Stranger Pays for Dinner for a Family with a Special Needs Child
The England family in North Carolina went out to dinner one night with their special needs child, Riley, when out of nowhere the waitress informs the family that their bill has been paid for by a complete stranger.
The family has been going through a couple of rough weeks with their son who has had three brain surgeries due to epilepsy.
While the family was out to dinner, Riley was fussy and although he doesn’t speak he was agitated, hitting the table and was catching the attention of other patrons.
According to the news station WBTV, their waitress approached the family and said, “I’ll try to do this without crying, but another customer has paid for your bill tonight and wanted me to give you this note.”
The note simply read: “God only gives special children to special people.”
The mother was moved to tears saying, “To have someone do that small act towards us shows that some people absolutely understand what we are going through and how hard it is to face the public sometimes.”
“They made me cry, blessed me more than they know – I felt like out of all the rude negative comments that we are faced with – these outweighs them. The people who care!”
The mother and family were extremely grateful and hoped that the person that paid for their meal knew that.
What an inspiring story, what was something nice you did for someone or has someone done something nice for you?
