A young mum in Australia has been struck by a random act of kindness.
The woman was taking her nine-week-old baby to the hospital when she was dealt a parking ticket, but a stranger decided to pay for the ticket out of her own pocket.
Laura, who wished to withhold her surname, paid the ticket and simply left a note, saying ‘I’m sure whatever you are going through at hospital is tough enough, so I have paid for you… Hope things get better!’
The mum took to Facebook (obviously) to try and grab Laura’s attention to show her gratitude for paying the fine.
Over the past few days I have been in hospital with my nine-week-old son. We were discharged today and as I walked to my car I noticed that I had a parking ticket.
After those days in hospital, a parking ticket was one more thing that I didn’t need.
Well to my surprise, when I opened the envelope there was a note from a lovely lady named Laura.
I hope that Laura sees this and knows how much I appreciate her support.
Let’s hope the kind stranger receives some good karma soon herself – if only for restoring our faith in humanity!
