Man Holds Door Open for Lady And They Chat; He Can't Believe What She Hands Him Later

If you are under the impression that the world is a terribly messed-up place and mankind has no redeeming qualities, you have been watching too much network news. In fact, there are examples of genuine random acts of kindness happening every single day. Some stories are enough to restore your faith in humanity, such as what happened to a man on his son's graduation day.

Rob Edwards, a father in Tampa, Florida, was high on life the day in question. The father was excited because it was his 18-year-old son's high school graduation day. The proud dad was practically walking on clouds.

But even on special days, sometimes mundane chores are necessary. Edwards had to run an errand. He needed to go to the bank. He was running a bit late due to all the festivities of the day, but he made it just before the bank closed.

As he opened the door, another stranger-- a woman-- arrived at the same time. Edwards shares the encounter on Facebook.

“Today I was walking into the bank [when] I held the door open for this lady behind me... Once in the door, she waited for me to go in front of her. I said ‘By all means go in front of me. Today my son graduates. I’m slowing down and want to savor every minute.’"

Edwards and the woman got to talking as they waited on line for the next teller to be available. “We carried on additional small talk about being lucky to have made it before the bank closed – and the joys, fun and hard times of having an 18-year-old. I then stepped up to the teller and proceeded with my transaction.”

While Edwards was tending to his business, the woman stepped up behind him and slipped an envelope onto the counter for him. “Congratulations, I’m so happy for you.”

Edwards thanked her and was confused, but he was busy with the teller so he was a bit distracted. Once he concluded his business, he opened the envelope and discovered a crisp, brand-new $50 bill was in it.

The dad says he was 'floored'. He ran outside to see if he could find the woman. He spotted her getting into her car.

“I walked up to her car and told her ‘I can’t take this!’ She said ‘When you talk about your boy, YOU GLOW. You’re a blessing to him, so I want to bless him too!’” the dad shares on his Facebook account.

“I was so touched,” he added. “I don’t know her name, I’ve never seen her before. But I will never forget her love.

Edwards and the woman shared a big bear hug, and before she took off, the man asked the stranger if he could take a selfie with her. She obliged him. He posted the photo to social media and encouraged people to praise her for her kindness.

“We need more of this in the world today,” says Edwards. “Not the money, but kindness. I hugged a complete stranger today. My son who I love with all my heart was shown love … It warms the father’s heart to love the son. I am blessed.”
