NZ update

It's been a crazy time here in NZ as we come to terms with the horrific news of another devasting earthquake in Christchurch. I am lucky enough to be far away from the trauma and upset but nonethless have been involved in the military response to the incident. I know many of you will have been concerned and I am touched by the level of care out there. I am fine as is all of my family. I am truly blessed and can only pray for those who are still waiting to hear news of their loved ones.

Wondered about you this morning when my civil ... can't recall what cousin checked in. They're all fine; one of her daughters' homes was condemned, but everyone else is still sleeping in their own beds so to speak.

Stay safe!!

I'm glad to hear you are doing okay ~ it's so frightening when mother nature strikes. Here in SoCal we are always aware that at any time we may have a big one.

I feel a little guilty. Ever since the news of the quake in Christchurch, I intended to pop over to you to check which island you lived on. Glad to see you are safe and away from any danger. Whenever NZ is mentioned I think of you. x
