Good Morning, God!
THANK YOU! Kit and I made it safely to the Newark Airport yesterday. Of course, God, we WANTED to go first to the Fairfield Inn.
But, my trusty Google Maps App couldn’t get us the last dozen complex turns going to the Fairfield Inn. We ended up at the back of the airport — or maybe it was back of the Port of Newark?
We could SEE the Fairfield Inn — once or twice — across 16 lanes. Aieee! But, the REALLY good news, God, is that we kept it all together — no yelling and falling apart!
Well, OK, maybe a little falling apart . . . but we are doing better at “Regrouping!” I tried Google yet again — this time with a different hotel as destination and we made it to . . . the PRISON? Who knew there was a BIG PRISON so close to the airport. But, following the policeman’s directions to the Inn — we made it to the Airport! And, once there, we turned in the car and caught the shuttle to the Inn.
Ah, God! We are BLESSED to live here in this Space and Time. To travel by car and not covered wagon. To have freeways that take us in an afternoon from Outer Boston to New Jersey. Still, I admit, to “pining” for a Star Trek kind of Travel! The “Just Beam Me Up” type travel.
But, as You pointed out during my shower, Travel isn’t about Arriving — it, like Life, is all about the Getting There. Yesterday, Kit and I had several opportunities to practice Regrouping — a Very Useful Skill.
But, please, God, don’t give us anymore opportunities to practice it today!
