One woman had a "proud mommy moment" last Monday when her young son stopped and shared a compassionate moment with local policemen.
According to Kelly Garza's Facebook post, she had just finished eating breakfast with her 6-year-old son at a Bob Evans in St. Petersburg, Florida. On the way out, her son spotted policemen eating and approached them.
"My sweet boy prayed over these officers, for safety and thanked them for their service," Garza wrote in her post.
Many people commented on the post, praising Garza and her son, Joshua.
In one reply, Garza said she was both proud and unsurprised by her son's actions.
"Joshua is being brought up in a very loving church, where he has learned that it's ok to share his faith and that it's an act of love to pray for others," she wrote.
Garza didn't respond to TODAY's requests for comment.
The St. Petersburg Police Department also posted about the event on Facebook, writing, "Officer Williams, Officer Blackshear and Officer Mitchell were honored to pray with this young man this morning."
"Mom is obviously doing a great job and raising a terrific kid," one commenter wrote. We agree!
