Shop assistant's kind gesture to little girl leaves her mum in tears

This story will bring a smile to your face and warm your heart at the same time.

Mum Alina Cathcart was shopping in Target with her daughter one day – just a ordinary day, or so she thought. 

The little girl had been to see the new Beauty and the Beast movie the day before, and was wearing her Belle princess dress, the mum explained on in a post uploaded to the Love What Matters Facebook page. 

And her outfit caught the eye of one shopkeeper, named Cal, who went out of his way to make the youngster feel special.  

Despite being painfully shy, Cal patiently waited for her to tell him her favourite parts of the film and all about the birthday party she was invited to that weekend.

After they said goodbye, Alina explained how her daughter turned to her and said: “He is a very nice man.”

But that wasn't the end of it. 

“Ten minutes later, we once again crossed paths with Cal," Alina continued.

"He walked up to my daughter and knelt down to be on her level. With great care and sincerity, he asked if she could protect and keep this rose safe for the Beast.”

“As she barely got out a shocked, 'YES!' he quickly handed me a gift receipt for the toy and told her not to forget her promise as he left.”

Alina’s daughter was thrilled to bits with the special gift, and she explained that the act brought a tear to her eye. 

"In this crazy world, he took the time to create a special moment for a little girl who still believes in magic and that the world is filled with wonders and possibilities.

“A thousand thank you's will never be enough for you to understand what you did for my daughter and how you helped me see there IS a little magic left in this world."
