Happy Thanksgiving

I'm thankful for my three happy and healthy grandchildren. My beautiful, intelligent, and caring daughters. For the best son-in-laws a mother could have. For my incredible husband who has put up with this airline industry and me flying off without complaint. Thank you Mom for telling me I could do anything I wanted. And Dad, for always working for me and my sisters. 

I'm thankful for the incredible people I've met over the previous year. My writing friends who have motivated, supported and held my hand along my writing journey.  My blogging friends who've taken the time to read, respond, and leave me the greatest messages. My twitter friends who I can always count on for a tweet, a smile, and support with whatever I'm doing.

And to my friends, young, old, past, present, flying and retired--- Thank you all for being part of my life, and always making me laugh! Thank you Kathy.

For all of you who are flying today, the traveling public thanks you for giving up time with your family, so they can spend the holiday with theirs. I'm on short call, the snow is falling, and I'm hoping all pilots make it to work in Seattle today so I can stay home. 

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Enjoy the Journey~
