Last night was a sleepless night at our home as we gathered our water and checked our hurricane supplies in preparation for the Tsunami. Yet, we are still very blessed. While the first appearance of the bare reef off Diamond Head caused fear, Oahu only had minor damage to our boat harbors. Maui and the Big Island had more damage, but still minor compared to Japan.
I am also aware of how fortunate I am to have so many people who care about me. Many of my follow bloggers, old friends, and family reached out via Facebook and e-mail to offer prayers and/ or good wishes as they held my family in their thoughts. My family called me first thing this morning to make sure we are okay. I am grateful for all of those who reached out.
Hawaii is truly blessed as we were spared devastation from a Tsunami. I know many of you have already seen footage of Japan. I ask that you continue to send them prayers. Many in Hawaii have family in Japan and many Japanese are frequent visitors here, so their loss will be felt here as well.
With Much Gratitude and Aloha,
How frightening for you. Glad you’re safe.
It was frightening, but at least things turned out well for us. We are hoping our young friend will get to come home soon so she too is out of harms way. She thankfully, is in Tokyo, not an area affected by the tsunami and the family she is staying with is supportive. I just cannot imagine being twenty and so far from away from family while dealing with the events in Japan. I am glad they put off the rolling blackouts for now.
