Roopa finally found the time to pack her bags. Good that she took an extra day off before traveling.
She referred to her checklist on the phone and realized everything is taken care off, barring a few essentials. So, she picked her car keys, headed out quickly, as she wanted to be back before her kids came back from school. It was their last day at school , before the Christmas holidays.
"Roopa, it's 10 a.m. already. We better leave soon." Roopa's husband called out as he loaded the luggages into the car.
Roopa , held her younger one by the hand and began walking down the stairs. She was on a call with her mum and the elevator took forever to come.
They reached the airport, ten minutes before time. " You always rush me. I knew we had time". Roopa teased her hubby.
" I just didn't want you to miss the flight" Her hubby replied and winked at her.
Roopa's elder one brought a trolley and helped Daddy with the luggages.
While waiting at the Airport terminal in the queue for security check, Roopa turned to catch a glimpse of her kids and hubby. They were still there, standing. The little one was sucking on to her lollipop while the elder one was chatting merrily with her Daddy.
They spotted their Mamma and all three of them waved at her and blew flying kisses.
Roopa proceeded, thanking her lucky stars for blessing her with such an understanding family.
While waiting at the airport and editing the pictures that she clicked with her kids and hubby the previous week, her heart filled with gratitude.
Her hubby respected her choice to travel solo while he agreed to take the kids to his native to spend the holidays. Weeks prior to her departure , Roopa began preparing the kids that 'Mamma would be gone for ten days but Daddy would be there to take care of them'.
Gradually, both the kids accepted and infact, joined in the excitement of Roopa's impending trip. They researched well and gave their Mum a list of things they wanted from Japan.
"Boarding now. Thanks for making sure I didn't miss the flight. You are awesome! xoxo" Roopa WhatsApped her hubby, before putting her phone on the flight mode.
