Mom’s Touching Post To Stranger At The Grocery Store Goes Viral

mom-shopping-at-grocery-store

Andrea Gardner is just a regular mom who like many people these days is struggling to put food on the table after her husband was laid off last fall. Her family has been put “through the wringer,” and they now rely on government assistance to feed their kids.

She was out shopping with her kids recently but was unable to pay for the few simple groceries she’d picked up, because the store’s EBT machine was down and she didn’t have her debit card or any cash with her. The random act of kindness that was then shown to her by a stranger moved her so much that she wrote an open letter “To the Woman Behind Me at the Grocery Store” on her blog.

Hotel Guest Leaves Parents Nasty Note For Bringing ‘Crying Baby’ On Vacation

crying baby

Recently, a mom and a dad and their baby went on a vacation. Nothing out of the ordinary, right? The family went to a ski resort in Colorado, where the brain surgeon dad had a conference, staying at a local hotel. And hotels, for those of you who have never been, have thin walls. During the night, the baby did what lots of babies do: cried. And the people staying next to the parents and the baby, understandably, weren’t happy. But instead of talking to the front desk about a room change, they slipped an incredibly nasty letter – anonymous, of course — under the family’s door, essentially telling them they were the worst people in the world and they completely ruined their vacation. Read the letter on The Stir…

When Jared Leto won his Oscar for Best Supporting Actor, the first person he thanked was his mother, Constance. She was also his date to the event. Clearly, the two are close. But as Jared’s speech hinted at, his childhood was a tough one. I’m not sure anyone knew how tough though. Now details about Jared’s upbringing are being reported in the media.
