A Grand Junction woman posted a 'thank you' after getting a hug from a stranger. The woman was having a terrible day and that one hug completely turned it around.

Recently we saw a post on a local Facebook group and how a stranger's kindness made a world of a difference. The Grand Junction woman stated how she was walking with her son, who was in her stroller around 9th and Belford and was having "the absolute worst day."

That's when a stranger approached her and asked if she wanted a hug - like most people, usually she'd say no, but something about this particular stranger made her say yes. Getting the hug from them immediately made her feel a "huge sigh of relief" according to the Facebook post.

The Grand Junction woman posted on this Facebook group to tell that stranger thank you. In the post she says:

I don't know who you are but I just wanted to tell you that you had such a huge impact on my day and I'll never forget what you did. I hope our paths cross again one day but for now, I just wanted to say, thank you so much 💚"

It may seem insignificant at the time, but you never know what people are going through and what something as simple as a hug will mean to them. Some of the comments say:

  • "Angels are everywhere put on earth to comfort us. And most of them don't have FB"
  • "This was the sweetest thing I've read on here! ❤️❤️❤️"
  • "...she knows... in her heart she knows ❤️❤️"
  • "Hugs for you and hugs for the hugger. Sweet..."

We wanted to share this incident to remind everyone how one small act like this can make such a big difference.
