An act of kindness was preparing for takeoff.
Laura Genovich, a blogger at Happy Lawyer Mama, shared a touching post about an airport experience that could have gone terribly wrong, had it not been for the gentle hearts of strangers. Genovich was waiting on a plane with her baby to see her beloved mother, who was on her deathbed. When she learned her flight was canceled, she burst into tears while on the phone with her husband. Little did she know, a good Samaritan had been listening to the whole story.

Genovich wrote, "When I got off the phone, the woman in the seat in front of me turned around and looked me in the eye. She said, 'My name is Mary. I’ve been listening to you for the last hour and I’ve been praying for you and your family. I am not leaving your side until you are on a plane to Orlando.'"
And Mary remained true to her word, standing by her as she desperately tried to get on another flight. Many at the airport said there was no way Southwest Airlines would let her on their next flight to her destination, especially since the plane was about to take off.
But when she got to the gate, a kindhearted Southwest Airlines agent put her on the flight. And Mary went the extra selfless mile and paid for her ticket.
Genovich wrote, "She told me to go take care of my Dad, and to take care of my baby, and that would be paying it forward. Then she hugged me tightly and said, 'I love you and the Lord loves you.'"

Miraculously, Genovich made it to her mother's hospital 15 minutes before visiting hours ended, and she was able to be by her mom's side in her final days. Now, she'll never forget the kindness that Southwest and Mary showed her that day.
It looks like God truly had an amazing landing planned.
