I take way too much for granted


Just talked to a co-worker, one of our catering stewards, about her holiday. She and her husband returned home to Guatemala for the first time in 19 years. Their work visas would not allow them to travel back and forth, but they just received new documents that allow them to leave and return.

When I asked her about her holiday, her eyes lit up.  A trip home to see friends and family after two tough decades in Guatemala.  I can’t even imagine.

It made me realize how much I take the simple things for granted.
