A Wing and a Prayer

Dear God,

I pray for a safe and speedy passage to Canada. Safe ... as in arriving in the same number of pieces that I was boxed up in and speedy ... as in arriving on the same plane as my rider.

I understand that the airport gorillas oftentimes have a thankless job, but I seek their mercy as they load/unload me onto the plane. Please show them the righteous path. Let them know that my rider is appreciative of them working all hours and in all types of conditions to ensure their luggage (and me) is reunited with them upon their arrival.

And if I do have the misfortune of falling off the airplane onto the tarmac, I pray that #1 I am noticed and #2 that my layer of foam padding, two layers of bubble wrap and two blankets offer me a protective cocoon.

If I am given protection under your angels' wings, I will do my best to be strong for my rider and propel her to victory.

Amen

-- Pinky
