No-one can properly prepare you as you approach parenthood for the first time; the sleepless nights, the exhaustion and the costs that are involved.
The cost of diapers can seem endless as babies go though many of them on a daily basis.
Often organised parents buy in bulk because it’s cheaper as they purchase over priced essential in advance for their little ones.
One mother was hoping to save money on a deal as she was out buying her monthly supply of three boxes of diapers.
Once the cashier informed her there was only a deal on the first box she decided not to purchase the offer until a stranger stepped in. The moments that followed were caught on video and has since captured the hearts of thousands around the world.
Mom Katie was purchasing diapers for her son at food chain Walmart in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, however she was informed that she couldn’t have the price deal she thought was available.
73-year-old Carol Flynn stepped in and offered to pay for them just before she was about to leave the store without them.
Initially, mom Katie refused her kind gesture, as she felt the $120 bill was far too expensive however, Carol insisted that she wanted to pay for them.
Jason Yoshino, was also waiting in line decided to record footage on his smartphone when he and his wife “ran to Walmart real quick to grab a few things,” he notes in the clip shared on his Facebook page.
The video portrays a retired March of Dimes state director Flynn offering to pay for the purchase with a credit card. Later she explained, “I just think we should do things like that. That’s kind of my thinking.”
Jason captured the heartwarming moment and remarked, “You don’t see something like that every day in life. I’ll never forget it, to be honest with you.”
Once Katie left the store she became overwhelmed with emotion as she realized what had actually just occurred.
“I couldn’t believe it. I was shocked,” she said. “I kept saying thank you and God bless you…Then I walked out in the parking lot and started crying. It just hit me. It was an awesome statement of what God’s love does.”
Carol was rewarded for her kind actions by Walmart and the diaper company also decided to send Katie and her husband four boxes of diapers.
Take a look at this random act of kindness in the video below.
