Grandma's Wrong Text Has Student Spending Thanksgiving With Family 3 Years In A Row.

News |

In 2016, Wanda Dench, from Arizona, sent this text to someone she assumed was her 24-year-old grandson.

Everyone should always get a warm welcoming at the dining table for Thanksgiving, as well as the other 364 days of the year. This is why so many people always invite family and friends... and their friends’ friends too. Keep this tradition up, and you’ll wind up with a platoon for Thanksgiving every year! But coming together without letting human-constructed boundaries like race and age get in the way is what this holiday is all about. And you’ll definitely love this story about Wanda Dench, who accidentally invited Jamal Hinton over for Thanksgiving, and that tradition continues.


She ended up sending the invitation to a perfect stranger named Jamal Hinton. At the time, 17-year-old Hinton was confused when he got the text. But little did he or Dench know that this was the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
