Grandma Texts Wrong Number on Thanksgiving, and It Turns into an Amazing Tradition

If somebody invited you to Thanksgiving dinner, would you say no? How about if you didn’t know them?

Well, this next story proved that one doesn’t have to know another at all to be able to share some family time and indulge in a ton of delicious food.

When Jamal Hinton received a text from an unknown number, he was sure the message was not meant for him, that they would quickly realize the mistake and apologize for sending the wrong invite.

But when he tried to play along, he was amazed at the response he got!

Not only did he she invite him over for Thanksgiving dinner, but they never even met each other at all. This was back in 2016 when the first interaction happened but the two have grown the relationship even larger.

Fast-forward to this year, when she decided to invite him again and start a new yearly tradition! “He always has an open invite to our house for Thanksgiving,” Dench told local news station KPNX. “I do believe there are no accidents in life.”

Hinton agreed. “She was so nice and welcoming last year, I said I would be there,” Jamal said of their new tradition.

“She’s a great friend.” Dench, the grandma, said the two talk at least once a week and have become good friends because of the mishap.

Their story is a powerful reminder of how important it is to be accepting of new relationships no matter what the circumstances. Even if you’re not related, it doesn’t mean you still can’t be family.
