Kindness doesn't take a lot from you when it comes from the heart, and this story is proof of that sentiment.
Christmas is a difficult time for some families who cannot always afford all the toys and presents they would like to get for their kids. However, during Christmas, there are always miracles. In a video posted by a mom and creator Roblox and Gorilla Tag Mom—who goes by @theleoseriesofficial on TikTok—she shows us how she did something nice for a stranger and her kid and we promise you, it'll make your day.
The video starts with the creator looking into the camera at a supermarket and saying how she just overheard a mom and her kid talk. The kid wanted a toy but the mom said that his budget was only five bucks. However, the creator wanted to get the toy for that kid. She also asked her son to help her find the mother-son duo, and he happily obliged. As she was on her way to find the mother, she mentioned how her kid wanted a toy but he had enough. She said, "So my son wanted a toy but my son has a lot of stuff. He doesn't need a toy." After some looking around, she finally found the duo.
She called out to the mother saying, "Hi. I want to ask you something. Did your son like this toy?" The mother, all confused, answered affirmatively. After discussing how her son enjoys toys that need a little digging, she promptly says that her son likes such things. Without wasting a moment, the creator asked the mother if she could give it to the kid. When the mother looked all confused and asked what she meant, the creator said, "Yeah, because it's Christmas almost." After giving the toy to the very happy kid, despite not exactly understanding or comprehending what happened, the creator gave the mother cash to pay for it. The creator also sweetly mentioned, "Oh, if you don't like that you can get whatever else." This gesture touched the mom who told the creator that she was very kind! After wishing each other Merry Christmas, the mothers split.
The next frame of the video pans into the creator's son's room where she says, she'd never not give a present to her son. She further explains, "I didn't get him a toy, but this is what he wanted and every year he gets something for his room for Christmas." What the kid wanted was a snowflake-shaped LED light. The creator put it up in her son's room and ended the video with a real and heartfelt statement: "Your children are always first."
The comments on this video were full of joy, love, and respect for the mother. @hannakassi expressed their concerns saying, "Nooo! cause when I was at a souvenir store, a kid wanted to buy something but his teacher said he didn’t have enough money and I wanted to gift him it but I was too scared in case the teacher thought I was a creep but I felt so bad for him cause that was me as a kid." @jjjaaaccccooooobbbbbb shared, "I didn’t have enough money for something on a school trip and my teacher offered to pay for it."
@mychildrenhaspaws advised, "Love it, but sometimes we need to understand the reason, why mom said 'no' to her son, is to discipline him from 'wants' all the time." @catherinetrembla59 appreciated the creator and said, "That's very kind of you, and I'd like the fact you didn't show the person to whom you were offering the gift, classy and meaningful," and that makes complete sense.
