We can all use a little love during the holidays, right? And it’s even sweeter when you give thanks with folks who would they later become “family”.  This happened in 2016 when Jamal Hinton received a text from an unknown “grandma” in 2016.

And their relationship grew from there.

Hinton took Wanda Dench up on her offer and enjoyed a Thanksgiving meal with his newfound family – and he continued to do so in 2017 and 2018.

And it doesn’t stop there. They even meet during the off-holiday-season!

Hinton posted a Q&A session with Dench (aka Grandma) about the mishap that turned into a blessing.

Dench said, “I grew up in the military and moved around a lot so I was always going to new places…strangers were not strangers to me…you open your ‘door’…it was normal for us.”

Always remember: kindness is free and the word “family” knows no bounds.
