Last week our District Superintendent and I were flying back from Montreal and were on our way to our gate to catch our plane.
The escalator wasn’t working and so we headed for the elevator. It was a small elevator and the lady getting on had a stroller and a suitcase and said there wasn’t room for us and told us there was another escalator just around the corner. And sure enough, there was. So Peter and I caught the escalator down one flight and walked through the sliding doors, right into baggage claim. We immediately turned around and walked back through the door only to be stopped by the security guard who had watched us walk through the doors 2 seconds earlier.
We were told that we would have to go through the other exit, back through the airport, including security to catch our plane that was boarding in 5 minutes.
We made our flight, because it was delayed, and we learned two life lessons. Pay attention to where you’re going and make sure those who give you direction know where you want to go.
Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
