Random acts of kindness can really make someone's day. But one woman on a Spirit Air flight went above and beyond for a mom flying with her child.
When new mom Rebekka Garvison boarded her flight in Chicago with baby Rylee, she knew the other passengers wouldn't be happy. Rylee started crying before takeoff and wouldn't stop no matter what the flustered mother tried, and the people next to Rebekka were visibly annoyed.
After asking to change seats, she wound up next to a woman she's calling her "airplane angel."
"I'm not sure if she could tell how stressed and upset I looked or what, but she turned our day completely around," Garvison told ABC News. The woman asked if she could hold Rylee, and, like magic, Rylee calmed down in the stranger's arms, eventually falling asleep and staying that way for the duration of the flight.
"She kept saying it wasn't a problem at all and it was actually a comforting feeling for her. She even carried her off the plane and held her so I could get the stroller and car seat put back together so I wasn't struggling to try and do it all alone."
The kind stranger was Nyfesha Miller. After the flight, Garvison and Miller exchanged contact info and remain in touch.
In a letter to Miller, Garvison wrote, "You will never understand how happy this act of kindness has made my family. You could've just rolled your eyes and been irritated like everyone else, but you took her and held her the entire flight and let me get some rest and peace of mind. It brought tears to my eyes...God bless you!!"
