Woman Shares Her One Regret In Life… And One Internet Stranger Delivers The Perfect Closure

Images show a very happy person wearing a puffin sweater that was gifted to her.

When X user Celia’s daughter asked her, “Do you ever have any regrets, Mom?” She thought for a short while and then answered that she regretted not buying a puffin sweater she had seen in Iceland three years earlier. While this may seem like a trivial regret to some, it carried meaning for Celia. She shared the story of the puffin sweater in a tweet on X and had an unexpected and unbelievable response.

Dave Wiskus responded that he had the identical sweater he had purchased for his wife, who had never worn it. He volunteered to send it to Celia if she covered the shipping from New York City to Berlin.

With arrangements in place, the sweater began its journey halfway around the world. Dave was true to his word and wanted nothing more than the shipping price. The sweater sells online for 220 euros or just over $236 USD.

The sweater traveled to Berlin in record time. Celia was elated. She made a second post to model the sweater. It fits her perfectly. Who could ask for more? The entire exchange, from the first post to the sweater’s arrival, was only ten days!

Many of the comments under the puffin sweater tweet expressed interest in following the story. After receiving the sweater, Celia made the new post and then returned to add to her original post to keep those folks in the loop. The entire saga is a testament to the beauty of many people. Dave, with his generosity, has shown us that the world can still be kind.

Celia no longer has to regret not buying the sweater, and Dave no longer regrets buying it.
