We all have a date in time which causes us to pause, reflect and remember.
March 21 is that day I find myself both happy and sad. I think of all the joys I experienced as I started my life changing career as a flight attendant but I’m also reminded of the grief and emotional sadness of my dad’s passing.
43 years ago I earned my golden wings as a flight attendant with United Airlines and although it’s cliche, I still enjoy traveling and meeting people.
Although I’m retired, every flight attendant knows once those wings go on, they never come off and as I reflect on a lifetime of camaraderie and fellowship, a huge smile surfaces.😀
22 years ago at the age of 73, my dad passed suddenly while on a business trip. His sense of humor, charismatic personality and famous “are you happy today” phrase brings on a huge smile as I recall fond memories ❤️
I created this video a few years after his passing as a remembrance. https://vimeo.com/122885024
