To the young lady at walmart who made my day - Please share

Spotted: I am touched. I was walking through Wal-Mart this morning doing some regular shopping with my two daughters. As we were walking through the store I was having some random conversations with my kids. We were joking about how quickly we can shovel the snow if it snowed a lot this week. We talked about what I was going to make for dinner today and joked about how we pick the person who is going to have to do dishes. We played some I spy with my eye as we walked through the isles...just other random conversations as we typically do to make it fun while we shop. After we paid for our stuff and made our way towards the exit this man who was standing there with his 1 daughter stopped me and his daughter handed me an envelope. I asked what this was for and they said "it's a gift just because and we would like it if you accepted it. There is a note inside explaining why." His daughter asked if she could hug me and I said yes so she did and I felt such a warm hug. We said bye and went on our way. When I got into the car with my girls I opened this card up. It said "just listening to you talk to your daughters reminded me of my mother who I lost 2 years ago. I made my dad follow you around for a little so I can hear you guys talk because I wanted to pretend that it was my mom talking to me. Please accept this gift card of $20 just because you made our day. Have a great Sunday and thank you. I am in tears while I type this to submit it because I do not think you know what you have given me. You just assured me that I am a great mother even though sometimes every parent questions themselves. But, you also showed me how amazing people are in my city and how glad I am to be able to feel the hugs of my daughters. I am sorry you lost your mom at such a young age and I wish I had your contact information because I would love to take you for a coffee one day. If you do see this please email me Share this if you could in hopes this girl sees it. There is no name or anything else in the card
A mother who was really touched
