Officer Shows Up At Woman's House - She Breaks Down In Tears After Seeing What He Put In Mail Box

A Taylor police officer has been lauded for his kindness, honesty, understanding and incredible professionalism. When Nicole Walker called her mother, she was struggling through a very difficult time in her life. "I called my mom and said I am so tired of being here," said Ms. Walker. "Life keeps throwing me all these curve balls and what am I supposed to do?"

Ms. Walker, a young mother, had just been confronted with major challenges. After recovering from a painful and debilitating surgery, Ms. Walker checked out of the hospital and began planning to return to work and spend some one-on-one time with her 5-year-old daughter, Madison. However, life had more difficult plans for Ms. Walker. As soon as she returned home, Ms. Walker noticed that her car had developed mechanical issues while she was hospitalized. Following this setback, the downtrodden mother was also served with a residency termination notice and informed that she only had 30 days to find a new home for herself and her daughter.

When Ms. Walker’s mother – who had noticed how upset Nicole was on the phone – became aware of the specifics of her daughter’s situation, she began to worry about her mental health. The next day, Ms. Walker’s mother began calling her daughter and received no response. In a panic, the elderly woman called the Taylor Police Department and asked them to check in on her troubled daughter.

Luckily, Ms. Walker wasn’t having any suicidal thoughts and had simply missed her mother’s phone calls. "I get a knock at my door and it was like the police. He said are you Nicole? He was like, 'Do you want to harm yourself?'" said Ms. Walker. "I was like, no."

However, the visiting Taylor police officer, Sergeant Troy Cox, believed that something still wasn’t right and asked Ms. Walker if she was troubled by any other worries. The question was too much for Ms. Walker, who broke down in tears and began explaining her difficult situation to the compassionate police officer.

Not only did Sergeant Cox sit down and listen to the young mother’s story, he committed to helping her through her situation. The next day, as Ms. Walker drove out of her home, she noticed Sergeant Cox for a second time, saying: "He was like, 'I wanted to make sure you were fine,'" said Nicole. "'I was off for three days and I had to check on you before I was off.' He said, 'I am going to leave something in your mailbox when you come back home.'"

When Ms. Walker checked her mailbox, she found a heart-warming letter and a $50 prepaid Visa debit card. The compassionate letter read: "Nicole, sometimes life gets stressful. Sometimes we need to step back and take a deep breath. God never gives us more than we can handle. All things happen for a reason and we have to keep the glass half full especially when we have kids. So when life gets tough remember to stay strong, look to good things and pray."

Ms. Walker has already committed the money from the Visa card to a security deposit and she will always remember the kindness of Sergeant Cox, saying: "I want to meet up to thank him even though I did it over the phone but he won't do it because he doesn't want recognition - but you are a wonderful guy."
