"Me, me, me, me, me! On my way home from vacation I encountered difficulty flying home. I started at 9pm Saturday in Las Vegas and walked into the Collaborative (my car was here) at 5:30 pm on Monday. The weather in Las Vegas was beautiful and the weather here was good. No problem, right? I didn’t take into account the enormous amount of damage caused by storms, flooding and tornados in between. I was angry, tired and miserable hanging in an airport. I wish I could say I suffered in silence. I thought I was such a good Christian because I felt worse for the little kids who were stuck and their parents.

Monday morning, sitting in Orlando (long story) .I was watching the weather and saw the destruction. Then it hit me, I was more concerned about getting home and forgetting about all those people who no longer had a home. The inconvenience of eating airport food versus not knowing where to get a meal. I could change my clothes while others could not find their clothes or belongings in the rubble. The airport was safe and air conditioned . We were safe and fine. Others were not so lucky.

I don’t sleep on airplanes. We boarded our flight. I said a prayer for all those people going through these natural disasters, took a heavy sigh and woke up 2 hours later.

Life is hard and can be unfair. Always remember no matter how bad your situation may be someone else may be in a worse situation. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those effected by these natural disasters."
