*A South Carolina mother of three is counting her blessings after receiving a random act of kindness at a Columbia Walmart.

On Friday evening, Ashley Jordan and her husband, Michael, were at the store with their 1-year-old baby daughter, Kinseigh, while their other two kids Cayleigh, 5, and Aubreigh, 3, stayed at home with a sitter.

At checkout, their cashier, Sharnique Dasant, began talking to Ashley as she was loading one of their two full baskets onto the belt.

“She said ‘I think y’all need a blessing tonight!’ And she waked around to the machine and swiped the card,” Ashley, 27, tells PEOPLE. “She said ‘God told me to bless y’all!’ I said ‘Are you serious? Okay, thank you!’ ”

Ashley took a photo with Dasant and posted it to Facebook. It went viral with a quickness, with over 22,000 likes and counting.

“I wanted her friends and family to know how genuine she is, because we need to see these good stories in the world today, and it’s good to know there’s people out there who will do a blessing like this,” says Ashley. “It has opened my heart. I plan on paying it forward in the future.”
