On Thursday about 4:30pm my husband called my cell phone asked if I was sitting down. I mentioned that I was driving and his comment was “good you are sitting down”. He said that his work asked him to go to Tokyo. He left about an hour ago for the airport, less than 48 hours after the initial conversation. His return ticket is for 2 weeks from now. However, the exact length of his trip is unknown. His work decided that he might have knowledge to help with the earthquake disaster cleanup. He is not excited about going but also thinks that he may be able to help.
He has traveled for work before. It was always inside of the US and often for advanced training. We have been making calls and getting him packed. We sent water in his suitcase and forks/spoons (so at least he can eat with them in his room). I have encouraged my girls to eat with chopsticks when we have oriental food, he never does.
Us girls will be just fine, and he will be also. It just reminds us all how small the world really is and how things can change so quickly.
Please keep us all in your prayers.
