Day 271: Those who work on Christmas

This is the first Christmas we have not been at home. So instead of lounging by the tree amid piles of mangled wrapping and thoughtful oddities smelling the holiday meal cooking in the oven,we find ourselves at sea in the Syracuse airport. The airport is virtually empty save for those kind souls who have agreed to work today. What a service these individuals perform to forgoe their own comfort at home to serve those of us in transit today. The cheerful lady wearing a Santa hat at the pizza counter here in Terminal 2 smiles as she serves us a deep dish slice. This unorthodox adventure reminds me of the miracle of those who serve during holidays. Deep bows of thanks to those, cheery or not, who serve on Christmas. I hope A special angel watches over them.
