Sometimes, you come across a story that warms your heart so much that it makes you want to go out into the world and actively do as much good as possible.
People find ways to help others by volunteering or donating money to organizations, for example. But when strangers help individuals, it makes a world of difference on a much more personal level. And these do-gooders aren’t looking for a reward or recognition — just the satisfaction of knowing that they’ve played a part in changing another’s life for the better.
An employee at a Denny’s diner met an extraordinary man one day. The employee was taken aback by the customer’s first question: If he could be served by a waitress who was a single mother. Now, in a post on the popular Facebook page Love What Matters, that employee says why the shocking question resulted in the most incredible surprise for that lucky waitress — and seven other families.

A Denny’s employee witnessed the incredible goodness of human nature when a man came in and asked for a single mother as a waitress. Now she’s sharing what he did next, and the unbelievable effect he had on the mom and seven other families.
In a post by Love What Matters, she tells his story: “Today I met an angel. You came into a Denny’s I work at in Utah. You asked me, ‘Can I have a waitress who is a single mother?’ I thought it was very odd, but I sat you in Crystal’s section.”
“You sat there for 2 hours just watching people. 7 families came in and ate while you were there and you paid every one of their bills, over $1,000 you paid for people you didn’t even know. I asked, ‘Why did you do that?’ You simply said, ‘Family is everything, I’ve lost all mine.’”
“Looking into your eyes while you said that made me tear up. (It’s why I walked away so quickly.) As soon as I got in the back, I broke down in tears because your eyes had so much pain in them. I just wanted to let you know, the waitress Crystal that you requested was living in a shelter with her son until she was able to save up enough to get a place.”
“Your bill was $21.34 and you left her a $1,500 tip, because of you she gets her new place next week, because of you 7 families ate for free. Crystal told me she prayed the night before for a miracle and God sent you.”
“You left before any of us could say thank you, I hope you read this because you’re truly an amazing person and you stole the hearts of every one of us here. Thank you.”
