Two weeks ago when I was at the airport waiting for Rebeka’s plane to finally land I sat down and watched all of the people in the airport. People waiting, people leaving, people working, moms, dads, grandparents, husbands, wives, young and old. and as I sat there anxiously awaiting the arrival of my daughter and thinking about how much I have missed her these past few weeks, I thought about all of the people here waiting to greet their loved ones too. The airport is one place where you can actually feel the “love all around.”
All you have to do is look and see people arriving and hugging their loved ones, family, and friends. People who are serving our country coming home in uniforms and running to happily great their family that they have missed while overseas. Children arriving from a trip. Parents arriving to visit their grandchild for the first time. Husbands coming home from a business trip. Love is all around.
It’s a good visualization when you are feeling down; stop for a minute and think about how “loved” you are! Stop and think if you had been away how happy your family would be to greet you at “the airport.” I know it’s a visualization I will keep with me now forever.
