"What an awesome amazing thing that she did for him out of pure kindness."

A mother from Ohio shared a beautiful post and some pictures of a random act of kindness on November 8th, and the online world took notice.

I'm really not sure where to begin. Dan and I came home from working. I didn't even see a new basketball hoop for Elijah in the yard. I just thought it was his regular hoop. Which was in really rough shape but still usable. As I walked up on the porch I noticed the ball and the instruction manual to the hoop. I didn't know where either came from. I came in I sat down and started to read the two letters attached. I instantly started crying. Come to find out a random act of kindness had happen at our home. I finally read the small print in the corner wondering who Aubrey was. I then realized that it was our female FedEx truck driver that delivers in our area. She has come around here when Eli and his friends would be playing basketball. Or Dan and I out shooting some hoops with him. She saw Eli cutting the grass one day. Told us it was awesome to start them young. Elijah did not know until he came home from his dad's we kept this a secret. We showed him and told him who it came from. He knew exactly who Aubrey was. He started crying. Instantly he was ready to play some basketball needless to say. LOL. What an awesome amazing thing that she did for him out of pure kindness. There are very much still good people in the world. I'm going to have elijah write her a letter and also get her a thank you card for the next time that we see her come through. Thank you Aubrey. You made his day. Can't wait to see you come thru, I owe you a world of thanks.

Not only that, but she continued her post - Aubrey, the FedEx driver, came back with more sandbags.

Is somebody cutting onions in here or is it just us?
