Holy cow. I saw the picture of the 4-year-old girl who asked an "old person" she spotted in the grocery store for a hug & wanted to get a picture with him for her birthday. It was circulating on Facebook and I thought to myself, "that little girl is something special. I want to be more like her."
I didn't realize that this little girl's request for a hug was part of a much bigger story. The man had lost his wife 6 months before & was in a deep depression. This little girl brought the spark back in his eyes and brought him back to life just by being her sweet, innocent self. The best part is, they visit with each other once a week.
Grab the tissues because this story will tug at the heart strings!
