Feeling disheartened after the Hillary Clinton loss and unexpected election upset, Margot Gerster decided to take a refreshing walk in the woods with her daughters. While on her hike, she heard a bustle in the bushes, and out from the light came someone she least expected to see. 

It turned out that Gerster wasn’t the only one walking off post-election anxiety. 

Gerseter expressed that though she is not superstitious and “isn’t for signs,” but she’ll “take this one.” Her Facebook post has received over 70,000 reactions and over 6,000 shares in only five hours. 

Ive been feeling so heartbroken since yesterday’s election and decided what better way to relax than take my girls hiking. So I decided to take them to one of favorite places in Chappaqua. We were the only ones there and it was so beautiful and relaxing. As we were leaving, I heard a bit of rustling coming towards me and as I stepped into the clearing there she was, Hillary Clinton and Bill with their dogs doing exactly the same thing as I was. I got to hug her and talk to her and tell her that one of my most proudest moments as a mother was taking Phoebe with me to vote for her. She hugged me and thanked me and we exchanged some sweet pleasantries and then I let them continue their walk.

No matter who you voted for, there’s one thing we can all agree on—Clinton’s dog is fluffy and cute.
