You may find that your personal guardian angel calls just when you need her the most, like this mom who didn’t expect the good fortune she was about to receive…
As the internet has seen many times before, you can never judge a book by its cover, like that heart-warming time bikers saved a little girl from being bullied. Just like that, your guardian angel can pop into your life, and you won’t be able to predict who they are or what they will look like.
Nobody will agree with this more than Kristin Sherman, a mom who felt like her luck ran out one New Year’s Eve.
She went for a quick run to the grocery store with her two tired young boys in the car in order to grab milk and similar home essentials.
Most moms will understand that once one thing goes wrong in her day, things can just snowball from there and begin spiraling out of control.
In the harsh late-evening cold, her children exhausted and irritated, one more terrible thing happened to top the list: a bottle of milk that she had just purchased fell from her car and exploded open onto the ground. How awful!
At this point she had hit the lowest point of her day, and maxed out the quota of bad events that could happen. It was then that her guardian angel arrived.
An older woman spotted her in the midst of all her struggles, and insisted that she would help her.
Take a look below at Sherman’s own words regarding the events that unfolded:
Kristin Sherman’s story of the kind, generous “parking lot grandma” went completely viral after she shared her story with Facebook users.
She told LittleThings, “I am just an ordinary person that was on the receiving end of an amazing act of kindness.
“My mission when I shared my story was that the ‘grandma’ who helped me in a moment of mommy weakness could see my gratefulness, and to show others there is hope in humanity.”
Read what she said about her beautiful experience!
“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 Year’s. 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.”
