He Held The Door Open For A Stranger At The Bank, Then She Slid An Envelope Under His Arm
May 29, 2018
It was a special day for Rob Edwards. His 18-year-old son was graduating, and he was trying to slow down to "savor every minute" of the day.
As he walked into his local bank, he held the door open for a complete stranger. What happened next is going to touch your heart.

This is what Rob wrote on Facebook:
I DO NOT KNOW THIS WOMAN!
But My heart was touched by her.
Today I was walking into the bank. I held the door for this lady behind me. Once in the door she waited for me to go in front of her.
I said: "By all means go in front of me. Today my son graduates. I'm slowing down and want to savor every minute."
We carried on additional small talk about being lucky to have made it before the bank closed. And the joys, fun and hard times of having an 18 year old.
I then stepped up to the teller and proceeded with my transaction. As I was finishing at the tellers booth, an envelope was placed on it from underneath my left arm.
I heard her say as she walked past: "Congratulations, I'm so happy for you".
A bit stunned I said: "Thank you". And continued finishing up my transaction.
As I walking out the bank I glanced into the envelope. A brand new crisp $50 bill. I was floored.
I rushed out of the door and looked for the woman. Far off in a car I see her.
I walked up to her car and told her: "I can't take this!"
She said: "When you talk about your boy, YOU GLOW. Your a blessing to him, I want to bless him too!"
I was so touched. I don't know her name. I've never seen her before. But I will never forget her love.
I asked to take a picture with her. And hugged her neck.
We need more of this in the world today.
Not the money.
I hugged a complete stranger today.
My son who I love with all my heart was shown love. Many of you who know me know what I believe in. Sounds kinda familiar don't it.
It warms the father's heart to love the son.
I am blessed.
Cole Edwards I'm so proud of you!
To my bank customer friend.
