Words for Wednesday
Ain't that the truth?? I feel like it is a small miracle that I made it back from Arizona yesterday.
I didn't feel well all yesterday morning but couldn't put my finger on what it was, and just tried to ignore it since I wanted to enjoy my last morning in the AZ sun. By the time I got to the airport in the afternoon I was not feeling too hot at all and it kinda sucked to say goodbye to my family and venture through the airport by myself. Normally I like doing that, but when you feel sick you just want to be with your family or someone who knows you!
My little "miracle" yesterday was the kindness of strangers that I encountered.
I almost lost my somewhat new and pretty treasured Chanel sunglasses, but a cleaning lady at the airport saved them for me when she could have so easily taken them. I'll count that as miracle #1.
My second incident was on the plane, like I mentioned I had felt like crap and kind of flu-ish all afternoon and could barely even stand in the line to board the plane. When we were finally ready to take off I had a mini freak-out because I knew I couldn't get up and use the bathroom and I felt like I was going to puke. I had to grab my doggie bag and I started breathing really heavy. The people across the aisle from me must have saw my distress and called a flight attendant over. I promptly started crying like a five year old and told her I thought I was sick. She brought me back kleenexes and cold towels. It was so nice and I was reminded how kind and caring perfect strangers can be.
And just for the record, I did regain composure and start acting like a normal, mature 26 year old again. Once we were up in the air though, I promptly went to the bathroom and got sick. Worst flight ever. I guess I had a touch of the flu, feeling weak today, but much better.
I thought this quote was very fitting for today. I'm thankful for my little miracles yesterday and every day.
