Young Woman Holds Door Open Only to Hear Elderly Woman’s Comment and Decides to Speak Up




This story is old but this little sip of compassion might add a little sweetness to your soul. Brooke Ochoa of Louise, Texas, was walking into a restaurant for lunch. On closing the door, she spotted an elderly lady approaching. The 30-year-old patiently waited and held the door for her. After that, Ochoa overheard the woman’s request for a table for one from the hostess. Realizing the lady was set to dine alone, Ochoa told her that she too was eating alone and asked, “Would you like to have lunch together?” The elderly woman, Delores, quickly accepted Ochoa’s offer. She was just as happy as Ochoa to find a surprising buddy for lunch.
As they sat and chatted, Dolores revealed to Ochoa that she’d been having a tough time of things of late. Her mother, with whom she had lived, recently died and her aunt had moved into a nursing home. “She just kept smiling and saying thank you for listening to me, which made me smile too! Her words healed my heart just as much as I healed her lonely one,” Ochoa said. She said she and Delores had agreed to have lunch together every Thursday.
Not long after their first meeting, Brooke revealed that Dolores had died, making the fact that she was able to brighten her life all the more special.

Both were alone, so Brooke asked the woman if she could dine with her. So they sat together, chatting and eating. Brooke learned about the woman’s difficult time – her mother had recently passed away and her aunt was moved into a nursing home.
As they kept talking, they decided to start having lunch together every Thursday. Brooke’s post about her new friend has since garnered over 1.7 million likes, 225,000 shares and more than 100,000 comments.
