Thank you so much, Beverly,
for hosting this meme every week.
This week while at the airport,
yes, I know I'm there a lot,
I sat beside a young man.
I picked up my knitting and he turned to me and said,
I was shocked.
I thought he might be talking on the phone,
He was talking to me.
He proceeded to tell me, at twenty,
this was his first time flying
and he was frightened.
I told him my story about the little girl
who sat beside me and was also on her
I told her I fly twice a week -at least -
and had been flying that much for
She nodded and asked me,
So how many times have you crashed?
The young man laughed with me.
I encouraged him all would be well.
On the plane a very nice older woman asked to sit beside me.
She had an overstuffed bag and when she
leaned over to dig something out
I thought perhaps yarn?
she dug out
Then she proceeded to pray and cross herself.
For a brief moment I wondered,
if I was being told something.
But no, the flight was uneventful.
But both people were looking for something.
The young man, confirmation that
following his dreams was a legitimate choice.
My opinion: Always follow your dreams.
The older woman, an encouraging word.
She was flying to Texas to be with an ailing mother.
My opinion: Always follow your heart.
I too received something.
Blessings from them both.
The only thing I had to do, was
follow my dream, follow my heart and then open my mouth..
I hope your day is filled with blessings.
