Gratitude

auckkland airport

Our girls arrived safely at Auckland airport on their Malaysian Airlines flight from Kuala Lumpur. When we dropped them at KLIA, the news of the downed flight MH17 was already on the front pages of all the papers. We spent an anxious day thinking about both our children on one vulnerable little plane, longing for the text message to tell us they had arrived in Auckland. We were lucky, we got that message. But it made us think of all those whose loved ones will never return and the gross injustice of all those innocent people being blown out of the sky. Life is short, life is precious and has never seemed more so than today.

    So true
    So true
    Absolutely abhorrent act

    We waved goodbye to our son last night
    He flew to hong kong to complete his contract in shenzhen
    So glad to get an email from him that he has safely arrived back in his apartment

    Hi Jane – I was thinking of you on Friday and knew that you would be understandably anxious all day. So glad that they are back safely. Antonia flew over Russia when she flew back from Denmark earlier this year. She is off to Malta in 4 weeks and will fly from Frankfurt to Bangkok on the way back – I am nervous already!!!
