A Grateful Heart
It was the last evening of our Christmas vacation. We were leaving the hotel at 5:00am the following day with a flight at 8:30am. Arrival in LAX will be almost 10pm due to multiple layovers. The boys were not thrilled because they had meetings early the next day.
The Christmas gathering with my siblings turned out to be a very blessed reunion, and I had no other words in my heart but a constant dose of "Thanks yous" to our Lord. I did not even say for what I was grateful for because it was literally for everything, even the little annoyances that came with getting together as big group.
At the strike of midnight, my husband got a text from the airline that instead of flying to two different cities with layovers of three to four hours, we were transferred to just one layover and our travel time was reduced by almost five hours! As one of the flight crew said, it's almost like being upgraded to first class!
Our boys were so surprised and happy for the change. They said we were all Touched by Grace!
I did not even notice because all throughout our Christmas vacation, I already felt we were all being Touched by Grace.
