Thomas and Shayla Harwell were really looking forward to watching the Brad Paisley concert at the NRG Park in Houston with their 2-year-old daughter. As they were waiting in their seats for the concert to begin, they could see that an elderly woman was struggling to walk down to her seat.
Shayla nudged Thomas and said she needed help. Thomas was quick to jump from his seat to help the woman and he aided her in getting to her seat so she could enjoy the concert with her daughter and two granddaughters.
But instead of just letting that be, Thomas and Shayla, aside from watching their own young daughter, kept an eye on the elderly woman and her family throughout the concert…just to make sure they were okay.

Well she was hesitant at first, but then agreed that would probably be best. So Thomas picked her up and started carrying her from the park.
When they reached the top of the stairs, Thomas put her down, and the woman kept thanking him for his kindness. Shayla was extremely proud of her husband, and posted the following on social media: “He made me so proud…. Not only did he help get her to her seat, but she did not have the strength to come back up the stairs. So, he carried her!”
