SALT LAKE CITY -- The gifts have all been opened inside the Rosas house, but it's one that wasn’t on anyone's list that they were most grateful for on Wednesday.

“Um, I cried,” said Terri Rosas of Salt Lake City.

As the Mom of two was waiting to catch the train home on Christmas Eve, her Christmas day came a little early.

“Out of nowhere these two gentlemen approach us,” said Rosas. “And one of them hands us an envelope.”

Inside was a $100 American Express gift card.

“As soon as he handed it to me they both started walking away, and all I could do is say, ‘Are you serious?’ And he said, ‘Yeah.’ And I said, ‘Thank you so much,’” explained Rosas.

For the single Mom, the money could go a long way, especially this time of year.

“I walked around Wal-Mart for a couple hours, putting things in the cart, and realizing, oh, I can’t really do this right now and putting stuff back,” said Rosas.

But it goes much further for Rosas, who has found the greatest gift this season was a random act of kindness, one that she has found to be invaluable.

“Merry Christmas and thank you,” Rosas said, “And I believe there are angels out there and now more so.”
