As I was washing my hands this mother and little girl came to use the restroom. They looked like they had fallen on really hard times. I heard this little girl saying "mommy are we gonna eat today?" I waited for the mothers reply. All I heard was sobbing. The little girl said "it's okay mommy I can eat some crackers." My heart broke. I waited for them to come out and as they were washing their hands I told the mom if its okay with her I would like to buy them something to eat. She started crying. The little girls eyes lit up like it was Christmas morning. She kept saying thank you. We walked out and I found dh and we all went over to the Arby's that's in the truck stop. We let them pick whatever they wanted and after dh and I ordered and dh paid he said he would be right back. He came back five minutes later with two brand new heavy coats for this mother and daughter. They had light weight old worn out jackets. The mother faught back tears and little girl jumped up and down and showed off her "predy new coat." It said princess on the back. She asked what it said and I told her. "Yep I am. I'm mommies predy princess" we found out her dh left her and took everything they own. Besides a few things of clothes and a old beat up car they sleep in. Dh knew the area fairly well and told her of a place to go to for some help. He gave her I think about 40 for whatever. I hugged that little princess and her momma and told her to keep her head up. The little girl was four or so. Sweet as could be and the mom just looked beat down and worn out. I'm glad I could bring joy into someone's world today.

Update.
I didn't know this but dh also have her his cars with our numbers on it. The lady called us and told us thank you. The place she went to had a job opening there and a room for her and her dd along with child care during the the hours she will work. They also gave her new clothes for her and her dd. I am so happy for her and that we could help her. Just wanted to pass on the awesome news I got.
