Frank blogs about random act of kindness on flight

Frank blogged about an act of kindness on a flight: 

"'I'm hoping you can share this post so that I can be sure that it finds its way to a very special Southwest flight attendant named Anissa.'

That’s what Heather Gooch said about the flight attendant in this picture.

It’s a really nice story that every parent who’s flown with a kid will relate to.

Here’s what Heather wrote on Facebook:

'My husband and 9 month-old son were flying from Fort Lauderdale back home to Islip, NY on 12/28.

This was my son's first trip so we weren't sure how things would go.

Anissa went above and beyond to make sure that the trip went as smoothly as possible.

I have NEVER had a flight attendant as kind and as helpful as she was.

My son adored her and kept looking for her as she passed by.

At one point, she saw that he was looking for her and getting ancy so she came and picked him up and walked up and down the aisle with him while my husband and I ate our lunch.

Although this may not be a story that stands out from the rest, I wanted to thank her and let her know how appreciated she is.

We so often hear about the negative things going on so I wanted to share this story of someone who made my trip a little brighter.

Please help this get to her!

Heather’s Facebook post went viral.

And as luck would have it, Anissa saw it.

Here’s what she wrote in response:

'Y'all are going to make me cry!!!

Lol it was truly my pleasure and he made MY day!!

I tell adults all the time on my flights, children are doing exactly what they are supposed to do....make noise!

Think about it, the aircraft is completely boring to them (after takeoff) and there's nowhere to run!

I would honestly rather hear them make noise and even cry than to hear an adult whine!

They have soooooo much to talk about and mom and dad deserve a break!

I like Anissa’s attitude.

I hope Southwest Airlines does too.

Because she’s my kind of employee.
