South Carolina Woman Brought to Tears By Kind Gesture

South Carolina Woman Brought to Tears By Kind Gesture

A South Carolina woman was shocked by a kind gesture from a man who came to her home and offered to cut her lawn on Thursday.

The man gave her the price he would charge and she let him know to come back in a week since she did not have enough money at that time. The woman said that she went inside her home and she heard a loud noise so she opened the door to see the man mowing her lawn. She ran out telling him to stop, and that she could not pay him.

“He shook his head no,” said Helen Bell. “He told me that he saw my kids playing in the yard and was worried about snakes hiding in the grass and biting them because the grass was too tall. I again told him to stop because I couldn’t pay him.”

The man told her that he did not need to be paid. He told Bell that he had grandchildren and that he hoped that someone would look after them in the same way. Bell said that she was brought to tears with his kind gesture. She gave him a hug and they talked all about their different life struggles. “He told me that this is what the news doesn’t report. He told me the news doesn’t report the black neighbor helping out the white neighbor because it isn’t good for the network to make money,” said Bell.


She thanked him for being such a good-hearted man and told him that she wished that more people were like him. He continued cutting the law following their discussion ended with another hug. The woman said that the man’s name is Johnny and that he lives in Taylors, South Carolina. “He cut my grass for free tonight because he was worried about my children playing outside in the tall grass,” added Bell.  “I hope he gets the recognition that he deserves.”
