Mom's On The Verge Of Tears. Then A 'Parking Lot Grandma' Changed Everything
January 3, 2017
A woman on the verge of a mental break down had her life turned around with a simple act of kindness from a stranger.
The mother took to Facebook to share the wonderful story...
Facebook / Love What Matters
"Last night I found myself in the Essexville Meijer parking on the verge of tears after the milk I just placed in my car fell out and splattered all over the ground. Prior to this I managed to pick up a few needed items and some snacks for our low key New Year's party of four with two very tired boys. Made it through the store barely escaping a meltdown from the youngest.
Now the milk I needed was splattered on the ground. It doesn't seem like a huge deal until you find yourself with two tired kids buckled in their seats, one crying, parked almost at the end of the parking lot because it's NYE. Who shops on NYE with kids, LOL.
Anyways, little did I know a car parked across the aisle from us was watching me. I placed the cart into the cart return next to that car. A woman got out and said 'I'm so sorry you spilled your milk. I'm a grandma I know how that is. Please let me go in and get you another one.' I said no that's ok. I couldn't possibly make this "grandma" do that for me. She insisted. I finally agreed because I knew the boys needed their milk tonight. She told me to wait and she would be right back.
I waited and she came back. I offered to pay her. She wouldn't accept it. I begged her to take some money. She wouldn't. She said happy New Years. I thanked her, gave her a hug and got into the car. Not only did she get my gallon of milk but she got me an additional gallon and a meijer gift card! She has no idea what her act of kindness did for me. I was feeling exhausted and defeated for the most part this week and this strangers random act of kindness made me cry like a baby.
Thank you to the parking lot grandma. In 2017 I hope we can all be a little more like her. I'm hoping the lady that helped me out last night will see this. Please feel free to share. Less hate, more love is my hope for 2017."
