My sister gets her wings

That’s her, glowing in the middle

Over the past month or so, I’ve talked to my sister on the phone more than I have in ages. She’s been cramming on her studies to do something she’s only dreamed about: becoming a flight attendant.

On each call she was more and more excited, passing each test and getting closer to the goal. All her hard work paid off, and today it became official—she got pinned with her wings.

My mom and I came out to clap and beam.

We weren’t just schmoozing to get on the short list for flight discounts.
