Nothing To Squawk About

I never did post this blog. I thought it was such a common occurance that I wondered if it was perhaps not interesting enough to post. This morning I decided that not all blog posts will be out of the ordinary but should really exist to help us through the day to day life.

I did, by the way, make it to my destination. A little bit late but it was not much to squawk about. The following was written last weekend.


Sitting at an airport this morning with my flight delayed. Then delayed again. My connection has now changed three times. I am hoping that I really do make some sort of connection today. It is easy to feel discouraged or irritated. Two hours ago I was very frustrated but now...not so much. I mean I hope I am not stranded here forever but I know that I will eventually get there.

I think this is true of many things in life. We initially get irritated at things in life not lined up just the way we wish. And sometimes life just "happens" and plans are tossed aside. Or changed or delayed.


I was lined up (multiple times) at the gate kiosk. After changing flights and needing to yet again...I was told all flights to my destination are full. Even to other nearby airports. The representative from the airline even called me, of course he told me to just go a different day. Not helpful. But then a very helpful gate person said to just get to my first destination and get on standby for the next flight and try for each remaining flight. She said she thought for sure I would get on one.

Hope. So nice to have a plan and have hope. I am not sure what is going to happen the rest of my day. But I know that I won't remain here. I will get on my first flight, make attempts at other connecting flights. Until I get on the next plane. Persistence.

Don't give up, dear friend. Keep up the good fight. Stay true. Stand firm. Patiently await good things to come. They may not come when we wish but they Will come.

"I have fought the good fight. I have finished the course, I have kept the faith" II Timothy 4:7
