Missed Spouse flight


So I had signed up to go on a Spouse incentive flight. ( When they take the spouses on a flight  in the plane that the base has.) I was really excited but my only issue was that it was at 7am. I knew that my daugter would need to stay with a friend overnight since I needed to leave at 630am. 

She has been having some troubles sleeping at night and knew this wouold be tricky. Everything was going as planned until she started texting me at 11pm

I knew this was not going to be good. So we texted back and forth and I tried to giver her lots of encouragemtn and assurance.

At 1245 am I picked her up.  :-(

I was mad because I really wanted to go on the flight and I was mad at the fact that--- I was mad. LOL  I want her to know that she can count on me and I will always chose her first but was really bummed that she couldn't handle this.  We had a rough morning and then we moved on with our day and it was fabulous.

That afternoon I called one of the spouses to ask how it went. THEY NEVER WENT. I couldn't believe it. The plane broke-(who would have guessed)- so they never took off. They have rescheduled it and thank my lucky stars it is while my mom is here. My daughter was so excited that it didn't take off. She felt so relieved. She was tormenting herself that she ruined mommy's day. No worries!

It just goes to show that thinsg happen for a reason. I am so glad I picked her up and made her feel like she is number one. If I hadn't and then we never took off I would have felt just beyond horrible.

Many Blessings,
