10 Years ago, a boy met a girl…
Well, well, well… what a short or long 10 years… depends on who you’re talking to! 10 years ago yesterday, I met my husband. Of course, at the time, I had no idea he was gonna even apply for the job but nonetheless… here we are. So as I’m sitting here reminiscing, I decided to pull up my journal from 2000… here’s the entry from April 1, 2000…
Today was a long day but fun. I got called at the last minute for a day trip on the jet and my captain was very nice. When I got to my plane that morning, I boarded and looked to the left (cockpit) and saw no one so I began my pre-flight activities in the galley. I was singing my little songs and just happy in general. I’m sure I looked pretty stupid but since I had looked in the cockpit, I was sure I was alone. Then I turned to go the back of the plane to check the emergency equipment and jumped about 10 feet because there was my captain, sitting in row 2! I asked him how long he’d been sitting there and he said ‘the whole time.’ And was laughing!
I introduced myself with my embarrassed face and then went about my duties, thinking this would be a long day because now, my captain thought I was an airhead. Well, we ended up laughing about it and had a nice day together. He tried to get my phone number but I’m just not ready for that stuff right now. He seems nice enough though but my judgement really stinks these days! Maybe I’ll ask John Goodson to check him out. On the bus ride back to our cars, he moved over to sit beside me and tried to ask me for my email address. I just didn’t feel comfortable with that. He ended up giving me his email address but I don’t know whether I’ll email him or not. We’ll see. Anyway, the skies were beautiful today. Good day for a plane ride.
I read this now and laugh, obviously, because I was very cautious just because I’d been out with a few losers in the past so I didn’t really trust myself at all! The Lord has been so good to me. I’ve had the best 10 years of my life. Today was a special day at the boys’ school because we celebrated cancer survivors by participating in the relay for life.
My boys walked with me in honor of my grandmother, Mamiee, who is a cancer survivor; Chuck’s stepmom, Winnie, fighting cancer as we speak; Chuck’s dad, Dick, lost his battle in June of 08; my maternal grandmother, lost her battle many many years ago; and numerous other relatives. I was touched to see the boys walking and actually thinking about all the people we need to pray for about this disease. They were actually paying attention today about what was going on and they were amazed at how many people had been touched by this. It’s sobering. In their prayers tonight, they prayed for Winnie’s healing, like they always do but tonight they prayed for all the sick people.
I guess that’s my ONE THING for today… I’m thankful for my health and the health of my family. Thank You Lord.
Keep it Simple,
