You know when the air gets chilly, the decorations are up, and Christmas is all around? Well, mom of two and resident of Fort Myers, Florida, Mary Katherine Backstrom sure does. She was feeling totally filled with holiday spirit on Friday afternoon. While feeling festive, she was hanging around her local convenience store, Wawa, killing time before she picked her kids up from school, and she decided to let her Christmas vibe fly.
Why not, right? She was simply in a happy mood and wanted to share the joy! She had also just watched an uplifting video about random acts of kindness, and so she decided to pay it forward by her own small act of kindness. She looked behind her in line and saw that a woman was purchasing a beverage, so Mary Katherine decided to pay for her drink.
The two shared a beautiful moment, and then Mary Katherine walked out of the Wawa. It seems her joyous mood had taken over, though, because in that moment, she thought she was viewing another small act of kindness, or even a tiny Christmas miracle. She made a hilarious mistake. It was so funny, she had to share it with her Facebook followers, and when she did, she got more than she bargained for. But hey! It was all in the spirit of Christmas and good humor.
