Whenever I travel, I pray for protection and blessings over the whole experience. For this trip, I felt that I should also pray for patience, grace and good attitudes toward any difficulties of travel. There is always something: flight delays, last minute changes of gates at the airport, long lines, misplaced luggage. I try to be patient, but this time I felt I should pray for help in keeping up a good spirit. I won't say that I was perfect, but I think I did a bit better. Certainly the long flights and connections gave me opportunities to practice a positive attitude.
And the reward was: Scotland! A wonderful country.
