It's Sadieday!

I'm happy it's Sadieday but really sad about all the people and animals affected by the Tsunami yesterday in Japan. We live an hour from the coast here in Oregon so I have been reflecting about the times I've gone to the beach and looked out at the ocean...
I never imagined that something that looks so beautiful could be so horribly destructive...
But no matter where we are, things can change in an instant so it's important to cherish every moment and live life to the fullest and with lots of love...
That's what I plan to do!

Hug the ones you love this Sadieday!
Sadie

What a lovely post Sadie. Those things are all so true. Got to enjoy every day, that is for sure. Our hearts go out to all the people affected by earthquake in Japan. It is all so sad.

Simba said...

Good thinking, Sadie. Tsunamis are so destructive - it seems the tsunami is what dd the most damage, more than the earthquake did.

Sadie, you are completely right. And we must appreciate and seize each moment we are given and love those we are given too. ♥

It sure is sad to see what has happened in Japan. My hubby says water is the most destructive force on the planet, and in second place . . . . . cats! LOL!

Terrible news :(
Watching the newsfeed is heartbreaking. Animals usually sense when there's danger approaching, so I hope most of them got to safety. At least the birds did.

Lin said...

Oh, it's so horrible, isn't it? Did you see any effects from the tsunami? I heard Hawaii and the west coast saw some tsunamis as well.

SCARY!

The Army of Four said...

Woo, Sadie. It's so terrible, isn't it? But the photos of you are just gorgeous.
I'm going to go hug my mom now.
Luv,
Dave

That is too true. I know that I take a lot for granted and this is something I need to work on. Even if things are going badly, I need to be thankful for what I have.
Have a great Sadieday :)

We are purring hard for those affected by the earthquake and tsunami.

Grace said...

I can't believe I got here so late and almost missed our walk - the ocean is beautiful but you shouldn't mess with Mother Nature!

Re said...

Sadie, simply beautifilled posting. Very thoughtful/thought provoking. I bet you get lots of hugs from your Mommy and Daddy.

Catherine said...

Mother Nature is an every changing wonder isn't she? Her powers are not to be taken lightly.

Hope you had a lovely Sadieday girl!
