Said goodbye to Scott and the boys this morning. They headed to IN for the first time without me. Sad but proud moment. They are going to have a great time, but I can't wait to bring them to AK, though.
After saying my goodbyes, I finished getting ready and headed to Emory University Hospital to visit my father-in-law. The hospital is very difficult for me to be in -the sights, sounds, smells are overwhelming. I couldn't stay long in the ICU at all. Didn't want to have them picking me up off the floor...
Time to head to the airport...left the truck for Scott at the Park 'n Fly lot and off I went with my suitcase and a smile. Everything at the airport went smoothly. Even had the opportunity to help a lady who was quite overwhelmed with our busy airport. Sometimes helping someone is just a glance away, if we take the time to look around us. Also chatted with a lady and her daughter at the gate. They were headed to Alaska for the first time. She stated that the airport has changed alot since she had been there last...10 years ago. This is hard for me to imagine. Flying has become such a normal part of my life, I can't imagine not being at the airport for more than a few months let alone years. Although, I don't have the points to prove it, I feel like a frequent flyer. :)
