I have not read anything but the headlines when my heart dropped through my toes. Since December, there are so many people that have touched my heart as we've grown close working together on getting the Opuses delivered.
When I saw "Earthquake in Chile" in the news this morning-- my first thought was to write Byfepo and Paly to make sure they and their families both are okay. I just sent the email, so I haven't heard anything from either of them yet.
Please keep the people of Chile in your hearts today. I have asked if there is anything we can do either for our two friends or the country.
I will keep you posted. You can read about the 8.8 earthquake here
Updates: Chile Thankfully I heard from Paly earlier today. I have still not yet heard from Byfepo. I am worried but I know there are still places in Santiago where there is no communications available. As the death toll rises, I ask each of you to pray, ask your higher power and ask to keep the people of the earth safe.
There was strong aftershock in Argentina. Our Velvet is there.
There are also reports of a possible tsunami for Japan and Russia. The tsunami for Japan is expected possibly within the hour as I write this. I just heard there is also a warning for the Philippine Islands.
Keep updated internationally on CNN here
Because of the Opus, each of these countries contains people I have talked to over the last several months, and in many cases a friendship has developed...over the Opus. I sit tonight terrified for each of your safety. Please be safe, and please either email or leave a message as soon as you can. Each and every one of you are so important to me.
My prayers are with you.
