The news these days is often depressing at worst and frustrating at best. It’s easy to let it get us down. Never fear… The News Blender has you covered. Once a week we feature Something Good and, in return, all you have to do is tell us something good that has happened to you this week, something you are thankful for, a joke, a cute animal story, an inspiring tale of heroics, a Random Act of Kindness… SOMETHING good.
Today’s something good is a random act of kindness.
When David and Candace were planning a baby shower for their baby, they accidentally sent an invitation via text to Angela White. David and Candace live in California and Angela lives in Indiana. Most people would have just ignored that invitation, knowing it was an obvious mistake.
But not Angela.
She told Fox59, “Every time I thought about it, I was like I didn’t get that text just randomly. I don’t know why, but there was a reason why I got that text and evite to that shower.”
Angela owns the Brayve Blanket Co, which makes homemade blankets. She decided to make a blanket for the couple and the soon-to-be-born Luna. In the package, Angela included a typed letter explaining the gift.
The couple was overwhelmed by the kindness of someone thousands of miles away who didn’t even know them.
Candace said, “My mom kind of put it best. She was just like oh my gosh, Luna is so blessed. My mom never talks like that. She is just so blessed and loved that a stranger sent her a gift. This is so crazy.”
An unexpected and unnecessary act of kindness is a beautiful thing and something good. Now it’s your turn… Tell me something good!
