Everyday Inspiration Day Eight: Sisters’ Trip to Cancun

Dear Brooke,

It was great talking to you Saturday. I’m really excited about our trip to the Riviera Maya next month! I think it was a small miracle that we decided to go online and check our plane reservations. It was scary to discover that my flight to Atlanta to connect with you for our flight to Cancun had been discontinued. I can’t believe that the airlines didn’t notify me! Ugh! Thanks for being calm while I was falling apart.

I called the airlines after we talked and told them I had to be on the same flight with you, as you suggested. The customer service person, a delightful young man named Alex, asked me what flight I wanted to be on since my original one was canceled. I didn’t expect such a simple question. I shuffled through the many pages of flight information I had and came up with your flight number. No problem. He asked if I was OK departing at 9 AM. I told him of course, he had just made my day. He even got me a seat two rows behind you. It’s a relief to have that settled.

Things got better. I was on a roll and called the car service that usually gives me a ride to the air port. I had heard that Richard was moving to California but hoped he hadn’t left yet. He is still here and I got my rides scheduled. Got that settled. Now on to thinking about what to pack and the fun stuff of traveling.

Love,

Ina
