My sponsor was off to see her sponsor in another state the other day. She had confirmed her ride to the airport from me, and was looking forward to seeing her dear friend and sponsor for a one on one visit.
It didn’t happen. We made sure she arrived at the airport on time, she boarded the plane, they were on the tarmack – but the weather South of us chose not to cooperate. They reboarded a couple of times, and then 5 hours later the flight was cancelled. My sponsor called me to request a ride home and she had the best attitude about the whole thing. She’ll be seeing her sponsor in a few more weeks, and it just wasn’t meant to be this weekend. It’s always helpful to have that accepting attitude reinforced and renewed in my consciousness and see the grace of a Higher Power in action right before my eyes.
So I picked her up, drove her home and she had a peaceful, cozy evening. We laughed about how the unexpected can shift our plans, and I was grateful that she’s safe and sound thanks to the good work of airline professionals who protected many people from some serious stormy weather. All’s well. And I spent some quality time with my sponsor!
