Today I took the children to Chick Fil A after running some errands. We wear This girl runs on Chick-fil-a shirt. When we walk outside Noah, go to a woman and say “hello”. He was showing her his dinosaur shirt and telling her about a crayon. I stood nearby and waited for him. When I was standing there, I noticed she was not wearing shoes and had a bag marked as “prisoner”. I asked if she needed a drink, she said, “Yes, please. It was a hot day. “I noticed Noah was still talking to her about his pencil and had the biggest smile on his face. It warms my heart because he is very shy to strangers. I felt compelled to grab her and bring her in for a meal.
This girl runs on Chick-fil-a shirt, hoodies, sweater, v-neck t-shirt and tank top
Official This girl runs on Chick-fil-a shirt
Maybe in this encounter, This girl runs on Chick-fil-a shirt made us easier to communicate. After half an hour, I learned that she had been released from prison this morning, where she had served seven years. I seem to have bought her her first meal but not the prison food. This makes my heart smile. The owner of Chick Fil A was standing nearby to listen to her story and without hesitation, he invited her to a job and another employee invited her to a place to crash. She cried and thanked us all and hugged each boy. This woman has a second chance thanks to Noah’s loving heart. Yesterday she was a prisoner, today she is a free woman, she will be tomorrow’s newest local Chick Fil A.
