Close enough…

Uncle Sesing passed away last week. Hubby went to Milpitas, Ca with mom (Lola) to attend the funeral. He left by car on Thursday and drive about 10-12 hours to get there. When he got there, he called me the same evening and both he and my mom wanted to buy a ticket for me to attend the funeral today. I thought they were kidding, but they weren’t. I got an email with my itinerary for Southwest airlines for a flight at 7:30am in the morning. It was going to be a 2 hour flight, which would arrive in time for the 9:30am funeral service. Wow right?

I had to wake up 4:30 am in the morning to get ready and then my brother in law drove me to the airport.

When I got there, I had a flashback and I nearly cried. I felt like I was in the moment for some reason. There was a rush of excitement and I really enjoyed watching people just do their thing as they prepared their bags and luggage for flight to wherever they were going. The last time I rode a flight close to Thanksgiving time was when I left for Maryland to spend the holidays in the east coast. It was the first Thanksgiving I had ever spent with him. We cooked dinner and had a meal with just the two of us. I remember thinking, “Life is going to be perfect.”

Then I was brought back to reality. I called my hubby to see his smiling face and I wanted to cry even more. I missed my hubby. I wished that I wasn’t flying the plane alone. But what made me smile is the fact that he wanted me to be there with him. He asked my mom for permission if I could go and got me the perfect itinerary (plus business class!) I felt special.

We face timed for awhile and even had breakfast with him live. He was so tired! But he still tried to stay up for me.

As I stared at his tired eyes, I could see the fine wrinkles that peaked around his eyes. I long to see more of those wrinkles.

As my flight went above the clouds, I was able to capture this beautiful view of the sunrise.


This image captures my vision as to being as close to heaven.

Everything was so beautiful, so free, so peaceful. I think I could fly endlessly without a doubt.

Thank you Lord for my blessings. Thank you for this perfect life. It isn’t where and WHO I thought I would be with, but I know that you’re always watching out for me… Please do the same for my Luv, for my kids, and my family.

I Love You Babes!
