after a cancelled flight, some seriously tense discussions with my wife and the fine folks at Delta Airlines, I managed to gey my wife and kids on a
flight back home yesterday.
I got to the airport on time, parked the car, waited on all the lines so I could get security clearance to enter the airport and then sat there
waiting for the plane to actually unload the passengers. The delta terminal has this glassed in area where the passengers come thru and I saw my
daughter and then my son and I sat there smiling at them until they saw me. My daughter let out a scream that resulted in two cops running over. She
jumped up into my arms and started kissing me and telling me minute of the flight. My son started jumping up and down shouting "dada" over and over
and then he stopped and walked over to me. I knelt down so that we were face to face and his eyes turned quizzical and he looked at me and said, in a
questioning tone "dada?" I said yes JB, and he smiled the biggest smile I have ever seen hugged me, kissed me and poked me in the eye.
The kids both passed out in the car so I didn't get much face time with them but my daughter crawled into my bed while I was showering this morning
and I came out of the shower and was quietly getting dressed, so as to not wake my wife or my little girl and I heard a whispering voice say "daddy,
I made room for you"
I had no choice but to climb back into bed and as I did she turned to face me and said "I love you daddy. I missed you every day except for today
cause now you're here"
