She Offered to Buy a “Random” Woman’s Gas—Then She Found Out What Happened to Her Mom…

You ever get in that mood where you just want to do something nice for someone for no particular reason at all?

Well that’s precisely what Cynthia did when she decided she wanted to fill up a stranger’s gas tank one day. What she didn’t know is that God orchestrated exactly who she picked, and this is how she knows…

“Today, I decided to fill up someone’s car with gas. I stopped at the first gas station near my coffee shop – but for some reason no one showed up. I decided to pick up my coffee and then stop at the gas station near my house.

This gas station has 12 pumps – I stopped at the first pump and waited for a bit but everyone was already filling up their car with gas. Then I decided to drive my car to a different pump and I said I’ll wait for a minute and see what happens.

Then…..this beautiful soul…parked her car behind mine. I looked at her and smiled – she smiled back. I thought: That’s a good sign 🙂 – she seems nice.

Then I went to her and here’s how the conversation went:

‘Hi Ma’am……(the lady was surprised to see someone by her car so she kind of panicked…then smiled)

Then I said to her: ‘I know I sound so weird….but can I buy your gas?’

‘What? Why???’ (her eyes grew wide)

Me ‘I just want to be kind…I’m dedicating this month to kindness.’

Woman: ‘are you sure???’


Then the lady brought both of her hands into prayer and looked up to the sky and said: ‘THANK YOU GOD! THANK YOU GOD!’ and she began crying at the gas station….then she moved from hugging me to crying …back and forth….so many times….

She said, ‘I just called the bank and I only had 10 dollars in my account. I have been helping my mother out because she’s sick and it’s been so hard for me financially.’

We kept hugging, crying and laughing…..I was her miracle and she was mine. She opened my heart and gave more meaning to my life.”
