With all the sad news these days, it’s worth remembering that love can transcend all sorts of barriers: age, race, even language.
Kate Glazer was at a mall with her three-year-old daughter. She was getting her ears pierced, and the two were relaxing on a bench before their appointment. Her daughter was naturally nervous and anxious. A few minutes later, an elderly woman sat down at the bench. She was a complete stranger, but the two instantly had a connection.
In fact, Mom was completely shocked when her daughter decided to do THIS to the elderly woman. She just had to capture the moment on camera!

The Facebook post reads:
“My 3-year-old daughter and I were at the mall on a bench after getting her ears pierced. She did great, but she was still a little anxious. After a minute or so of us sitting together, a woman came and sat down next to us. My daughter and this woman had an immediate connection. They locked eyes and although my little girl was a complete stranger to this person, she crawled across the bench to give her a hug. The woman welcomed her immediately and actually let my daughter sit on her lap and cuddle with her. My daughter is caucasian and this woman was elderly, of a different ethnicity and spoke no English. None of that mattered – in that moment it was a loving embrace from a child to a kind, gentle stranger. It felt like this was something they both needed from eachother; it was beautiful. It brought tears to my eyes. I am so thankful we were on that bench and I was able to get a picture of their moment together.”
