Day 2 after #chch #eqnz No. 2

I was so proud of my Miss Seven today!  We met a school friend at the supermarket and they mentioned the had no water on.  We had a barrel of rainwater, so we filled a container, and put it in a little block trolley to take to them.  Miss Seven really wanted to be the one to push it, and did so the entire 1.3km.  She was so determined – I offered to take a turn pushing, or to stop for a rest when we were about half way there, but she insisted on keeping going.  “I know I can, I know I can, I can do this”.


I think she really wanted to do something to be able to help someone.  That’s about 25 litres of water she’s pushing.

I’ve been appreciating all the online support from all my friends and contacts.  People out of town are asking how they can help and the answer is keep thinking of and praying for us, and even sending a note or message to let us know just helps lift us up emotionally.  Being able to chat about my experiences with people who aren’t just as upset as I am helps too.

Seeing some of the media coverage just brings back all the feelings again.  I’ve tried praying, especially for those still trapped and missing, but I just choke up and can’t get past the emotional rawness.  So I really appreciate hearing of other people praying where I can’t. 

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers.
