And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. – Hebrews 13:16 (NIV)
I happened to catch this story on CBS News and wanted to share it.
Wanda Dench wanted to give her grandchildren advance notice of Thanksgiving plans this year. And she knew the best way to communicate with “kids” these days: by text. So, instead of dialing up her grandson, the Phoenix-area woman typed a quick message.
Her message was sent to the wrong number. It was received by Jamal Hinton, a 17-year-old high school senior. After some back and forth, Hinton figured out it was not his grandma sending the text, but he asked, “Can I still get a plate tho?”
Dench didn’t skip a beat. Within seconds, she replied, “Of course you can. That’s what grandma’s do…feed everyone.”
So Jamal will be going to grandma Dench’s house for a Thanksgiving meal. I also heard that Dench invited the rest of his family, too.
Hinton posted the messages between the two on Twitter and it has been shared about 190,000 times.
