SAINT JOHN, NB–A Saint John mother says she’s overwhelmed by the response to a simple, but eloquent thank you letter she posted on the classified website Kijiji.

Jenn Booth and her son were offered a drive home last week by a woman on Westmoreland Road when Booth was having a bad day.

Booth says even though she didn’t take the drive she felt obliged to express her gratitude.

“You might now have thought much of this, but it was huge to me.  I greatly appreciate it.  Most times, I’m not at the receiving attend of people being overly kind to me, and I just think that it made me appreciate that, and I wanted her to know that.”

Booth’s thank-you letter on Kijiji has since gone viral with more than 150, 000 hits in just a couple days.

She says she has received comments from people across North America.
