Things change quickly. My mind is in turmoil, yet I feel at peace. A good friend convinced me to act sooner rather than later. Today I visited Vancouver Airport and told the Delta people about my problem. The young lady booked me on a flight leaving on Monday May 1 and arriving in Sydney Wednesday May 3. She persuaded her boss to waive the $300+ re booking fee and even arranged for me to have a window seat and hopefully a vacant seat beside me. Stefanie (S) hopes to join me in a few weeks. One of my cousins has offered to pick me up from Sydney Airport and give me a bed for the night. After that I will stay with my sister for a while. I am looking forward to seeing my family and friends. The universe is on my side. I feel so blessed!!
