Family is something that is too often taken for granted. We think that bad things will never happen to our family members. And once we lose someone in our family, all we do is think that we should’ve spent more time with them. Life is full of ups and downs, but no matter what family will always be there for you when things get tough.
A man in Utah went to a local Denny’s and asked to be seated in a table with a “waitress who is a single mother.” The woman thought it to be an odd request but after that day her life was changed.
Take a look at her story below that has been shared all over the world.
“Today I met an angel. You came into a Denny’s I work at in Utah. You asked me, ‘Can I have a waitress who is a single mother?’ I thought it was very odd, but I sat you in Crystal’s section. You sat there for 2 hours just watching people.
“7 families came in and ate while you were there and you paid every one of their bills, over $1,000 you paid for people you didn’t even know.
“I asked, ‘Why did you do that?’ You simply said, ‘Family is everything, I’ve lost all mine.’ Looking into your eyes while you said that made me tear up (It’s why I walked away so quickly) as soon as I got in the back I broke down in tears because your eyes had so much pain in them. I just wanted to let you know, the waitress Crystal that you requested was living in a shelter with her son until she was able to save up enough to get a place.
“Your bill was $21.34 and you left her a $1,500 tip, because of you she gets her new place next week, because of you 7 families ate for free. Crystal told me she prayed the night before for a miracle and God sent you.
“You left before any of us could say thank you, I hope you read this because you’re truly an amazing person and you stole the hearts of every one of us here. Thank you.”
This man did something incredibly generous. With all the pain that he went through, it made him realize how important family really is. Make sure you take something from this story. When you get home from work, or from picking up your kids from school, make sure to tell everyone in your household how much you love them and appreciate them.
