According to Metaspoon, a four year old reportedly saw an old and lonely widower at a grocery shop and called him “old”.
According to the little girl’s mother. That fateful day was her birthday and she took her shopping because she requested to stuffs for her other siblings. As they were shopping her daughter whose name is Norah saw an older man standing next to them, and as children do, gregarious little Norah spoke directly to him. “Hi old person! It’s my birfday today!”, she said excitedly.
Seeing that she may have offended the man by calling him “OLD PERSON”, since she may have been taught not to use the word on older people, she became embarrassed and started apologizing to the man.
As one would expect for the man to angry at the mother for allowing her daughter refer to him in that man. the man instead responded by saying “Well, hello little lady! And how old are you today?”. After which they talked a little bit and went their separate ways, but before that the little girl’s mother thanked and and as usual he responded by saying ” No thank you !!!, this is one of the best days of my life” ( How sweet).
Till date the little girl, her mother and the man have become best of friends and he said that since meeting the little girl he now sleeps well at night, something which has been difficult since his wife died.
Share Mr. Dan and Norah’s story and help remind everyone of what is truly good in this world.
