No Luggage 🧳

So I wanted to share this story because this may help a friend or mom. My friends and I have been friends for many years (more like 15 plus years) and we plan trips as often as we can to stay connected outside of our group texts, FaceTime calls and other communication techniques that we indulge in.

As you can see we come from different ethnicities, cultures, backgrounds, but we have pure hearts and have genuine love for each other.

Here is where the story actually begins. So our flights into the New Orleans airport were canceled by the airlines on a Saturday morning due to the electricity being out in the New Orleans airport. So because we was so eager to make our girls trip happen, we started phone calls and texts to figure out how we was going to make this 3-4 day girls trip happen.

The backstory is that we are all flying from different states: Maryland, Colorado and Texas

Because the airline canceled our flights, we was able to get our flights transferred to Birmingham. Now I arrived in Birmingham first in which I rented a car so that we could make a 5 hour drive/road trip to New Orleans to ensure that our girls trip was in full effect.

Back up for a moment, the airport looses my luggage 🧳

This is my face sitting in the rental car with no luggage and with only one outfit (the one I have on) thinking what am I going to do with no luggage and no hair products with all this humidity. Honestly this has never happened to me before.

So I must have called the airport and lost luggage number 10-15 times but my luggage was not located. This was playing in the back of my mind but I had to put on my game face on and be present in the moment (Mindfulness) so that I could enjoy my friends.

Hanging with my friends; we shared laughter, humor, great food, wine, hugs, feelings, and we even thought our rented house was haunted 🤷🏼‍♀️.

During our girls trip, I ended having to purchase the basic necessities: deodorant, toothbrush, undies, t-shirts, and pants because my luggage 🧳 was lost. My friends were very supportive and patient being that I had to replay my pants 👖 (just keeping it real) they even allowed me to borrow items so that I could stay clean and tidy (what more could a girl who had no luggage 🧳 ask for).

Then the trip comes to an end and it’s time to say our goodbyes and until next times. I still did not have luggage 🧳. Upon my return home 🏠, I receive a phone ☎️ call from the airline indicating they have located my luggage 🧳. The moral of the story is to enjoy the moments- It’s not about clothes and shoes and your appearance. It’s really about Relationships and Cherishing important genuine Friendships and Relationships.

So if you have not told a loved one, sister girl, brother, mother, or whomever how much you appreciate them, I encourage you to do so. I”m out ✌🏻in my jeans that I wore the whole trip so what 🤷🏼‍♀️.
