A Cool StewardessApril 8, 2008
The stewardess had us wave to dad out on the tarmac as he was working to direct the flight out of the gate. His 9 year old son was on-board the plane and was crying as he left. We all waved excitedly and dad hid some of his tears.
During the flight, the stewardess allowed the young man to help her with several of her in-flight chores. I was delighted to see that he did so with gusto and joy. As I gave my plastic cup to him and allowed him to put it in the garbage bag, he beamed with delight. I have no idea what the situation was with his dad and him, but her actions certainly lit up the life of this young man, helping him to put off his pain for awhile.
Kudos to you flying waitress in the sky. You made a difference in his life and showed the rest of us that a little act of kindness goes a long way.
