My Brother

I was going to do some sewing this morning. I have been revving up all week to finish my MPB shirt however was derailed this morning when Hubby woke me with a startle. He is never one to be alarming so I took notice. He woke me to tell me that there had been a huge earthquake in Japan, specifically Sendai which is where my brother and his wife live.

Immediately I turned to Facebook to see if he had made contact and he had, but this was before the tsunami had hit and I spent much of the morning listening to CNN and going back and forth to Facebook to see if he could or would make more contact.

Just about 15 minutes ago he made contact saying there were still lots of tremors but that he lives high on a mountain and is not in any danger from the water.

I am writing this more as a journal entry than as a blog post. The phone keeps ringing and now a news station wants to come out to the house. That's it for now.


  1. I'm praying for you all. Love you and I'll be thinking of you all day. (hugs)


  2. It's been very scary watching the coverage. I hope your brother continues to stay okay!

  3. So glad to hear that your brother and his wife are alright! Hope they continue to remain safe and sound :) Being on high ground is always good.

  4. Good grief! On a sewing blog, an entry titled "My Brother" -- I just assumed you were talking about your zigzagger.

    So glad to hear everything's OK!

  5. This is a fierce earthquake. It looks so devastating, I'm glad your brother and his wife are alright. We've been glued to the 24 hour news too... I was worried about a friend and her little kids in Tokyo but thankfully they are OK too and just shaken.

  6. :( I am glad he is all right!


I appreciate each and every one of your comments. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts with me.
