Thanksgiving just passed by, but stories of kindness and gratitude are still pouring in. A Texas waitress experienced an overwhelming act of kindness when a couple that she served breakfast handed her the keys to a car a few hours later.
Adrianna Edwards has to walk 14 miles everyday by foot to get to work as a waitress at a Denny’s restaurant in Galveston, Texas. “I have bills to pay,” Edwards said. “I’ve got to eat. You’ve got to do what you’ve got to do.”
The long walks will come to a stop thanks to the generosity of a couple who she served at her section during breakfast. The anonymous couple heard Edwards’ story and that she was saving money to buy a car and in a few hours, they returned with a 2011 Nissan Sentra they purchased at Classic Galveston Auto Group.
“She teared up, which made me happy that she was so moved by that,” said the woman who bought the car. Now Edwards can drive back and forth to work in 30 minutes which previously would take her more than four hours.
“I still feel like I’m dreaming. Every two hours, I come look out my window and see if there’s still a car there,” she said.
The couple asked her to someday pay the kind gesture forward which Edwards intends to do. “I just hope that one day when I’m financially stable enough, I can help somebody else in need,” she said.
