Becca is deeply grateful for the kindness shown to her by these three separate women as she recalls her trip to Disney world. The help at airport by three strangers made her trip a relaxed and memorable. Becca was at the airport with her two sons, Wyatt, 5, and James, 2. They had just finished off their small trip at Disney world.
After several days of adventure and fun, Becca and her sons wanted was to reach home. Becca was having hard time travelling with kids without her husband. She was finding it difficult to managing things at airport together with taking care of the little boys.
Things became more difficult for Becca when unexpectedly she misplaced her license. Somehow she managed to search it to reach the airport but was sent to the wrong side. With only a little time left before their flight departed, Becca remembers that she was literally in tears in the security check queue. To her surprise a kind woman allowed her to go ahead of her. Becca shared “We were standing in line in security, on the verge of tears because Wyatt was crying and James was exhausted. Out of the blue, one mom stops the line for security and says “here, jump in front of me! I know how it is!”
Becca was amazed with the lady’s kindness which saved her a lot of time . As she was struggling with kids and travel bags, to her surprise another kind mother, offered her help. This warmhearted mother, in the other security check line was kind enough to take the sleeping Wyatt, bags and helped Becca through security and walked them till the gate. Becca said “Wyatt fell asleep and I was trying to carry everyone’s carry-on when another mom jumps out of her place in line and says, “Hand me everything, I’ve got it.” When I said thank you to both of them, they said, “Don’t you worry, we’re going to make sure you get on that flight.” The second woman takes everything and helps me get it through security and, on top of all that, she grabs all of it and walks us to the gate to make sure we get on the flight.”
Becca felt more appreciative as the second lady had the different flight to be boarded on from different area; still she dropped Becca and kids safely through the door. She thought to herself “I would not have made that flight without those two women.” Becca boarded her flight on time with the help of two wonderful women. As the flight began to take off, Wyatt woke up and began crying. Becca did not want other passengers to get disturbed because of Wyatt and wanted to put him back to sleep. She was embarrassed and uncomfortable about Wyatt being noisy and cranky.
Becca says “To top it all off, Wyatt starts to scream at take off before he finally falls back to sleep… I was embarrassed through this whole ordeal. I think when you’re traveling with kids; people see you and think, ‘Oh god, they are on my flight.’ And when my kid started crying, I was so worried.” This is when another lady comes to Becca’s rescue. The lady offered to carry Wyatt in her arms for the rest of the flight. She even walked him all through the baggage before handing the little one to Becca’s husband at arrivals. Becca recalls and said “After about 45 min, this angel comes to the back and says, “you look like you need a break” and holds Wyatt for the rest of the flight AND walks him all the way to baggage claim, hands him to Blake [hugs me and says, ‘Merry Christmas!!’”
Becca felt deeply appreciative of kindness of three women she decided to share their exemplary gestures with everyone. She posted the kindness of the three women on social media. Impressed with the three admirable ladies, Becca too was inspired to work for a cause.
She has started a charity named ‘Kidd’s Kids’. Becca believes we can all help make someone’s day a little brighter; she encourages people to make a small donation for a good cause. The funds raised would be used to provide 5 days Disney trips to ail-ing children. Becca ends her post saying: even small kind gestures make a lot of difference to the one in need. “You don’t need to do something big and grand to make a difference, sometimes you can just hold the door open,” she says. Becca’s post was shared over 130,000 times.
