Flight delays, cancelations, lost luggage and passengers fighting. There's no shortage of flying nightmare stories in the news.

The one that got me recently was the panel that flew off from the side of a plane mid flight causing a huge opening. Apparently the door plug flew off.

We've seen the videos of passengers getting thrown off flights for hitting flight attendants and we can't forget the long lines and flight cancelations that can ruin any family vacation.

So when I heard about this most recent story, I was thrilled. It's nice to finally hear a good story involving flying and it just so happens to be a New Jersey family.

There's always an added stress when flying with little kids, especially when it's your first time flying with a baby. Of course, that can be extremely nerve-wracking.

The Levine family is from Hoboken, New Jersey and was headed to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. They were a little worried about flying with their 5-month old baby named Romey.

According to Action News in Philadelphia, Meegan Rubin was sitting across the aisle and kept the baby "mesmerized" while crocheting during the flight.

Rubin told Good Morning America, "I was sitting in the aisle and the baby was in the aisle so she was gazing at me the entire flight."

Rubin decided to crochet the baby a surprise gift...a cute little hat.

She wanted to make something just for her and of course she had to finish before the end of the flight.

When she finished crocheting the hat she gave it to the family and passengers cheered. The hat fit the baby perfectly.

Rubin conders herself a beginner and is now crocheting more things for Romey.

The Levine family is happy to share their story because it's bringing joy to so many people. They say it's all about generosity and kindness.
