I used to visit Heathrow Airport in London just for fun as a child. I still like Airports. Austin with its live music and statues is cool. Small enough to be friendly large enough to be interesting.
Today Austin Airport was even better. Because today my beloved niece arrived their on the one daily flight from London. She has the kind of personality that can light up a room.
While I waited expectantly outside the International arrival doors my phone rang: bad news another person I love has cancer.
Somehow this made my niece’s arriving smile even more precious. Cherish those you care about while you have them.
