T minus 5 hours

In five hours, I will be on a plane, probably just about to take off.

I am, as I usually am when I fly, terrified. My stomach is in knots and I feel sick.

It doesn't matter what anyone says to me, I can't stop the overwhelming anxiety. It's awful. Some say, "Just take a Gravol and you'll sleep all the way there!" I won't. Gravol doesn't stand a chance against my nerves. I've never slept on a plane...not for more than a few minutes anyway.

I will notice every little sound, every little bump and I will panic with each one. I will spend the entire time trying to keep myself from absolutely losing it. It will be hell.

But, when I finally do get to England, it will be wonderful. I plan to read, drink, eat, shop, read, drink, eat, shop and repeat several times. I even brought a large, empty duffle bag that I have put in my suitcase for my purchases. LOL. I am bringing my laptop, but not so that I can surf the net...I hope to only use it to download photos from my camera so I don't run out of space on my memory card. Yeah right...if I find an internet connection, I am THERE baby!

Anyway, please say a little prayer for me...I always feel better knowing that someone is thinking good thoughts for me.

Thanks and "see" you in ten days! Pin It

Praying for you - for safe travel and beautiful memories.

Pop a couple of Ativan and you'll be O-U-T.

Miss ya...

Dawn...I wanted to send you this prayer that my mother-in-law gave me when we flew to China. I said it for 14 hours straight.
Blessed Mother,
Keep me safe in the mantle of your maternal protection. Send the angels to form an invisible wall of protection around me. Let me arrive safely in England and safely back home again.
Jesus, you said to put you in remembrance of your word and your word says, "Fear not for I am with you. Do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my victorious right hand."

Have a great vacation!
