New Zealand.....

Just to let everyone who has been emailing to ask if Diana is ok know - yes, she is absolutely fine. She was in Christchurch a little while back but is not there now. Her friends are also fine, but the city is battered and bruised and the devastation is awful.

My friend, Linds's son happened to be in Christchurch on business, and missed being in one of the buildings which is rubble now, by minutes. His car was tossed over the road, but he is fine. He saw things he never want to see again. Absolute devastation.

So it has been a high adrenalin sort of day, and I am so so thankful that everyone I know and love is okay. But your prayers for the people of Christchurch and New Zealand would be wonderful. So much loss, grief and shock.

Hey - I just love you all you know - you care. And it means the world to me.

I am so thankful, Linds, that all is okay with Diana. That was my first thought. Yes, those folks need many prayers. It had to be devastating for everyone.

I have just scampered from being in front of the tv screen to get here. The evening news was the first I'd heard about New Zealand and I knew that Diana was there. Soooo glad to learn that she was not in Christ Church and is well. What frightening pictures coming across the waves. Much love to you...this connection we feel to the world and this "knowing" people all over the globe. And, yes, I am praying.

I, too, thought of Diana when I first heard the news and am so glad to hear that she is safe. Glad that your friend's son is okay as well.
