Grandmother’s Wrong Number Text Ends In An Amazing New Friendship

When people normally receive a text from a wrong number they’ll ignore it. But when Jen Deaderick got a text from an unknown number she did something a little different.

Deaderick received a series of birthday wishes from a woman named Opal, intended for her granddaughter, Samiya. Instead of just blowing off the kind woman, Deaderick replied with some details about her own life. Jen shared that her grandmother had passed away and how she missed the birthday wishes she once received. Opal was delighted to send some birthday love for Jen’s birthday.

Deaderick shared a photo of her family so Opal would know who she’s texting for.

Opal then shared a photo of her family.

Deaderick tweeted about her random and heartwarming text exchange with Opal.
