Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings all around the world
This morning while waiting for the elevator in the parking garage, there was a woman who looked just like my Mom when she was younger. The same height, build, and beautiful face. I couldn't stop looking at her, and I blurted out "You look exactly like my Mom."
She gave me the warmest smile and I started crying. When we got on the elevator, I told her my Mom had just died in March, and she gave me the best hug (a real hug, the kind where you both hold on) while I cried. I thanked her, and she told me "I hope you have the most wonderful day."
Today I was reminded that we can make a difference in a complete stranger's day. That is so my Mom. And I know if my Mom was on the elevator with a crying stranger, she would have hugged the heck out of her too.
To this beautiful woman - thank you. I honestly felt like I was getting to hug my Mom again, and it was the best feeling ever. I hope you get to see this, I hope you know how very much your kindness meant to me, and above all, I hope you have the most wonderful day too.
