I am leaving today to go visit daughter and family in California. I have had some qualms about this trip.

My parents have both been in the hospital – they are getting good care, and I can not do anything to make them better except as they said to take the trip and bring them back lots of pictures.

I may never again have the chance to go, so I am.

The second qualm, is that although I have flown before, I am still terrified of it. The closer it gets to time to leave here for the airport, the more panicked I am getting. I know that is totally irrational, but there it is!

It’s all packed up, the boarding passes printed, the nerves are frazzled… I’m ready.    Prayers appreciated!
