The holidays are all about family. It’s a time to get together with your loved ones and celebrate your good fortunes. We can all use a little love during the holidays, and there’s something even more special about celebrating with the family that you chose (usually in the form of good friends).

That’s what happened in 2016 when Jamal Hinton received a text from an unknown “grandma” in 2016.

And their relationship grew from there.

Hinton took Wanda Dench up on her offer and enjoyed a Thanksgiving meal with his newfound family – and he continued to do so in 2017 and 2018.

And it doesn’t stop there. They even meet during the off-holiday-season!

Hinton posted a Q&A session with Dench (aka Grandma) about the mishap that turned into a blessing.

Dench said, “I grew up in the military and moved around a lot so I was always going to new places…strangers were not strangers to me…you open your ‘door’…it was normal for us.”

Always remember: kindness is free and the word “family” knows no bounds.
