Grandma And ‘Stranger’ Shared 7th Thanksgiving Together After She Accidentally Sent Him An Invitation Years Ago

Friendships take time to form and become much harder to maintain as an adult. But for accidental friends 21-year-old Jamal Hinton and 64-year-old Wanda Dench, all it takes is one misspent text to mark the beginning of a beautiful and strong friendship. Back in November 16, 2016, then-17-year-old Hinton received a text message from an unknown number inviting him for a Thanksgiving dinner.

When Hinton asked who the sender was, the person replied ‘Your grandma’. Hinton then asked for a picture which the sender willingly obliged. As it turned out, the sender thought she was texting her grandson. Hinton then showed a picture of him to confirm that she had texted the wrong person. Along with the revelation, Hinton humorously asked if he can still get a plate. And the woman gladly and properly invited the random teenager to Thanksgiving dinner at her home.
