Shrimp or Chicken Fried "Rice"

I wanted to start off this blog by sending out prayers to the people in Japan. As you all probably already know by now (because it has been all over the news), Northern Japan had an 8.9 magnitude earthquake with a death toll in the thousands which continues to grow daily. The final death toll count may never be determined. So many people have lost their loved ones, their homes, their jobs, their lives and their morale all in a matter of seconds. This goes to show you to embrace life and appreciate what you do have because it can be taken away from you when you least expect it. Love every minute of it and don't sweat the small stuff. It just isn't worth it in the end. I know they have a long and difficult road to recovery and some may never recover emotionally or physically at all, but I wanted to acknowledge the pain and suffering they must be going through at this moment. I know it isn't much, but every little bit helps so I decided to donate a small bit of money to the Japan Tsunami Fund on Pay Pal. I encourage everyone do so if you can spare it. It doesn't even have to be for Japan. It could be for another organization you feel strongly about. Truthfully, it doesn't even have to be monetary. There are other ways you can help organizations without spending money, but by giving a little bit of your time. What better way to go through life than to know that you have helped others in some way. I truly feel that is the best gift you can give anyone is the offer of help in those in need. My husband commented to me the other day that his goal in life was to help as many people as he can during his lifetime. He feels strongly that this is his purpose in life. I told him, "well, you can scratch me off your list because you have already helped me in sooo many ways!" He is my inspiration and I am so proud to call him my husband. What is your inspiration?

This photo is taken in Afghanistan. There is a flag hanging up in the place he is working at currently so he decided to take a photo in front of it for me. Awww, so sweet! For his protection, I have covered his last name with a heart which is also why I deleted my last name on my blog. Oh, you thought I put that heart there because it looks cute? Yeah, it does kind of look cute too! : )
