(China Grove, NC) - Ashley England was was having a rough dinner at Stag-N-Doe pizza with her 8 year old son. Her son, Riley has epilepsy and is nonverbal. He gets frustrated when he cannot speak and decided to throw a tantrum.
One stranger turned the England family's day completely around. This stranger paid for their meal and attached a heartwarming note which read, "God only gives special children to special people."
Ashley was incredibly grateful. "To have someone do that small act towards us shows that some people absolutely understand what we are going through and how hard it is to face the public sometimes," she said. "They made me cry, blessed me more than they know. I felt like out of all the rude negative comments that we are faced with, these outweighs them. The people who care. Little did he know what struggles we had been facing lately, and this was surely needed at that moment."
Ashely posted her gratitude on Facebook: "Dear stranger, thank you for giving me a blessing tonight in a way you will never know."
And that's what's good,
