One mom is celebrating the season of giving by praising three compassionate strangers who came to her rescue in a bustling airport.
31-year-old Becca Kinsey had her hands full when she was preparing for her flight back to Texas. Since her husband had been unable to get time off from work, she had been returning home from taking her sons, 2-year-old Wyatt and 5-year-old James, to Disney World all by herself.
Though Kinsey said that the youngsters are usually very well-behaved, they were exhausted from fun and travel – and their stress finally came to a tee while they were at the airport.
“We were standing in line in security, on the verge of tears because Wyatt was screaming and James was exhausted,” Kinsey wrote in a Facebook post. “Out of the blue, one mom stops the line for security and said, ‘Here, jump in front of me! I know how it is!’ Wyatt fell asleep and I was trying to carry everyone’s carry-on when another mom jumps out of her place in line and said, ‘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.”
True to their word, the second woman helped the little family through security before grabbing Kinsey’s luggage and escorting them all the way to their gate.
To top it all off, Kinsey was sitting at the back of the plane when Wyatt started to scream once more – and a third woman stepped in to offer her assistance.
“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 [my husband], hugs me and says ‘Merry Christmas!!’”
Kinsey was so overwhelmed by the women’s kindness, she posted a photo of the third woman to Facebook, asking her social media followers to donate to charity as a means of paying it forward.
