Inspirational Story

The wonder of kindness

On the recent Mother’s Day a mother-of-two, Brenda Pearsons, received the best surprise gift from a customer who was a truck driver.  On talking to Brenda  while waiting for his food, David Platt found she had fallen on hard times.  She did this waiting job in the 4 star diner in Roland, Mississippi to help her make ends meet.  The cheeseburger he ordered was taking a bit long because the cooks got the order wrong. They talked about the Lord and her children.  When he finished Platt left her a tip of $1000.

He came back an hour later to buy a pie and again left her a tip of  $1000.  Brenda was so surprised, a gift like this and not even from her children.  Platt was humble and said “money as just paper or numbers on a screen.”  The interviewer said Platt considered helping people as adding something to the world, an investment and people are important.
