Mom Thanks an Airline Passenger for Her Kindness

Something amazing happened to me today and I will never be able to express how grateful I am for it.

If anyone has ever traveled with an infant you know how stressful it can be.

Today, I was reminded that there truly are absolutely AMAZING individuals in this world even if they are complete strangers to you.

I have been planning this trip to surprise Nick Garvison for quite some time and have been most stressed about flying alone with Rylee and all of our stuff to lug around with no help.

As soon as we got on the plane at 5:30 AM it was very quiet and it was a full flight. I noticed that the 2 seats next to me were taken and this couple looked very annoyed and I could tell by their body language sitting right next to me that they weren’t thrilled about sitting next to Rylee.

Of course I’m already stressing and then Rylee started crying when we were just getting ready to taxi. I decided to ask the other flight attendant if I could move up 2 rows where there were 2 empty seats next to each other and I’d have more room to do stuff.

She said yes and next thing I know I was sitting next to this amazing woman! I’m not sure if she could tell how stressed and upset I looked or what, but she turned our day completely around.

Rylee wouldn’t stop crying no matter what I would try and do….so she had asked if I didn’t mind if she tried and of course I let her.

As soon as she had her, Rylee was looking out the window and stopped crying. When we got in the air she fell right asleep and slept in her lap the whole flight until we got to our gate. She kept saying it wasn’t a problem at all and it was actually a comforting feeling for her.

She even carried her off the plane and held her so I could get the stroller and carseat put back together so I wasn’t struggling to try and do it all alone.

Nyfesha Miller, you will never understand how happy this act of kindness has made my family. You could’ve just rolled your eyes and been irritated like everyone else, but you took her and held her the entire flight and let me get some rest and peace of mind.

It brought tears to my eyes while I sat there and watched you and Rylee sleeping next to me. I just couldn’t believe how that ended up working out and how caring you were to us.

Thank you SO much!! God bless you!!

  2. I used to work for an airline myself… I know how Rebekka was feeling, I saw this scene many many times! Usually I did a lovely trick (when there was space), I just upgraded the mother and her baby. Other times, I cut off some time (I was a senior purser in charge) from the first and business class to help families with infants… sometimes I experienced lovely people alike Nyfesha… in our world there is always someone ready to help…
    Later on when I quit the aviation and when myself I had children and I was traveling for pleasure, I was rewarded receiving just the same attention from the flight attendants of other airlines!


  3. There is no shortage of kind beautiful people on the world but we are busy highlighting the shitty ones always. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful experience. People should share stories like these much more than depressing and crime filled, that will make the world a lot better to live and enjoy !! Kudoz to her !!
