~Thoughts & prayers for L'Aquila Italy~

L'Aquila


~The above map shows where my Mother lived~
***
My thoughts & prayers are with the people of L'aquila Italy this day.
I have realives that live South of L'aquila, I'm worried about them..
I remember my Mother telling me stories about
the many earthquakes she lived through as a child.
She told me how her, my Grandparents & Uncle sleep outside for days
after an earthquake because of the after shocks.
When I traveled with my Mother to Italy (many years ago)
what a joy it was visiting all my relatives & seeing their way of life..
My Mother lived in a very small town called Liberi way up in the hills..
Please keep all these lovely people in your prayers
at this time of such devastation.
God bless them..
