Yeah, that is right.  Our flight departing from Charlotte to Newark was two hours delayed with another forty minutes spent waiting on the runway.  The Continental people on the ground were convinced that we would make our connection, or at least, they were trying to convince us that we would make the connection.

We land in Newark at around 9:22.  Our flight departs at 9:30 for Paris.  We run, high tail our booties from one end of the concourse to the farthest possible connecting end, just to see the door shut on our flight.  We weren't alone.  Because of weather delays for the Newark airport, several others were left in the same predicament as us.  

I cried.  I called my dad.  Phil handled the arrangements for our flights out today.

Thank heaven for family.  We have a cousin here in Jersey CIty who let us stay the night, and now, we will see some of Manhattan before departing for Geneva.

Sorry your plane was delayed. Dad and I were up and prayed all night for you and our dear Philip. However, I have peace now and I am confident that the rest of your trip will be very enjoyable.

How I wish I could go back to Manhattan. It was a very exciting, romantic and meaninful trip during my travels. When your dad kissed me spontianously on top of the Empire State Building my heart raced with great pleasure. I cherish that moment and can remember it as if it were yesterday.

I'm looking for your return to the States so that you and tell me about your visit with your cousins in Belgium as well as in Manhattan.

Love you,
