolve whatever difficulty they face. They define the problem clearly. They define the worst possible thing that could happen as a result of the problem.

Healing doesn't mean the damage never existed. It means the damage no longer controls out lives. Truth. This will be me when I overcome my ptsd and depression.
After my dad passed away something changed in me. The pain I was carrying around seemed minor. The love that control me became unimportant. I had moved on with life and enjoyed it emensly. But still didn't live life. Then I took on this whole new way of thinking. Positive thoughts and handing things over to God. That little change has completely turned my world around. I thank God for all my blessings ecery day..my son,family, friends and this wonderful relationship. I appreciate and love life.
Healing doesn't mean the damage never existed. It means the damage no longer controls our lives. So true
Healing doesn't belittle the pain and damage that you went through - it stops it from controlling your life. #freedom #healing #quotes

There is something about words. In expert hands, manipulated deftly, they take you prisoner. Wind themselves around your limbs like spider silk, and when you are so enthralled you cannot move, they pierce your skin, enter your blood, numb your thoughts. Inside you they work their magic. - Diane Setterfield

this is true...I remember a quote about illness---its dis-ease
It is hard for me to get to know good people with good boundaries because they immediately spot me as untrustworthy and don't give me personal information. What I see is only what they want me to see. They are different with non exploiters. They only show me what they think will bother me...which is a lot because I am terribly insecure.

This is how I feel about my Tiger. He passed away 8 lives too early at almost 10 years old. I miss him beyond words!
.How could these 2 not be the best friends in the whole world. Look at this man's face. So very loving. I could cry.
I absolutely LOVE THIS! It's such a sweet sight to behold! Not just because it's an elderly man but a man, in general, holding a cat, rather than a dog! It's such a precious moment to look upon. It warms my heart to the core! (Comment made by ME! Lisa!)
