January 12- 10:30 am

We are stuck in an airport.

We don’t know for how long.

We were loaded onto the plane and were waiting to push away from the gate…home was two hours away. Then the announcements was made, “We have a mechanical issue and we do not know how long it will take to fix. We are going to de-board the plane. Please take all of your items with you.”

“..I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you…we are in charge of our attitudes.” -Charles Swindoll

My husband said, “Better than dying.”

I said, “I like safe planes.”

No one really complained.

Back in the airport things were a little more questionable. Connecting flights and other issues arose. The airline is keeping us posted.

The next flight out is being affected. The next flight arriving at this gate is being affected.
