My husband and I had a sleepy start to our great Carmelite feast this morning.
Our alarm went off at 5:00 AM and we both complained about achy joints and sore eyes. For a few minutes we debated whether to sleep in for another half an hour or rouse ourselves immediately to start our Morning Prayer routine.
Then an earthquake got us out of bed in a hurry!
It was crazy. I've never been in an earthquake before. Washington D.C. is not known for being an earthquake zone.
