Grandma And Man She Accidentally Texted Spend 7th Thanksgiving Together
An accidental text message has led to a Thanksgiving tradition that is now continuing into its seventh year.
On Tuesday, Jamal Hinton confirmed on social media that he spent Thanksgiving with Wanda Dench, who in 2016 thought she was texting her grandson to invite him to Thanksgiving when she actually texted Hinton.
“From year 1 as strangers, to year 7 as family but now BUSINESS PARTNERS!” Hinton captioned this year’s post, which included an ad for BlackMP water.
In 2016, Hinton was 17 years old when he received the accidental text from Dench.
Hinton has documented the holiday each year since on his social media.
It’s a story many people look forward to seeing on Thanksgiving.
“Y’all are my favorite Thanksgiving story! Good blessed you both and your family!” an Instagram user commented on Hinton’s 2022 post.
“I’m Canadian and I can’t tell you how much your story and connection I’ve been following from day one brings me joy. Congratulations on your new adventure, wishing you many many more years and blessings. P.S. can’t wait for the Netflix movie,” another wrote.
“I love this so much. Thank you both for this beautiful continued friendship. The world needs this. It’s just so beautiful and pure. I love it. I’m happy for you guys. This makes my heart happy,” wrote another.
