Just when you were about to lose faith in people, stories like this come up and remind us how kind we can be.
The single mother took her two children to dinner at a Pizza Hut.
When they sat down she told the man sitting near them she was sorry if her children, who tended to be loud, interrupted his dinner.
One of her kids has both Asperger’s and ADHD and the other more minor issues.
The man told them it wouldn’t be a big deal and went back to his dinner before finishing and leaving.
The family had their pizza as well but there was still a surprise to come.
WTVD in Durham, North Carolina reports a waitress and the restaurant manager came to her table after the man had left to tell her he had paid for their meal.
WTVD writes: "The woman said with tears streaming down her face, she was handed a three page letter the man had written. Now with the waitress and the mother both crying together, they started to read the note."
"I do not know your back story, but I have had the privilege of watching you parent your children for the past 30 minutes. I have to say thank you for parenting your children in such a loving manner.
I have watched you teach your children about the importance of respect, education, proper manners, communication, self control, and kindness all while being very patient. I will never cross your path again but am positive that you and your children have amazing futures.
Keep up the good work and when it starts to get tough do not forget that others may be watching and will need the encouragement of seeing a good family being raised. God bless! -Jake"
