The plane had touched down, but the young mother was still flying high.
She was traveling through three airports with her one and four-year-old children to visit relatives several states away.
Hauling a diaper bag, car seat, and other paraphernalia needed for two little ones, this mother had her hands full. She had thoughtfully prepared snacks, activities and everything else she could think of to make their trip go smoothly.
So an unexpected encounter with a fellow traveler was especially gratifying to her.
