I Just Love Random Acts of Kindness

I'm trying to find a news link to this story, since all I've been able to find is a video link, but the story made me smile, so I want to share. I will add a link when I can find one.

In Virginia, a Ruby Tuesday's waitress was left a life-changing tip. The patron had a bill for $26. He or she left $1000 on the table (in $100 bills) and left a note at the top of the check to "Keep the change." and "Have a great day!" Have a great day, indeed. The 19-year-old waitress is pregnant, and you should have seen her face when she said that she could "really use" the money right now.

Sometimes people in this world just do amazingly beautiful things. I know from experience how hard waitressing can be, and it was just written all over this girl's stunned and grateful expression how much she appreciated this generosity and compassion.

Whoever you are out there, anonymous restaurant patron, you are a blessing and an inspiration. Thank you for making it so that there are stories like this to share.

Nice to hear stories like that. They stand out in this world, which is sad, I guess. You'd hope folks helping each other would be the norm, not the exception.
God must have smiled when He saw that.
