The day we got to go through the terminal and walk onto a stationary plane, I knew would be a huge test for me personally.

I prayed the night before that I would be calm and welcome the experience and that was precisely how I felt.

The scent on the plane brought back childhood memories and the tears welled of the fondness and instant feeling of why I loved flying, I was so very happy to walk around the plane and even get a peek in the Captains seat!

Going up to the airport tower was another moment where I was completely embraced in the experience of feeling the honor of being able to do such.

Happy childhood memories revived
