December 27... Bienvenidos Abigail Bennet!

Tonight, Ashley, Ethan, and I joined the Abby Bennet support group to welcome her home from her long stay in Ecuador... seven months!
It was quite the adventure... while waiting for her delayed flight, we hopped on wheelchairs.
I know it seems pretty impossible, but in all my 20 years of being alive, I have never been on one long enough to operate one. I got on and was completely confused at how to turn! It took me quite a while to get the hang of it, and when I did...
"Excuse me. The wheelchairs are for those with special needs. Put them back."
Ooops....

That put a damper on our wait, until we saw that lovely girl come flaoting down the escalators... we all screamed in joyous unison, and I will admit, I got a bit teary-eyed when I went to hug her. I love Abby Bennet, and welcoming her back home at the airport has got to be one of the most heart-touching new things I've done this year.
