Something to Talk About

We've all been sick and tired of talking about COBID-19 so today Mother Nature decided to give us something else to talk about.... a 5.7 magnitude earthquake! I had not experienced an earthquake since my family moved to Utah from Southern California so, honestly, it took me a minute to figure out what was going on. I was more surprised than anything else.

Luckily we're okay as is our home and other family in the area but on top of everything else that is happening in the world we are rattled. There were no reports of injuries anywhere so that is something to be thankful for. It feels that just as everything is going to calm down something else happens. There is so much fear and uncertainty going around right now and no end in sight. All I could think about was that if something tragic happened, I haven't hugged my parents and sisters in over a week. 

I saw my youngest sister for a few minutes last night because she was sweet enough to bring me a 25 pound bag of flour. She stood at the bottom of the stairs on our stoop and I was at the top in order to respect the six foot rule. I almost cried when I saw her.

As uncertainty continues to be on our minds I wanted to focus on the good things. We are having tacos for dinner (which I've been craving for days!), I was able to get a good workout and run outside done, and I have flour to bake. I know how fortunate we are.

The pictures and videos I add are so that I can remember what is happening. Don't mind them!
