Japan & Our Family

By Littlebigcompany1 @littlebigcompny
After the Second World War my Grandfather who was in the Australian Army was one of the first posted with his family (including my mother who was a baby at the time) to Japan as part of the peace and relationship building process. It was a big deal back then and my grandparents were photographed in all newspapers at the time. My Grandmother traveled for three weeks on a boat to Japan with three children under 4!  her house had beautiful artwork from Japan and huge Japanese plates and vases. Their time spent in Japan forged some solid friendships and my grandparents loved the people, the food, the art, the gardens...all of it....They lived in Japan for years and my mother's first language was Japanese.
My DS loves to learn Japanese and along side his very close friend who is Japanese is learning the language quickly, we went over to their house the other day to learn to make Sushi which was great fun!
In honor of Japan here is some inspiration and my thoughts are with them at this desperate time,  Poppies for Grace are donating 30% of their sales to the Japan Appeal from now until April 15 ....
