Christmas is a day best spent with those you love, but sometimes life and work does get in the way and you are forced to get a little creative.

Such was the case with Pierce Vaughan, a flight attendant for Delta Airlines, who had to work several flights throughout Christmas Eve and Day, so her dad Hal Vaughan bought multiple plane tickets, a ticket for each of her planned flights to be working, just to spend the day with his daughter.

Pierce’s story made it to the internet after passenger who happened to be sitting next to Hal on one of the flights, shared the encounter on his Facebook page Monday.

“I had the pleasure of sitting next to Hal on my flight back home. His daughter Pierce was our flight attendant who had to work over Christmas,” Mike Levy wrote on Facebook, sharing a photo of himself with Hal as well as a photo of Pierce in her flight attendant uniform.

“Hal decided he would spend the holiday with her. So, he is flying on each of her flights today and tomorrow around the country to spend time with his daughter for Christmas. What a fantastic father! Wish you both a very Merry Christmas!” Levy added.

Pierce later shared the photos taken by Levy on Facebook and thanked Delta for making this day possible.

Here’s to making things work, and being creative if it means getting to spend the holidays with the people who mean the most to you. It’s so worth it!
