I'm in Chicago

I flew last night through turbulence~I did not cry once. I know why-people were praying for me. I was prayed up !God is good all the time ! Now, My best friend Barbie and her two sisters and I are going to head out to see what we can see, eat what we can eat and have a good day! The only thing that would make it better is if my JUJU was here with us! We are going to be flying home on her birthday and I wish she could have come!
Have you ever realized that God is wonderful- I'm here to say He is ~ WE bought our plane tickets way back at the first of the year when fares were really low-on sale!! We got them for the month of May because it would be warmer and no snow!! Now it's come to pass that it was our appointed time to be here, because Nikki-Barbie's sister could really use some encouragement at this time. They are having some health issues in the family -those of us who have the peace of who holds all our days and problems try not to fall apart during times like these-that's my prayer now -we can help Nikki and lift her up.And we do know how to have a good time and laugh and we will definitely spend some quality time with her.I will definitely post some pictures later!!
I will leave you with this quick little tidbit to laugh at...
when I went throughthe security checkpoint-I set off the alarm.If you know me- at all times I have 5 silver bracelets I never take off-one will have to be cut off. Well the security lady said take off all your jewelry so I took of earrings, bracelets-except for the one that has to be cut off- I still set it off . So she makes me step in a clear booth and wait, then she takes me to another clear room which is bigger and says she will have to search me and frisk me... so she starts with the wand and rubs it everywhere - would you believe the ridgets on my jeans pocket and My LARGE underwire of my bra was the culprit-then I get the happy ,happy joy , joy of the pat down.She said I'm sorry I have to do this then she puts her gloved hands in between my BOSOMS- and then feels all around my bazoombas!Then she feels all over where I had clothes covering, even up my thighs. I laughed the whole time and started to say whoo now I need a cigarette-Just kidding -it was the most action I've seen lately!!!
See I told ya I can have me some fun anywhere!!!
I'll be back!
I thank God for our safe trip and the chance to spend this time with Barbie and her sistas!!
Be blessed!

That is too funny!!! OMG..I don't know if I would have handled it as well as you did. You are in Chicago...I love to visit there, we used to live outside Chicago, actually I was born and raised in Illinois for the first 28 years of my life. Have a fabulous time.

Hey sweet friend. I have missed you so! It just ain't fun flying into the "Windy City." I probably did cry when I flew there! Have fun, girl!

My friend,
Today I really needed a laugh and some encouragement… I knew I could count on you for both!
Love you!
