With the COVID-19 virus keeping us at home, we have time to reflect back on our lives. We can remember and ponder things that we didn’t think about before, or reflect on the good old days.
One memory I have would be when my family went to Florida. I was nominated to receive a dream trip from an amazing organization called the Dream Factory. We had so much fun going to the Disney parks, SeaWorld, Universal and many other places. It was the first time I flew in an airplane. I was given my first ever surfing lesson. Plus, I made some great friends that I still talk to on Facebook.
But the memory that I want to share today happened at the end of our Florida trip. As my family and I waited in the line to be screened at the airport, my brother realized that he had nothing on him and thought he could go through quicker in another line. So, after being frisked again by a security guy, and having our stuff placed in boxes and X-rayed, we sat on a bench putting ourselves back together, waiting for my brother to appear from the screening area. But we didn’t see him. We looked and looked for him, but no brother.
Panicked, my dad started looking for him, but couldn’t find him anywhere! Had he beat us through the x-ray screening and went to the terminal? I began to worry, myself. Was he lost somewhere in the airport? Without any luck, we finally decided to take the tram to our terminal and hope he would find us. We would have to miss our flight if we could not find him in time. We found the terminal and he was not there. My parents were really getting worried. We were supposed to start boarding the plane in a few minutes. Dad decided to go back to the airport screening spot to look for him again. A few minutes later, I saw my dad and my brother walking toward us. So thankful he was found. I punched his arm. Relief flowed in my heart to see my brother. I had never been so happy to see him. Now we were complete and could start our journey back to Missouri.
At this desperate time of fighting the Coronavirus, many of us feel like we’re trapped inside our houses. But one thing I can do is just sit back and reflect on my life. I remember how God has blessed me when I didn’t do anything for it. I am thankful to have a roof over my head, food in my belly, and people that love me.
This is Life with Kyle and I will talk to you next week.
