What started as an accidental text message, ended up leading to one of the most loving relationships for these two strangers.

According to ABC, back in 2016, Wanda Dench thought she was sending a text message to her grandson to invite him over for Thanksgiving. She accidentally sent the message to Jamal Hinton.

Jamal was confused by the message, and asked his "grandma" to send him a selfie. Once he received a photo back of Wanda, he realized the mistake. But, still kiddingly asked if he could stop by for Thanksgiving anyway.

Wanda Dench said,  "Of course you can. That's what grandmas do ... feed everyone."

Well, Jamal headed over to Wanda's home on Thanksgiving day three years ago, and has been continuing that tradition ever since.

Jamal told Good Morning America about how he and Wanda cannot have Thanksgiving without being together now.

"Me and Wanda actually were both thinking that Thanksgiving is all about being grateful, thankful and blessed," Jamal said.

"Family is more than blood," Wanda Dench added. "It's the people you want to be with."

LOVE this tradition so much! Cannot wait to see 2020's Thanksgiving picture.
