Every act of kindness, no matter how big or small, always goes a long way.
A family of four, a mother, a father, and their two twin daughters, were having dinner at a Red Lobster in Arizona celebrating Father’s Day. They resembled a perfect family, but no one at the restaurant knew that they had experienced heartbreak.
When the time came for them to leave, instead of a bill, the waitress handed them a handwritten note which read: “Enjoy your babies. They don’t stay little long. From the family across from you. God bless you.”
That was an incredibly beautiful thing to do for perfect strangers.
Touched by the good deed, Daniel and Maxi Cortez, who were both in the military, decided to share the note online in hopes of reaching to the kind people who paid for their meal. Along with it, they shared their family’s life story and explained why the kindness they received meant the world to them.
They explained that they had triplets but lost one of the babies at seven weeks old. “To you we looked like just a family of 4 celebrating the most important man in our lives. Little did you know last year we celebrated as a family of 5,” Maxi wrote.
Baby Landon caught bacterial meningitis a few weeks after being born. Sadly, he passed away.
“From the time he was born, he never closed his eyes. He just wanted to be awake all the time. It’s like he knew that he only had a short time.”
The heartbroken mother wished those strangers at the restaurant who gave them the touching note knew how much it meant to them.
We never know what others are going through, that is why we should always treat everyone with kindness.
