An 8-year-old Tennessee girl has a special guardian angel this holiday season.

Bella Hosford sent a pink balloon into the sky with a note addressed to her late great grandmother on August 19, one year after her grandmother died.

Four months later and just in time for christmas, bella got a special package from a stranger. Inside was the deflated balloon, a silver locket and a note that read, "Dearest Bella, MawMaw is always with you. Just close your eyes and you will see her. Love, Your Guardian Angel."

Bella's mother wrote on Facebook that the stranger's act of kindness brought the family "tears of joy."
