5 years ago, there was the powerful earthquake in the Tohoku area, and I was so thankful to be surrounded by people who were helpful and hopeful. People went out of their way to help others, and despite the tragedy I realized what a truly wonderful place Japan is, and how wonderful Japanese people are. I hope that you are feeling hopeful for yourself and Japan on this memorial day.

Earlier in the week I mentioned about the “ly” suffix. Today we can see the “ful” suffix in use. When you add “ful” to a word, it creates the adjective of that word to describe something that is “full of” that thing. So today’s literally means “full of power”. Do you know any other “ful” words? Here are some:
helpful – someone is full of help, wants to help you as much as they can
thankful – full of thanks, very grateful
cheerful – full of cheer, very happy
wonderful – full of wonder, amazing
hopeful – full of hope, feeling positive
Do you know any others?
