There are times where you may find yourself out alone with no company to be had, but that might not need to be the case, if you would only take a chance on others. That’s what one elderly woman did and it has inspired a beautiful viral post on Facebook which has become your Good News Story of the Day. It started when 28-year-old Eric Haralson sat down to eat alone at his local McDonald’s. Then along came 70-year-old Jan, who was also on her own but wanted a little company, so she asked Haralson if she could join him; when he said yes the two began a conversation that gained the attention of nearby Amanda Craft who snapped a photo and shared it on Facebook because it inspired joy in her to see two complete strangers sharing laughter and good company.
