A Spokane mom went to pay down her layaway bill, only to find that a stranger had paid it for her.
It's the season of giving, but the stresses of buying can leave us feeling more like Scrooge than Saint Nick.
With how this week has been going, Scrooge is exactly who Jessica McDougald felt like.
"I have had a pretty terrible week between work, weather, cars acting up, bills being due," McDougald said.
McDougald works hard, balancing a full-time job, school, and her three children. Like most parents she envisions Christmas morning with her kids tearing off the wrapping paper, and seeing the joy in their eyes when the present's revealed.
"You want them to be super excited and you want to give them everything that they ask for," McDougald said.
McDougald had put some of the big ticket items for her children on layaway at Kmart.
"I knew that�I had to come pick up the layaway, that it was due, but funding wasn't fully available this week so�I tried to put it off until�I had the money," McDougald said.
Today on her lunch break, she showed up to make the final payment.
