Unexpected Blessings

A few days ago we were at a popular local restaurant for lunch waiting for our check when our server came over and told us we were free to go.


She got a big smile on her face and told us that another diner had paid for our meal and had asked to remain anonymous. Whaaat?! As you can imagine, we were shocked.  We (unbecomingly) started craning our necks around trying to see who this mystery diner could be. Did we know anyone there?  Nope.  All strangers.  Wow!   I know we had ridiculous smiles on our faces while we gathered children and bags, thanked the server profusely, (who had a pretty pleased smile on her face as well) and packed up to head home.

Maybe it’s silly but I was floating on a cloud the rest of the day.  To have such an unexpected act of kindness and generosity directed at our family was such a sweet surprise and so humbling.

We’re praying God blesses whoever it was.  They sure blessed us!

  1. I know what you mean…receiving a financial treat is a pleasant surprise,
    but it no doubt pales in comparison to receiving the message of good will
    and encouragement intended by Anonymous. Very sweet, and since it’s
    more blessed to give than to receive, they will be! :)
