That is an awesome gift, indeed. Nicely written.

Great opening - the 2nd paragraph "shows" so much about the MC without "telling" us. So THAT'S how you do it! :)

Beautifully written from the opening paragraph to the fabulous last line.

Sensational writing.
What really impressed me was the wonderful use of colour to set the scene perfectly and so transport me inside that aircraft.

I loved the way you expressed the MC. We do get so wrapped up in what we see during the season that we forget that there is pain in someone. They have questions unanswered. What a wonderful story!
