First Flight

Our daughter was terribly anxious the first time she flew in a plane. "What if the plane falls down?" she asked as we boarded. "What's that sound?" she questioned as the engines revved. During take-off she squeezed my hand till her knuckles turned white. However, once we were above the clouds, she released her grip and announced, "It's okay now. I'm not afraid. We're above the clouds ... and next to heaven."
