The First Week of the New Year

On Christmas Day, I flew from Orlando to Richmond with a stop in Charlotte. While deboarding in Charlotte, I saw a frazzled mother with a very young baby and a clearly "distressed" stroller. I asked her if I could help her figure out the stroller issue. After a bit of finagling, I deemed it fixable but that it would require more TLC than I was able to provide in the middle of an airport. I had plenty of time to my next flight, so I asked her if I could help schlep the stroller and her other bags to her next stop and off we went. Poor thing felt so bad that I was going all the way across the airport when my gate was next door, I responded that the best part of flying on Christmas was meeting nice people along the way. Plus, not only did I get to help the mom out, but I also got to see some pretty decorations and a nice stroll through the airport to work the flying kinks out of my legs. Win-win!
Sending warm thoughts to Theo and you all!
