Mom Heather Nashelle was upset and stranded at an airport. Her son Logan's surgery was scheduled for the next day, and she was dangerously close to missing her flight that would get her home in time for it. Since she had been doing trade shows all over the U.S., this involved carrying luggage--a lot of luggage. More than 375 pounds of bags, to be exact.
To say that Nashelle was struggling would have been an understatement.
But little did she know, someone was watching her.
That someone was Gus Davis, a man who helps customers move bags from cabs to check in. And as Nashelle explained in a viral Love What Matters post, not only did Davis help her with the luggage, he had something else so special in store for her.
Nashelle wrote, "Without saying much of a word at all, he pulled out his credit card, paid my luggage fee of $150 and rushed me as fast as he could through the crowd and requested full support to get me through TSA fast."
So she ran as fast as she could to get to her gate. Amazingly, she made it just in time.
But even after her son's successful surgery, she wanted to be sure Davis's act of kindness did not go unnoticed.
She wrote, "We will never know each other's stories but you exemplified humanity in its finest form, this morning. You are an amazing man to have extended me kindness without even knowing the sheer fear I was feeling in my mama heart."
Considering more than 15,000 people have liked the post, we'd say many agree he deserves the recognition too!
Well done, Gus!
