Try not to shed a tear with this one.

Imani Shugga Simon shared this photo on social media and it is going viral. The reason why it is going viral is because of the backstory.

She and her young daughter were in a mall in Texas when this stranger walked up to them.

The man informed Imani that his grandbaby was in a hospital in Houston and that she was fighting for her life.


The gentleman said that he was always told that "if you see a seed plant a seed." Then, he handed her a $100 bill.

He planted the seed by telling this mother to buy her daughter something for Christmas from him and his granddaughter.

This is what Christmas is all about. It's about caring for each other. Now, we just hope that this man's granddaughter makes it, for he has planted the seed.

What a reminder to all of us---Just be nice this holiday season, you never know what someone may be going through.

I hope you'd share this story to remind others what this holiday season is all about.
