Flowers, a Plane Trip, and a Wonderful United Employee

Recent travel to help at a conference had me away from my family on my birthday. And not just any birthday, but my 40th – which apparently should be a big deal. The kids and Rick wanted to do something special for me, so a gorgeous flower arrangement arrived at my hotel.

The only problem - I had a flight back home just two days later. Getting the bouquet  through security without checking a bag seemed like it would be a feat. Too may carry-ons and such.

It may seem silly, but I prayed that I wouldn’t have to leave them at the airport.

Flowers in hand, I checked in at the United ticket counter in Orlando and a sweet lady, Dee, immediately offered to help. She was also a wedding coordinator and quickly whisked the flowers from me, wrapped them in paper towels and took them into the back to put plastic wrap around the base as well.

And that small offering almost made me cry. It may have been a little thing that I prayed for, but God was in the little details – why do we ever doubt this?

It’s moments like these that remind me of the kindness of others and thankful for employees that go the extra mile to assist in making a trip for a customer that much better. {Thanks, United and Dee!}.
