  53. Being allowed to personally complement the chef of my meal and then seeing value spark in his eyes

  55. After being called back (from the 19th floor that stopped on every single level because of the kazillion kids in the hotel) to the restaurant three times after my meal for very necessary yet comical reasons which are too long to tell here, telling that same staff who are all waiting to go home, "I have loved seeing y'all, but I mean this in the nicest way - I hope I don't see you anymore tonight!" and then all of us laughing

  62. Telling a passenger who was really worried about catching his connection in KC going to LA(because our plane was really late in taking off and he had a short connection time) that I'd pray that God would have his plane wait for him

  63. Hearing as we land how God answered that prayer (That passenger made it because the airline held the plane for the connecting passengers... Go God!! I totally looked for that guy to give him a "see what God did" look.)
