This morning my cell phone rang at work. It was my beautiful daughter Alex and she NEVER calls me at work. I could tell something was wrong as soon as I heard her voice. She had experienced her first EARTHQUAKE. She said it woke her up, shaking the bed for four or five seconds.

I know earthquakes are the "norm" to folks from California . . . but to a mama from Missouri 1,800 miles away from her baby girl it's not normal at all!!!
I reassured her (and myself) and reminded her that earthquakes are commonplace for California, but I know she was pretty upset. And I was upset too.
So if you could say a few extra prayers for her today I'd sure appreciate it!!!
