British Samantha Welsh and Rylan, her three-year old son, traveled by train from Birmingham into Plymont. A 23-year old mother and her son played on a packed train with other passengers, while she socialized with them to pass the time.
The proud mother said that Ryan loves to talk and ask people about their lives. She also told them that their hair is beautiful. Samantha showed her son proper behavior during the trip. She taught him to cover his mouth when you cough and to always say “please” or “thank you” when buying something.
Rylan fell asleep in the arms of his mother. The man sitting next to Rylan was about to go. He handed Samantha a note saying, “Looks as if you lost it.”
The woman was certain she had not dropped anything and opened the note with curiosity. The note was 5-pounds in weight and had the following inscription: “Drink to my expense.” You are a fine representative of your generation, a polite mother who teaches her son good manners. PS. PS. I wish she would be as strong a mother one day as you.
This young mother raised her son by herself, and her kind words moved her to tears. The woman admitted that she worries constantly about her actions. – I worry about being too strict with him, or that I let go of too many things. It is so difficult for me to do it right. It means a lot that someone thinks I do everything right.
Samantha wanted to express her gratitude. She shared her story via Facebook and sought help in finding a stranger. A week later, she found out that Ken Sanders, a father of four, was on the train with her.
He also explained why he wrote a note to a young woman. On that day, he was tired. The young mother and her child were able cheer him up.
Ken wrote, “I thought she was capable of making my evening more enjoyable, so I should make hers better.”
A person can be harmed by evil words. Kind words can make a difference in our lives.
