Creativity at 35,000 Feet!

"Necessity is the Mother of Invention."
~Plato
  
What do you do if you need a Birthday hat in a hurry at 35,000 feet?

 
Make one out of pretzel bags and coffee stirrers, of course!
 
                        

We were returning from our trip to Disney World with our daughter, Kristen, who had just celebrated her 40th birthday with Mickey Mouse and friends. She was still wearing her “It’s My Birthday” badge from Disney World when she boarded the plane. Flight Attendant Diane noticed, wished her a "Happy Birthday", and introduced her to the pilot. 
 
But the best was yet to come!



Later in the flight, Diane turned on the intercom and announced, “We have a very special passenger with us today . . . it’s her 40th birthday. Could everyone please join me in singing “Happy Birthday” to Kristen?” She had managed to make Kristen a birthday hat out of pretzel packages and coffee stirrers and placed it on her head while everyone on board sang to her. What a wonderful, and unexpected, surprise!

 
Diane made Kristen’s day, brought tears to our eyes, and brought smiles to the faces of 180 passengers with her thoughtfulness and sensitivity.  
 
 
 We can never thank her enough for the perfect ending to the trip of a lifetime!

 
Random acts of kindness mean so much, don't they?
 


p.s. Now that the "Big Trip" is over, I promise to get caught up on this blog.
  I've been "away" longer than usual . . . having way too much fun with Mickey and friends!
