Hi all,

Having a bit of a problem. I need to book my flight to Houston. Everytime I check out the available flights and pick them out, I get scared to press the buy this ticket button. I know that this is so silly, but I still can't bring myself to do it. I have already reserved the hotel room, but the flight is just so hard to commit to. The longer I wait, the fewer choices I will have. I guess I am just scared.

peaceful healing
Lisha

Lisha,

You're not being silly. It's totally understandable. Once you hit the "purchase" button, you are committed to the trip, no looking back. It's not as if you are booking airfare for a vacation.....it's for medical care but, more importantly, it commits you to all of the Unknown that comes along with it. This type of unknown can not be compared to the surprise type of fun that a vacation brings, that's for sure! But the good news is, you've got all of us going along for the ride, no matter where you're going Sweetie!

Prayers & hugs,
Kellie

Hi Kellie,

Thanks for the support. I think you described what I am feeling much better than I could put into words. Knowing that you will be along for the ride, helps so very much.
The unknown is a scary place to go to.
Hopefully, it won't be long before I am able to book a real fun vacation. I sure could use one.
Thanks for your kindness and your support...

Dear Lisha,

Is it the unknown of what's ahead? Yes, I am sitting her thinking of your problem. It
could happen to me, the fear that is. I see no harm in waiting one day until you are
more comfortable. It is not silly.

Let us know when you purchase the ticket. Love Maggie

Lisha,
I think the problem may be that when you press the button to book the flight that you will then know the schedule is complete. The flight being the last link in the chain that takes you from the first step to last step. Go ahead and press the button,we will be on the whole trip with you. John(FNHL-1-4A-5/10)

Hi Lisha,
I hope by now you have booked your flight and at ease with your decision. Not knowing whats ahead of you is scary, but it's time to get some answers. Is Keith going to be able to go with you? I wouldn't want you to go alone. We leave for vacation in the morning, but I will have my laptop with me and plan to check in each day. I wish you could come to the cottage with us and just kick back and relax...if anyone needs a good vacation, it is definetely you! Take care sweetie, and let us know if you have your travel plans all in order. My prayers and good thoughts are always with you. Love...Sue

Hi Lisha,
The unknown is so darn scary. I hope you are going and then when they tell you the next step I think it won't be as frightening. I am praying for you as I do the people on this sight. Sometimes when my husband and I say the dinner grace I go on saying take care of Lisha, Sue, Maggie, Donna, Fran, Vinny, Beth and so on. My husband doesn't look at this sight but he is praying too. Take care Lisha. You have so many people loving you here.
