A struggling mom who couldn’t pay for her groceries broke into tears after a kind stranger offered to pay her shopping bill.
Beth is a mother-of-three from Manchester, England, who was left devastated after realizing she didn’t bring enough money with her when she went shopping for essentials as per her weekly routine.
According to the mom, the bill amounted to $45, and her face turned red after she opened her wallet and realized she would have to return some of the items because she didn’t bring enough money with her.
While contemplating which items she should return, the young lady was approached by a Good Samaritan who paid her bill off without demanding anything in return.
Following the act of kindness, Beth recalled the emotional moment in a heartbreaking video that has since been circulating on social media.
In her clip, the mom admitted she was embarrassed when people began staring at her. And the embarrassment soon turned into full-on anxiety when she was approached by another shopper not knowing what the outcome would be.
While the mom feared she would be told off for holding up the queue, she said she was surprised when the stranger offered some words of encouragement and offered to shoulder her bill.
“The woman was really nice. She gave me a massive hug and said that she had been in the same position before,” Beth explained.
“She reminded me that just because I am struggling at the moment does not mean that I am a bad mum.”
The video quickly racked up attention on TikTok where viewers couldn’t help but share their own experiences on the matter.
“Know this feeling too well. Currently on day three of not eating myself so my kids eat, and have gas and electricity. Hope things look up for you soon,” someone wrote.
“I know this too well. I have to make a $20 stretch for me and my son every week. I go without so he doesn’t you’re a great mum, doing her best,” another said.
