Then when we went to Wal Mart the next morning to buy clothes and travel size face wash/deodorant (our bag was still in Detroit…), it was as if every customer and employee went out of their way to smile and make me feel welcome. An elderly man even winked at me (not in a creepy way, either). Every where we went, people held doors open for me, waved and extended such a spirit of hospitality and grace.
edit// i typed this thousands of feet in the air on our second to last airplane to get home this weekend. after writing this, our last flight was cancelled and we ended up driving home from Cleveland (5 hours) to arrive home at 4 am. it's as if i typed this without knowing that i would really need a peaceful perspective just a few minutes later... SO thankful to be home. and not dealing anymore with United Airlines for quite some time... :)
