A Total Stranger Waited For His Mom To Leave A Waiting Room, Then Hands Her Boy A Note That…


We need more people like this in our featured story for today. Every little act of kindness adds up to a lot.

Melissa Simms was having a terrible day. But she didn’t just stub her toe out of bed in the morning, she was living what could only be described as “hell on earth.” The woman from Pell City, Alabama had taken her son to the doctor. But when she went to the front desk to check out, she realized – much to her surprise – that she didn’t have the money for the copay.

Life hasn’t been easy for Melissa who couldn’t seem to catch a break. Just when she thought it couldn’t get any worse for her, it did when she got to a doctor’s appointment with her son in tow after he stayed home sick from school.

Melissa and her husband were in the midst of a number of stressful circumstances, from several surgeries she had that left them drained both emotionally and financially. She had just $10 to her name, which she split with her husband for gas that morning. She was at her wit’s end with the physician, finances, and now having to pull her son along to the office with her.

“Me and my husband woke up and split out last ten dollars for gas, for him to go to work and for me to make it to my doctor’s appointment,” Melissa told WBRC News. “All day I was stressed about how am I going to make supper for my kids.”

She explained that the family had extracted every last possible penny to cover the expenses and now was under a serious threat of being out of money to even eat food for that particular day.

Keeping all her problems aside, Melissa did see the doctor while her young son stayed back in the waiting room, listening to music.

In the waiting room, the kid was surprisingly approached by an unknown woman, who has not yet been identified. She handed him an envelope and instructed him to deliver it over to his mother, which the boy obediently did.

While walking to their car, the boy handed Simms the envelope and told her everything. She opened the envelope to find a note that had an important message of encouragement.

I’ve had days like you’re having today,’ it read. ‘Hang in there.” The note further cited a scripture notation of Joshua 1:9.

But most shocking of all was the fact that the envelope also had a one hundred dollar bill attached inside.

Melissa revealed that she used the extra cash to make her co-payment, buy supper for her family, and even buy a few extra requirements for the family.

She may never find this good Samaritan who didn’t do this for the notoriety, but to serve her God and His children. Melissa said that she hopes to repay the kind deed by paying it forward when she has some extra cash in her pocket and is presented with a person she can bless with it.
