Man gives an overwhelming tip

There are few things as heart-filling as giving someone something and expecting nothing in return.  And then doing so to a stranger…even better!

We have become so cynical these days.  We often don’t want to give to strangers because we don’t trust what they will do with our gift.  But you NEVER know where someone is coming from, what has happened to them, what has brought to the place they are today.  You never know when a smile, a kind word, or a surprise gift.

This man took the “risk” with a stranger and gave a $300 tip to the server where he and his family were dining!

My husband and I did this with a server once when we were first married.  We made small chat with our server and found out that her car needed an expensive repair.  (We ALL know what a pain car repairs are!)  We normally give 10% of our income to our church, but we decided to give that to our server instead.  We made sure to sign the check with the tip and leave right away – as much as we would have loved to see her reaction, we wanted it to be a surprise for her!  It was such an EXCITING thing to do – to surprise someone with a gift!
