Well, things didn’t go exactly according to plan but our daughter is up in the air now and heading to London! She had a flight booked yesterday and was supposed to be there already but bad weather in Chicago delayed her flight out of OKC for so long that she couldn’t make her connection to London. The airlines had to rebook her for today instead. The real kicker though was when we discovered this morning that the flight to London also ended up getting delayed quite a bit so if she’d gone on to Chicago she actually would have made it. 🙁 Oh well. Better safe than sorry right?
It’s the weirdest feeling to be so completely brokenhearted that she’s gone but so incredibly excited for what awaits her. This has been a really rough day so far but I’m so thankful that she has an awesome husband anxiously awaiting her arrival across the pond with a great life to give her. I can’t even tell you how proud I am of her and all that she’s done in her short 23 years of life. She’s traveled the world already and is truly living life and that makes me incredibly happy. As much as I want her here right by me, I wouldn’t dream of holding her back from all the adventures that await her out there. It sure makes me thankful I’ve got Tyler here still though! hahaha! Hopefully he’ll stay by my side awhile longer. 😉
