While working as a waitress at a family restaurant in my home town, I witnessed a genuinely kind gesture.
That night, after returning home from work, I felt compelled to write about it.
I logged onto my personal Facebook page and began typing.
“Tonight, a young couple, seated at the center table, called me over and asked to pay for an elderly man’s meal. After paying the man’s check, they finished their dinner and left the restaurant without saying a word. When the elderly man, who had been dining alone, asked for his bill, I told him that it was paid for by another guest. He was obviously surprised and the look on his face was one of both joy and gratitude. He felt special.”
