Best Stop On The Way Home
--by foodbankcarlisa, posted Jan 7, 2018
I asked her how old she was and she told me she was 83 years young. I reached in my apron pocket and pulled out all the money I had made in my little restaurant that day and asked her to help me count it. She was happy to do so...she got a real kick out of counting the money. She said she had not seen that much money in a very long time. She soon yelled out $143.87!
I asked her to count out $83 and that was her birthday gift...a dollar for every year. She was so excited it bought her to tears...she told me it was the first time anyone had ever given her anything like that. As for me...that was my best stop on "the way home trip" ever.
