claim to fame

I can't believe the tsunami in Thailand was three years ago today. It seems like forever since that happened and since we were there. This is our claim to fame: we left Phuket 2 days before the tsunami hit. Our original plan was to stay there until New Year's but had changed plans just before leaving. We are definitely grateful we didn't end up staying. We stayed on Patong Beach and it was one of the hardest hit beaches. I remember where I was when I saw the tsunami on the news. I felt a sinking feeling and said a silent prayer. I had never felt more of a purpose for my life than I did that day.
