Dear Marie and all my other friends,

We just arrived back in Hong Kong a few hours ago and thanks to a personal email from Marie, I thought I should check this forum before retiring. What a surprise -- I obviously have many more friends that I imagined.

We were fortunate to see the wave in time to grab the camera bag, race for a stairway and get to the second floor before the entire first floor of the hotel was destroyed. The aftermath and the trip back has been a little exhausting., so I will have to write more later but I wanted you all to know how much your thoughts and good wishes mean to us.

Take care... and many thanks.

Don

In deep shock I am on my knees in thanksgiving:D :D :D :D :D :D

thank you for getting in touch as soon as you could Don
to hear that you both are ok is the greatest Christmas present ever


regards, Marie

As Horrific and terrible as this event is, It does point out how small the world is and how truly we are all connected. It is a shame that it takes something of this magnitude to remind us of how fragile life is and how blessed we really are.

I agree Sandy, thank you.
its so nice that we are all alive
and able to be in contact.
life is so precious
and time is so short

~
thank you , God, for little things
that often come our way
the things we take for granted
and don't mention when we pray

the unexpected courtesy
the thoughtful kindly deed
a hand reached out to help us
in our time of special need

oh, make us more aware Dear God
of little daily graces
that come to us with sweet surprise
from never -dreamed- of places
~

Were all so Glad that Don and leela made it home safe.

Don,.... thank you for getting out of there. Really thank you.

:( What a horrifying thing to have lived through.

I don't know what else to say.. so I'll just join Marie and post another glowing sheep, assuming that Marie would know if this is the correct thing to do at a time like this...  :p :o :mrgreen:

Relieved that you are both okay - I just cannot believe the news as it unfolds - it seems so unreal but so real!
