All shook up

I'm thankful that I had no real reason to be scared even though I was scared of the earthquake tonight because I live in a solid home that's built to just sway. And sway it did! I'm thankful I have such a wonderful husband who always makes me feel calm when I'm freaked out. And I'm thankful that while the cats (who were on my lap at the time) fled, the dogs stayed by my side. I know it's quite overdramatic to say, but moments like that, no matter how small, are a good reminder of how thankful I am to be alive.


  1. ACK!!! Get thee away from that state! I read about this when I woke up this morning, and wondered if you felt if.
    I'm glad for your sturdy house, and the loyal dogs, and the stalwart hubby, too! And anything that reminds us of the gift of life is a blessing in itself.

  2. Nary a shake of shimmy registered in Connecticut. Hm...
