Sometimes it’s the smallest of gestures that bring the most joy. This past week the Lubbock, TX country star Josh Abbott (of Josh Abbott Band) was in line at Target and got a $5 gift card back from his purchase, so he just turned around and handed it to the lady in line behind him, who burst into tears. Josh says he recognized the look on the woman’s face,
“It was the same look my mother had when I was a kid and we were dirt poor and others helped our family financially.”
So Josh gave her another $100. Turns out she is a single mother and a teacher, going through a hard year.
“I guess you just never know what someone is going through, and the kindness of strangers always wins the day. I’ve made some wrong choices in my life, and I don’t believe good deeds necessarily balance it out, but I do believe in trying.” “I hope this message comes across as humbly and authentic as it is intended. It is because of all of you supporting our music that I’m able to help others in the first place. So thank you all!”
