I have begun my second camino and I am grateful.
I was supposed to leave on my trip on Sunday and was unable to fly because my covid test results came after the 48 hour deadline. I ended up getting 2 covid tests and both are negative. I’m so grateful.
My flight to Washington DC was delayed 2 days in a row which meant that I wouldn’t make my connection to London. I got to spend extra time with my family especially a big cuddle time with our newest grandchild, Teddy. I’m so grateful.
I decided to fly to DC even though I would miss my connection. It’s taking an extra day but I got to spend last night in a very nice hotel. I am grateful.
I arrived at midnight and none of our flight’s baggage was coming up on the assigned carousel. I spent an hour trying to find my bag. Finally I saw my bag circling on a carousel that was supposed to have luggage from flights from Nashville and Charlotte. I have my suitcase. I am grateful.
I found a table in a sunny spot to have my breakfast. I am grateful.
I have a reservation on the shuttle to go to the airport at 2:00 pm and the hotel has told me I can stay in my room until 1:00 pm. It’s a nice room with a pretty view. I am grateful.
Today I’m hopeful that I will fly to England to visit a friend that I met on the camino two years ago. I’ll arrive 4 days late, but I will get to see her. I am grateful.
