DW, myself and ou 97 year old mother are traveling to Fredericksburg. Texas. On Christmas Day we stopped at a Dennys restaurant one of the few open. DW was attending to mom’s leg and some other minor issues as she transferred her from the wheelchair to a table chair.

A short time later a gentleman came over and talked to mom. He said “you have a very attentive daughter”, and some other small talk. He wished us well and we did the same. Thought nothing more of it.

When it was time to leave DW an mom left and I motioned to the waitress for the bill. She came over and said our bill was paid in full by the gentleman that had talked to us. I was shocked and stumbled for words for a few moments, finally asking did he leave you at tip as well?

She smiled and said yes he did. Totally stunned, I fumbled thru my wallet and left her a larger than normal tip anyway. I thought it was a great chance to pay it forward.

A trip we have been dragging our feet on not really enthusiastic about just got a whole lot better.

Love "pay it forward". It's a reminder there are many special people in this world, despite what the world wants to tell you. A little kindness goes a long way.

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.
