Cool grandma eats Thanksgiving dinner with stranger she accidentally invited


Wanda Dench, a cool grandma, accidentally invited Jamal Hinton to Thanksgiving dinner last week after texting the wrong number. Hinton asked if he could come anyway, to which she responded, "Of course you can. That's what grandma's do…feed every one 🍰."

Hinton actually ended up attending Dench's Thanksgiving dinner.

"I'd never seen her before and she welcomed me into her home," Hinton told the local ABC affiliate. "That shows me how great of a person she is, I'm thankful for people like that."


"This wasn't me, it's come from God above," Dench said. "He's just using us as his tools and vessels to bring a message to others."
