Family Email on Flight Changes

Friends and family,

Thanks for all the help this week.  Sorry for  cross-communication this morning.  (Larry thought she was still flying into Louisville and was preparing family for her there, bless his heart.  Those ribs sure sounded good Aunt, J!  Can you freeze those babies?  Now I’m hungry for ribs.)

In any case, she did call here at 3AM and asked for someone to pick her up in Evansville at 5PM…that’s the last I’ve heard. I’m checking web sites to confirm/find flight numbers. We don’t have those.  I asked her supervisor, but we are 12 hours off and I think I missed her shift. I can’t call Larry, he can only call out on his calling card.

The Hub answered the phone this AM, we weren’t expecting the call…caught us off guard.  We were still on target for Thursday. I didn’t sleep the rest of the night and caught a nap this AM to get myself caught up from the crampy-leg- heart-jitter thing that happens when you don’t get your full sleep–was sleepless wondering how to get her picked up today (I have a sick one and knew I’d be tied at home).  I’m rested and great now, but in the meantime, ya’ll were getting other info! 

Oh well, we can only do our best.

We are now starting  making her a welcome home banner to put up on her garage while I compute (paint everywhere)!

NEEDS:  can someone call Aunt Dot and let me know if you did?  I feel sure most of the rest are in the grapevine loop.  Aunt M reads here and Aunt K is helping out (THANK YOU), let me know if Aunt C is covered, or others without email–trickle that down please.  Ya’ll do your phone thing. 

Did I mention four containers of open paint in the kitchen?  Yeah.

Let me stop here and try to get the flight to get to my brother. I’ll update this post at the top with what I find.

I also just  emailed with these details for family on that list.  (I know everyone doesn’t have email, but that helps keep information clear for repeat.  I hope that helps–sorry that it puts some on the tail end of calls each time unless Mom calls, but the best I can do for now.)

Love and many, many thanks to you all for your prayers and concern and help and love.

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)

"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not come. We have only today. Let us begin." ~Mother Teresa




A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles. --Washington Irving




When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet Beecher Stowe
