As I sit in the airport on a flight delay, after bemoaning the fact that I need to sit around for what seems one million hours, I think back...

I've been planning this trip for months now. I'm studying with a lovely British Medium, Mavis Pittilla, who is an older woman teaching out of the Arthur Findley College in Stansted, England. It's quite an odd thing... Whenever I seek a teacher or mentor, invariably they become available to me. Mavis Pittilla is actually coming to the states, and while traveling to England would be great, it's also nice her being closer.

Here's the kicker... This morning as I was leaving the driveway I felt what I call the "heeby-jeebies". I mentally went over my list of must haves and I knew my pre-trip planning was in order. So what was it that made me feel ill at ease? I have to admit that I listen to this sixth sense that comes over me (as you should too!). You know, that gut instinct you get when something just doesn't sit right? So, by the time I was about 5 miles from my home, I began to feel comfortable.

Was I intuiting the 6-hour delay or could it have been that the flight cancellation actually saved all those who would have been on board? As mammals, we all possess that gut instinct, sixth sense or clairsentience. No matter what you call it, I guarantee that it's ALWAYS correct - 100% of the time!

So, as I sit here eating a nice salad at Andiamo's in the airport, I wonder how many lives were saved. How many people will live to see another day with their loved ones on the other end of their journey, and the direction God chooses to send us. Well, it ended up that I spent a total of twelve hours in the airport for nothing. Two flights, innumerable delays, all ended in flight cancellations. How did I spend my time? Well, I now know that the MacNamara terminal of the Detroit Metropolitan Airport is pretty darn cool! My normal routine is to get to the airport, wait for boarding and off I go! Pretty normal, right? However, when was the last time YOU had an excursion through the airport? On my trek through the maze of animals – er, people, I found that there’s a lovely health food deli/store called Plum Market that sells all sorts of yummy goodies. There’s also a great service provider, Be Relax, that offers spa services. I’m talking mani/pedi, partial and full body massages, etc. Seriously, what better way to while away the hours during a flight delay? I simply HAD to get a pedi – how could I resist?

After a long day, I’m returning to the airport tomorrow in the hopes I finally get to my destination. If it’s meant to be, it’ll be. After all, it's up to us to make the most of an unexpected situation or delay, whether we see it as an inconvenience, a reprieve or a much-needed rest. In any of these options we must always know that we're where we're supposed to be, experiencing what we're supposed to experience, and in all things, we're to learn, grow and be grateful. Quite possibly, the delays in your life are God’s way of saying, “Hold Your Horses!”
