Tempting Fate

Word of the Day: Fate - 1. the will or principle or determining cause by which things in general are believed to come to be as they are or events to happen as they do. 2. an inevitable and often adverse outcome, condition, or end. 3. the circumstances that befall someone or something.

Hey guys! I am so nervous about flying out to Rhode Island tomorrow which is funny because I have always been excited about flying. The comfortable plush seats, the long lines of people waiting to get through security, rushing to your next gate and making sure it's the right one so that you won't end up in Bangkok, and the best part....the tiny packages of roasted peanuts:) Flying, to some, is a death sentence, but for me it has always been an adventure.

This year however, I am quite nervous about getting on the plane. I fly out of Ontario and land in Baltimore, Maryland, then switch planes to get to Warwick, Rhode Island. I think once I'm in Baltimore, my nerves will be just fine.

Today, my mom took me to the Walgreen's down the street from us to get some snacks for the plane ride. I told her about how I felt nervous about flying and she told me that as you get older, fear becomes more prominent. "It's like rollercoaster's Cait. You enjoy the thrill of plunging down 255 foot metal man-made hills now, but as you get older, that will all change."

It's amazing how as you grow up, reality seems to smack you in the face. As a little girl flying on a plane, I used to pretend that I was Super Girl. I would have a purple cape and I would pretend to be flying through the air, carrying the plane to ensure the safety of the other passengers. It was exciting, looking out the window. I remember how I would compare the world below me with doll house pieces. Everything seemed small enough to fit in a doll house; the cars, the houses, the swimming pools, and the roads.

But now, it is no longer exciting. Its a hassel to get through security, I mean you have to take off your flip flops for crying out loud. As if I'm carrying a gun in the sole of my flip flop, oh no! :)

I'm going to try and find my inner child again in that airport. I think going away for a few days will be good for me. To get away from my everyday normal life, and experience something new for a change.

I'm not sure if I will be able to blog when I'm over there. My stepmother works at home through the computer and I will not be taking my laptop with me. However, I am taking a composition notebook with me and plan to write about what I did that day. I will add those journal entries to my blog when I get back if I don't get a chance to get online:)

Wish me luck tomorrow and please pray for a safe flight to and from Rhode Island. I would really appreciate your prayers as I am nervous about tomorrow. Hope you all are having a wondeful summer and I will be back soon!

Yours Truly,



  1. May you rest in God's presence as He travels with you back and forth. God bless you and keep you.

  2. Cait,

    We will be praying for you from the time we leave in the car this morning until we bring you home. We pray for you daily that God will strengthen you and watch over you. You simply need to just turn to Him, when life becomes a bit too overwhelming. Cast your burdens on Him and He will give you a peace that passes ALL understanding.

    We'll miss you and love you so much. Have a wonderful vacation!

    Love and Hugs ~ Mom
