I live off the U Street corridor with my hubby and two kids–5 and 1 1/2. We had our pumpkins, that my daughter lovingly picked from a pumpkin patch, outside (not yet carved) inside of our small fenced in yard. Someone stole all 4 of our pumpkins in broad daylight. I was so upset, I put up a sign saying “To the person who stole our pumpkins, we have a very sad 5 year old. Please return them.” Jump to 8:30 pm, my doorbell rang.
There was a woman in a wheelchair–had to be in her 60s or 70s – who read our sign and was so upset, she went to the store to buy a pumpkin for my daughter!! A huge pumpkin! That this poor woman had to carry from the store in her wheelchair to our house! I was taken back by such a kind gesture. I told her I couldn’t accept, but she insisted, and I asked if I could please, please give her something (as I didn’t mean for someone ELSE to replace the pumpkins!) and she just said that I should do something nice for someone else.
My daughter told the story last night to her grandparents. When they asked if she knew who the woman was she said, “an angel.”
Thought it was amazing! Faith in humanity restored.
