A random act of kindness made my day!

A random act of kindness made my day!

Around 2 p.m. on May 3, I stopped at Logan's Restaurant on State Route 3 for an early dinner. I was seated beside an auburn-haired lady, who I believe may have been dining with her son or younger brother. The lady and I exchanged a friendly smile and proceeded with our meals.

Upon rising to leave, the lady and I exchanged a quick smile before they departed. Shortly thereafter, the waitress approached to say that the family who had dined beside me paid for my meal. The server asked if I knew them or had conversed with them while I waited for my meal. I had not.

I was so overwhelmed and amazed (as was the server) that complete strangers would be so kind. While I do not know what prompted the gift, I do want to recognize and acknowledge how this act of kindness lifted my spirits. Thank you so much. Blessings to you and your family.
