For The Elderly Lady Dressed In Her Finest
--by Crie, posted Sep 22, 2016
She was dressed in what was probably her very best and was alone.The woman set everything up around her and you could tell that this meal was a real treat for her. My partner went and talked with the people who worked there, asking them about the woman. They said she came in every weekend, ordered the same meal and wa was alone. They knew she lived alone and that this meal was a special treat she did for herself at least once a week.
Our hearts were touched by this older woman even though we never spoke. When we paid our check, we also paid for hers and then left enough money to pay for that older woman's meals at least three more times.
The staff was surprised and so tickled by what we did. We didn't want the older woman to know what we did, so we just left. It would have been wonderful to see her reaction when they told her what we did for her. I know we touched the hearts of the staff and I am sure we touched the heart of that older woman. It always feels so wonderful to do something so unexpected for a stranger!
When i gave up my seat in first class to a struggling disabled lady, the woman behind her came to me in coach with tears of thanks
