A 7.2 earthquake shook Southern California on Easter Sunday. Thankfully, my hubby, kids and I were in the safest place possible; visiting family in Louisville, Kentucky. I had posted on March 23rd, 2010 that a big earthquake was predicted to rock us by March 26th….so I was a week off! Sheesh... what a crapshoot that this Big Momma would shimmy California so close to my post? Like they say, “God works really slow, but He is always right on time.” He, he!
After hearing of Mother Nature’s Easter jiggle, I can only hope your Sunday was full of calm and peace. Mine sure was. Here are picutres of us flying kites Sunday morning. Not a rumble, quiver or quaver to be found.
How many of you ran out and bought water and supplies suggested on the previous earthquake post? I am positive that if my California friends haven’t yet, they will be checking this off their list soon. Nothing like a Big-Momma-Quake to motivate (yeah, it sort of rhymes). I mentioned before, I hate, fear and despise earthquakes (stress the word hate). When my California lifeline called me twenty minutes after the quake, all I could do was praise God that we were Far, Far Away (Think Shrek...story-book happy, minus the Ogres and donkey).
Riding a unicycle is like life. To be successful and enjoy the ride, they both require tremendous balance and focus. I sit up tall, shoulders back and imagine I am holding one of my young boys under each arm. My best-friend-techie-husband’s hand on my seat (hubba, hubba) to guide me, and my two wiener dogs running alongside, looking like double Dumbos. As I train to ride Blanche, my unicycle, in a half-marathon, I think how good God is as the breeze blows my brown hair, a big smile on my face. Come along for a thrilling one-wheel ride while I do my best to maintain balance... but keep an open mind, there is always something new to learn!
