LM, Episode 1141, 2/1/23 (Remaster LM, Episode 103, 2/26/20), Minding My Own Business
I have a routine when I fly. I sit on the right side of the plane in the first few rows against the window. I only talk to people when they talk with me because I write. I write with a purple pen and I often see tray tables on Southwest planes with purple ink on them, meaning I have sat there before.
On an early morning flight to Indianapolis a woman sits down next to me, gets settled, looks over at my writing and asks, “What are you doing.”
I know you’ll find this hard to believe, but when I travel, I get sarcastic. I answer, “Minding my own business,” which makes us both laugh.
My friend, Beth McCombs, posted on facebook she was sitting next to a woman on a plane who tells her she doesn’t fly often, but she and her husband were going on a trip to celebrate his recovering from a serious illness that forced him to learn to talk and walk all over again.
Beth stated, “Everyone has a story. It’s beautiful how some of these stories can leave little imprints on our lives. Inspiration is everywhere, if we open our hearts to it.” Thank you, Beth. Today I hope your heart will be open to the inspiration the world is offering you and always remember laughter matters.
