Holly Grimet of Alvin, Texas, had gone to pick up her daughter Eva’s birthday cake and cupcakes, but she was told they had already been paid for.

When she read the emotional note that the woman left behind, Holly was moved to tears:
“My son Nehemiah would be 8 years old today. I wanted to remember my son by doing good to others. I hope you enjoy your child’s cake, and I hope your day is special. Hold your baby a little tighter today. Watch them as they play, be patient with them, kiss their sweet little hand, and tell them how much you love them. Our children are such special gifts! I hope your day is beautiful. Much love from me and my angel in heaven to your family.”
Holly was moved by this mom’s loss and gratitude for her own two girls.
She shared the encounter on Facebook, writing, “Y’all this stuff never happens to me… I feel at times I’m always trying to do the right thing and wanting to be a better person even though I fall short daily. This. Melts. My. Heart. I’m a crying mess. So thankful for my babies.”
