Girl's Wrong Number Phone Call Comforts Grieving Mom
A while back, we told you about a grandma who accidentally texted Thanksgiving plans to the wrong number, then invited the stranger over to her house for dinner anyway.
If that generous (and cute AF) grandma made you cry tears of joy, you might want to brace yourself and grab a box of tissues.
We just came across another instance in which dialing the wrong number turned into a seriously heartwarming story.
Last week, Twitter user Jaileene Andrade went to call her mom and realized she dialed the wrong number when she heard an unfamiliar voice on the receiving end of the phone.
Most of the time, people seem pretty annoyed when they answer a call from a random number and find out, oh, oops, it's a complete stranger looking for Susan.
However, this wasn't the case with the woman who answered Jaileene's call.
Apparently, Jaileene accidentally dialed a number belonging to a woman who had just lost her only daughter over the holidays.
When the woman answered the unfamiliar number and heard the caller say, "Hey, Mom," Jaileene unknowingly gave this lady "a great Christmas gift."
After hanging up with Jaileene, the woman then texted her to let her know the accidental phone call had brightened up her day.
As you can imagine, this sweet text message gave Jaileene all the feels, so she decided to share her conversation with the woman on Twitter.

It turns out Jaileene forgot to redact the woman's number before posting a screen shot of her text message online, so now lots of people have been sending lovely messages to cheer this sad mom up during Christmas.

The woman also received comforting messages from other moms on Twitter, too.

While some people have pointed out all this attention might be a bit overwhelming for the mourning mom, it turns out one Twitter user actually knows the woman IRL and said she really appreciated all of the thoughtful text messages.
