Grandma And Man She Unintentionally Texted For Thanksgiving Get Together For The 7th Year


After 7 years, a Thanksgiving tradition is still going strong following an accidental text message.

On Tuesday, Jamal Hinton posted on Instagram that he would be with Wanda Dench on Thanksgiving. Dench had believed that she was texting her grandson in 2016, to invite him over for Thanksgiving. Instead, she had unintentionally texted Hinton.

Dench, from Mesa, Arizona, didn’t know that her grandson had changed his phone number. Hinton, 17, had been in class at Desert Vista High School when he had gotten the message.

After the two determined the mistake, they sent pictures of themselves to each other. Hinton then asked if he was still invited.

“Of course, you can. That’s what grandmas do…feed everyone,” Dench responded.

Every year, Hinton documents the special occasion on social media.

In 2021, Dench and Hinton discussed their friendship.

“I would have missed out on a wonderful relationship. I’ve changed my view so much on the younger generation, and now that I’ve reflected back on all these years, I didn’t change their life; they changed mine,” she said.


  1. Thatd a blessing to the both, we cannot judge a person by the color of their skin but by their character and the respect of others
