Disappointment to a noble soul is what cold water is to burning metal; 
 it strengthens, tempers, intensifies, but never destroys it

P has been looking forward to the international 41 Conference in Finland for over a year now!

Things have changed with his working situation and suddenly we weren't so sure if this trip was a good idea!

Weighed up the pros and cons and decided to continue with it!

Then the volcano came - flights weren't leaving for European destinations and his trip became the subject of "shall I, shan't I" again?

He was supposed to leave last night.

He didn't go!

Got notification of a HUGE meeting on Wednesday morning.

If he had gone, he would have missed the meeting and jeopordised a very sensitive situation.

He wasn't MEANT to go.

He is very disappointed.

Thats a huge disappointment - but as you said, there must be a reason.
My poor brother went to the UK on business, was due back last Friday and is still stuck there...its hectic the backlog.

Everything happens for a reason. But I would have been very disappointed as well. Like I am every time the bosses decide to go on the international trips themselves and leave me behind even though I do the work.

Oh no :( - it just wasn't meant to be - how disappointing.

I would say that staying home was part of God's plan. When several things like that happen to make one wonder if something is a good idea, it is best to cancel. You'll never know what might have happened had he gone ahead.

Very disappointing for him... but it was obviously meant to be. Glad he's around for the meeting
