SIGH..

I am going to post a little differently today. This blog is all about me, but today.. it's not. By now everyone is aware of the devastation in southern california. Yes, I live here. Yes, I have been affected. No, I didn't get evacuated. No, I didn't lose my home. However, seeing all of the aftermath of the thousands of people stranded at Qualcom stadium and the multitude of other venues certainly made me think. I read about a woman whose strength came from her 4 year old daughter. That spoke volumes to me. We all take for granted all of our "posessions". We never stop to think that in an instant they could be gone. I don't want to talk about the precautions to take and all that, because it's all over the news daily. You all know that by now.
Life is really short. Hug your kids. Your spouse/significant other. Appreciate each day that you have here with them. I'm not big on praying (although I should try it more often) but I do pray for all of these people every day for the strength they need to get thru what may be the most difficult time of their lives.
I can only imagine.

We never understand how little we need in this world until we know the loss of it
