With so much bad news constantly flooding our news outlets, it’s easy to get the impression that the world is only filled with hate and intolerance.

That’s why good news, no matter if it’s big or small, is always a big breath of fresh air.

Though it doesn’t always have the intrigue that sadder, more upsetting news does, it also has the uncanny ability to lift our spirits and remind us that good people are out there, even if they don’t always get the proper exposure.

Facebook allows people to share their positive experiences and powerful perspectives with the entire internet, like this kind Target shopper did.

So she took to the internet to describe her story and celebrate the sweet woman who helped prove that there are still plenty of good people in the world.

“Omg… I have to share my experience with y’all.

“So I was in Old Navy (Warner Robins) with Cole initially sleep [sic] in his car seat.

“A few minutes into shopping he woke up and began to get fussy, ready to eat.”

“I proceeded back to the front of the store so I could leave my things and go get his bag — when this employee stopped me to help.

“She asked if I wanted her to hold him while I went to the car.

“I hesitated at first quite naturally but accepted her help.”

“Before I even made it to the door, Cole had stopped crying.

“When I returned, he was still so calm and content. She was so in love with his scent she said, ‘Omg, you have to smell this baby,’ to her coworker.

“I laughed. She told me she had 30 mins of time she could care for him while I shopped..

“She would sit on the floor and feed him too if I got the bottle ready. I let her.”

“She even walked around the store with him after he ate talking to him-telling him he could be a President or Teacher, whatever he chose to be and kissing him softly on his cheeks and head!

“I was so amazed at her sincerity and love shown towards him, I could barely focus on my shopping.

“After I checked out, I reached to put him in his carseat but she said, ‘NO I will walk with him to your car.’

“We talked for a few minutes while I got him settled in and she put his stroller away.

“She asked my name and told me she was Lora (Jackson I think).”

“Said it was such a blessing to have been able to care for him while I shopped, and wished us safe travels back home.

“Kind is an understatement for what this woman did! And for the second day in a row I am reminded that not everyone sees color!!

“Thank you Ms. Lora for allowing me to shop in peace today!”
