People close to me know that my greatest fear was to experience a large earthquake in Japan. For the first year we were there, it was my routine every night before I went to sleep to go through my personal earthquake drill. I needed to know the location of my keys, shoes, and coat. I went through the plan of where we would go if we had to leave our house in a hurry, and just how I would wake the kids in the event we had to flee in the night. Then my final prayer before I slept would be for protection.

7.1 Quake Hits off Japan
Japan's 7.1 magnitude earthquake this morning reminded me of something a blogger who I follow wrote last month. She and her family recently lived in Japan for a few years before moving to Qatar at the beginning of this year.
