When Emma Frost's eldest daughter opened the front door, loaded shopping bags and a written note sat conspicuously on the steps in front of her.
The package contained two large bags laden with house shopping and five little bags with children's lunch.
It was accompanied by a note that the food was a gift from an unnamed family to Emma's.
"Hi Emma, I'm doing food drops in the community, and someone has put your name forward to receive one. I'm also doing kids packed lunches Mon-Fri. If you don't want to receive the kids' lunches, just send me a message. Otherwise, I'll drop them between 10:30 and 12 pm," read the note.
The note further gave instructions that she did not need to go to the door as the stranger would knock, drop and leave the food branded as "a gift from our family to yours."
The mother of five, who hails from Blacon, Cheshire, revealed that she was in tears as she received the package from the kind stranger.
"When I read the note I teared up. I was shocked. It was totally unexpected," said an elated Emma.
The surprise delivery was also received with joy and gratitude by her children, the youngest at 11-months and the eldest aged 16.
"My 16-year-old was shocked and my five-year-old and four-year-old were both very excited. My 11-month old just wanted the biscuits he had spotted at the top of the bag," Emma continued.
Although whoever blessed the family is yet to be known, the grateful mother wanted to make it known that she appreciated the stranger for brightening her day.
She added that the family was full of thanks from the bottom of their hearts for having been helped in their time of need.
“On a day where I was struggling mentally, you brightened it up. It is very much appreciated and it shows there are still some people sharing their humanity around," she concluded.
