The Blue Angels…
As most who follow my blog or facebook knows, not so long ago at the small airport of Vero Beach was an air show. The guest stars were the Blue Angels.
I had never seen them before (or any like them). I live close enough that many of them flew right over where I live. I was thrilled no end! For reasons, I assume are from my depression and anxieties, I cried. But then, something happened to me that hasn’t happened in well over a year… I looked forward to “tomorrow” to see them again!
The simple fact that for 4 days I looked forward to looking up in the sky and to feel the rumble and hear the sounds of their jets, led me to write them a letter after they had gone. I wanted them to know that besides being “fancy jets” and besides doing shows to entice young men to join the service, that they made a very old lady smile and “look forward” to the next day.
It may not mean a lot to these young men, but it meant a lot to me and so I wrote them and told them so..
Today as I went out to check my mail this large mailing envelope leaned against the wall of my door… when I opened the envelope..I cried…again! geez! The Blue Angels had done it again.. Needless to say, I wish they were here ! I still can’t believe that someone in their office took the time to send this old lady such a gift… I can never thank them enough. Never. And I hope some day I get to see them again!
