Tears, Pride and cancelled flights!!

To say our trip to San Antonio was wonderful would be an understatement.  My son, an Airman now, made me cry.  How gentle and patient he was with his dad.  How he pushed husband around everywhere for 3 days, with not one complaint.  The look on his face when he saw the damage that's being done to husband in the last 8 1/2 weeks.  Our goodbye Saturday night was bittersweet.  I cried, Jack cried.  Husband was in his own world by then.  Lost.

How yesterday, flying out of San Antonio with mixed feelings.  How arriving in Dallas to catch our next plane to Albuquerque, only to find out our flight had been cancelled!!  So, there I was, with husband, who by this time was a complete mess, stranded in Dallas for 8 hours!  Oh, yes, that was fun.

We arrived home last night at 11:00 PM.  Needless to say, I am exhausted, and will post pics by this afternoon.

All in all, with being stranded in Dallas, with seeing my son graduate, experiencing difficulty with husband, it was well worth it.

As tired as I am this morning, my heart is full.


  1. Glad that it all went okay except for the wait. I'm sure you were proud of your son. I'm surprised they couldn't help you get a quicker flight. What did you do for 8 hours. That had to be hard.

  2. I am so glad to hear that things went well and that you are home safely. I've been checking every day now. Please write more when you feel up to it (?)

    How wonderful you are to make this happen for your son, your husband, and for YOU! It is so so so so wonderful to hear that your heart is full. You deserve it!


  3. Good to get the update. Been thinking of your trip and how it's been going. Welcome home. Congratulations on your son's accomplishment - and yours for traveling there and back.
