Wrong number leads to holiday miracle

A San Diego area real estate agent is being praised for her good deed -- and it all started with a wrong number.

Virginia Saenz received a voice mail last week from a stranger named Lisa, who was looking for her daughter, and was worried her grandchildren wouldn't have food for Thanksgiving. In the message, the woman said she would send money for groceries, but she would have to miss her mortgage payment to do it.

The real estate agent called the stranger back and offered to help. She then called the woman's daughter and asked what her family would like for Thanksgiving dinner.

"She said maybe eggs and milk, and it broke my heart when she said that.," said Saenz, "up to
that point, I wasn't sure if it was true or not. That's when I really knew it's a person in a bad situation."

Saenz went grocery shopping and brought the daughter a Thanksgiving meal, as well as enough food to get her through the end of the month.
