Reminder Day

18 years ago today we lived in Northridge California.We lived just a mile away from the epicenter of the Northridge Quake when it hit. It was just after 4 in the morning the the earth's furry showed its power.There really is not anything like being literally thrown out of bed with the loud frightening noise of the earth moving and shaking underneath you as well as hearing gas explosions very close near by.As our minds quickly grasped that this was not just a little shaker our minds raced to get to our babies and get out but, when the shaking is so hard it prevents you from getting anywhere fast and you realize just how vulnerable we all are.When we got out it soon became apparent our home was no longer livable as many were around our neighborhood.It was red tagged and our family was forced to move.Our family eventually resettled in a new home not far away but, the reminder of that day makes us always remember to be prepared both temporally and spiritually for things we may not expect.
