Getting a little vulnerable here…I’ve felt this way many times on the field. Like I’m just standing out here by myself, holding my letter, even when it makes no. sense. at. all. Parenting my little ones can be lonely. Pilots get more glory than wives who are home arguing with the contractors. Nobody’s going to put what I do in the organization’s calendar, right? That would be…boring.
Don’t let it get to you, mamas. Hold your letter up high today. You’re one. It is ok to be just one; what you give matters. And if it’s not pushing the metaphor too far, don’t feel like you have to pick up the dropped letters. Be specific and intentional about your calling. It’s ok to say no to the L, O and E.
Love you, mamas. You’ve got this.
