A kind man has made the day of a waitress with a hefty tip of $2,000 on Mother’s Day! A waitress at a small diner in Roland, Oklahoma was blessed by a Mississippi truck driver who gave her a surprise tip on last Sunday.
After moving to Roland, Brenda Pearson was working at the 4 star diners where a customer walked in and placed a to-go order. He ordered a cheeseburger and when it was time to pay, he wanted to leave a surprise tip. The customer, David Platt gave her $1,000 which he thought would be needed for Pearson!
“The other customers were coming to pay out and he said $1000,” “I said what? Are you serious? He said yes. I couldn’t believe it. I couldn’t hardly breathe. It took my breath away.” Brenda was excited to explain about the fortune!
And to her amazement, the act of kindness didn’t end there. The same customer came back for pie an hour later and this time he left another $1,000 tip! Since there were not much crowd, David thought to talk a while with Pearson. They just talked about the Lord and chat a while about her life and children. When he got the impression that she has a hard time, he felt like helping the poor waitress with the best possible manner.
“I have two children at home,” said Pearson, who recently moved to Roland. “I’ve been a stay-at-home mom for a couple of years. It will help us get caught up on the move and it was just God-sent.”
For Pearson it was like God’s intervention of providing her daily needs. But for David, it was the right thing to do for a fellow human!
“Self gratification only goes so far. So, when you`re helping another person, you`re adding something to the world. It`s an investment and people, people are what`s important.”
What a great paragon of obeying the commandment of God-Love your neighbour as you love yourself!
