My flight leaves at 12:45 this afternoon. Thank God Southwest has a direct flight from Albany to Las Vegas--flying without a layover makes such a big difference.
Speaking of thanking God, surely you've heard about the Australian couple whose premature baby miraculously came back to life. Is that the most amazing story you've ever heard or what? You have to wonder if it's wise to wisk even healthy babies away immediately after birth; obviously there's tremendous power in skin-to-skin contact.
My mind is going crazy thinking about all the other implications. I think of old people who maybe haven't had a hug in months. Or single people who don't have a swinging social life. If you do nothing else today, give someone a hug!
I'm also thankful that no one got seriously hurt in that kick-ass earthquake in New Zealand. I haven't heard from B.H. in a few weeks, but he's on the north island anyway, so I'm sure he's safe.
Well, you be safe, too, this holiday weekend. It's hard to believe the summer is over. I see some leaves starting to turn here and there, but once I get to Vegas, it will be summer all over again. And lots of hugs. Can't wait.
