Sometimes life will come in and throw us a curve ball just when we feel the game is going our way. My grandson Jason, the young Marine was being deployed and we the family were thrilled he wasn't going to Irac or Afganistan but to friendly, lovely Japan.
He arrived in Japan and had been there several weeks when the earthquake and Tsunami hit. Needless to say we are all devastated as he is in Tokyo now helping with the aftermath of the disaster.
This reminds me of a saying my mother taught me and uses a lot even today:
"Watch what you ask for, you just might get it!"
