    4-Year-Old At Grocery Store Calls Lonely Widower ‘Old,’ And Mom Is Floored By His Response

    Tara Wood’s daughter, Norah, was gearing up to celebrate her fourth birthday. On the day before her big day, Norah happened to explain to Tara her affinity for elderly folks — their soft skin, their slow-moving gestures, and how — since they’re reaching the end of their lifespans — she wants to “love ‘em all up before they is died.”

    Tara was so touched by Norah’s words that she shared them on her Facebook page.

    The next day was Norah’s birthday, and after school, Tara took her to the grocery store to buy some cupcakes.

    After browsing the bakery, they stopped at a clearance section — and before Tara knew it, Norah was standing up in the shopping cart and waving directly at an old man standing in the same aisle.

    “Hi old person! It’s my birfday today!” she proclaimed, desperate for the “stone-faced and furrow-browed” man to respond with just as much excitement.

    Tara was mortified that Norah called him an “old person.” She wanted to apologize profusely, then quickly be on their way.

    But just as Tara was about to shush Norah, the elderly man stopped and turned to look right at the little girl.

    What happened next began a chain of reactions that changed the lives of not only the elderly man, but also Tara, Norah, and their entire family.

    Tara Wood is a 40-something stay-at-home mom and freelance writer. She and her husband, Garrett, have seven beautiful kids. Tara recently posted the following story on TODAY Parenting:


    “The day before my daughter Norah’s fourth birthday, she foreshadowed a remarkable event.

    “I’d just picked her up from preschool when she cautioned me to mind the elderly person walking across the parking lot at a glacier’s pace.

    “She went on to explain that she has a soft spot for mature folks: ‘I like old peoples the best ‘cos they walk slow like I walk slow and they has soft skin like I has soft skin. They all gonna die soon so I’m gonna love ‘em all up before they is died.’

    “Sure, it got kinda weird and dark at the the end there, but I liked where her heart was.

    “I was struck by her thoughtfulness and empathy and posted that quote as a status update on Facebook when we got home. I had no idea how much she really meant it.”

    “The following day — her birthday — again on the way home from school, she asked if we could stop at the grocery store to buy celebratory cupcakes for her and her six siblings to enjoy after dinner.

    “How do you say ‘no’ to a birthday girl?”


    “I popped Norah and her younger sister in one of those enormous and cumbersome grocery carts shaped like a car, and headed toward the bakery. After we picked up the cupcakes, I stopped at a clearance shelf that caught my eye.

    “While I was distracted, picking up and then dismissing the bottles of almost expired Ranch dressing and cans of Ensure, Norah was busy standing up in the cart, excitedly waving and gleefully proclaiming, ‘Hi old person! It’s my birfday today!’

    “The man was elderly, stone-faced, and furrow-browed. However, before I could ‘shush’ her for calling him an ‘old person’ or ask the Earth to swallow me whole, he stopped and turned to her.

    “If he was troubled by my no-filter-having child, he didn’t show it. His expression softened as he replied, ‘Well, hello little lady! And how old are you today?’

    “They chatted for a few minutes, he wished her ‘happy birthday,’ and we went our separate ways.”


    We found the man a couple of aisles over and I approached him. ‘Excuse me, sir? This is Norah, and she’d like to know if you’d take a photo with her for her birthday?’

    “His expression rapidly morphed from confused to stunned to delighted.

    “He took a step back, steadied himself on his shopping cart, and placed his free hand on his chest. ‘A photo? With me?’ he asked.

    ‘Yes, suh, for my birfday!’ Norah pleaded.

    “And so he did. I pulled out my iPhone and they posed together. She placed her soft hand on top of his soft hand. He wordlessly stared at her with twinkling eyes as she kept his hand in hers and studied his skinny veins and weathered knuckles. She kissed the top of his hand and then placed it on her cheek. He beamed. I asked his name, and he told us to call him ‘Dan.’

    “We were blocking other shoppers and they didn’t care. There was magic happening in the grocery store that day and we could all feel it. Norah and Mr. Dan sure didn’t notice they were chatting away like long lost friends.”



    “After a few minutes, I thanked Mr. Dan for taking the time to spend a bit of his day with us. He teared up and said, ‘No, thank YOU. This has been the best day I’ve had in a long time. You’ve made me so happy, Miss Norah.’

    “They hugged again and we walked away. Norah watched him until he was out of view.

    “I’d be lying to you if I told you I wasn’t a weepy mess after their encounter.

    “I was blown away by this meeting and thought maybe some of the readers on my Facebook page might enjoy hearing about it.

    “I posted the story and a photo of the two of them.”



    “Later that night, I received a private message from a local reader who recognized Mr. Dan.

    “His wife, Mary, had passed away in March, and he had been lonely since his beloved had gone. She wanted to let me know that she was certain his heart was touched by my little girl — that he needed it and it likely would never forget it.

    “I asked for his phone number and called him a few days later.”

    “We made a visit to Mr. Dan’s cozy and tidy house — reminders of Mary still proudly displayed everywhere you look. He had gotten a haircut, shaved, and was wearing slacks and dress shoes. He looked ten years younger.

    “He’d set out a child’s table, blank paper, and crayons out for Norah. He asked if she’d draw some pictures for him to display on his refrigerator. She happily agreed and went right to work.

    “We ended up spending nearly three hours with Mr. Dan that day. He was patient and kind with my talkative, constantly moving girl. He wiped ketchup off of her cheek and let her finish his chicken nuggets.”



    As we walked him to his front door after lunch, he pulled out a pocket knife and cut the single red rose blooming by his porch. He spent ten minutes cutting every thorn off of the stem before handing it to his new friend.

    “She keeps that rose, now dry as a bone, in a Ziploc bag under her pillow.”



    “Norah asks about Mr. Dan every day. She worries about him. She wonders if he’s lonely, or cold, or has cheese for his sandwiches. She wants him to be okay. She wants him to feel loved.

    “Mr. Dan thinks about Norah, too. After another recent visit, he relayed that he hadn’t had an uninterrupted night’s sleep since his wife died. He told me that he has slept soundly every night since meeting my girl.

    “‘Norah has healed me,’ he said.

    “That left me speechless and my cheeks wet with tears.”

    “Seventy-eight years separate, these two people in age. Somehow, their hearts and souls seem to recognize each other from long ago.

    “Norah and I have made a promise to see Mr. Dan every week — even if it’s only for fifteen minutes, even if only for a quick hug and to drop off a cheese danish (his favorite!).”



    “I’ve invited him to spend Thanksgiving with us. He’s part of our family now. Whether he likes it or not, he’s been absorbed into my family of nine and just like Norah said, “We’re gonna love him all up.”

    “Sometimes talking to strangers can lead to beautiful new beginnings.

    “Give it a try.”

    It’s no wonder this incredible story is touching hearts all over the world. I’m so happy Mr. Dan and Norah have found one another, and here’s to many more years of friendship.

    Please SHARE this with your friends on Facebook, and give someone something to smile about today.

    The latest puzzle from Playbuzz asks those taking part to find the hidden meaning of a series of letters that have been muddled to create a confusing pattern. Those who score over 40 per cent are said to be good problem solvers and an outside-of-the-box thinker with a creative and curious mind.

    I mowed the lawn today, and after doing so I sat down and had a cold beer. The day was really quite beautiful, and the drink facilitated some deep thinking.

    My wife walked by and asked me what I was doing, and I said, "Nothing." The reason I said "nothing" instead of saying "just thinking" is because she then would have asked, "About what?"At that point I would have had to explain that men are deep thinkers about various topics, which would lead to other questions.

    Finally I pondered an age old question: Is giving birth more painful than getting kicked in the nuts? Women always maintain that giving birth is way more painful than a guy getting kicked in the nuts, but how could they know?

    Well, after another beer, and some more heavy deductive thinking, I have come up with an answer to that question. Getting kicked in the nuts is more painful than having a baby, and even though I obviously couldn't really know, here is the reason for my conclusion. A year or so after giving birth, a woman will often say, "It might be nice to have another child."

    On the other hand, you never hear a guy say, "You know, I think I would like another kick in the nuts."

    I rest my case. Time for another beer, and then maybe a nap.

    You simply must watch the two videos below... they are priceless and will surely tickle your funny bone.  Be careful that you watch the 1st video before going to the 2nd video. Please have your speakers on.

    This is not a trick taught to Nora. She began sitting at the piano at about one-year-old. She's almost four now. She plays only when the mood strikes her, which is usually several time a times a day for short periods.
