In a society filled with negativity and self-centeredness, we usually underestimate the power of a spontaneous act of kindness.
These examples show that it is only natural for humans to care for one another, as simple gestures may have a big influence on our communities.
A teenage waitress in Galveston, Texas, walks approximately 14 kilometers every day.
Her four-hour journeys have helped her lose 25 pounds in only a few weeks. However, she is not doing it to lose weight or to satisfy the daily step requirement that most fitness experts would ask of you. She’s doing it because she has to pay her bills.
Adrianna Edwards works at Denny’s. And she had to wake up a few hours earlier and leave a couple of hours later in order to go to work on time. This is after a long shift as a waiter when she is always on the go.
She met a great couple when she was there. While eating breakfast, the pair learned about Edwards’ everyday hardships. She stated that she was saving money to buy an automobile. She will be able to work longer hours and drive herself to college once she has her own car.
The couple was moved by her story and decided to assist the hard-working young lady.
Following her meal, the wife wanted more ice cream, which Edwards readily supplied. Edwards had no idea she was about to get the best surprise of her life.
A few hours later, the couple returned to the restaurant. They weren’t looking for more ice cream because they were looking for her.
They had a key in their hands. They left the restaurant and headed to Classic Galveston Auto Group on Broadway Street to purchase a 2011 Nissan Sentra. They gave her the key, not realizing how much it would change her life.
The offer, according to Edwards, was too good to be true.
When the couple gave her a new car, there were no strings attached. Because it was so unlikely, Edwards felt she was being pranked.
“I was like, ‘Pranks are cool and everything,'” she explained to ABC 13. However, this one is a tad rough.
For her, this is more than just a car. It was a stepping stone to further opportunities. And if the present disappears when she wakes up, it would definitely break her heart.
The first thing I did when I got up this morning was look out my window. “To see if it’s real or if it’s all in my head.” She went on.
The car was still parked.
Her ambition to go to college is still very much alive. Rather than saving for a car, she could now start saving for her education. Her “commutes,” which used to take her 4 hours, were cut down to 30 minutes. This means she’ll have more time to unwind and pamper herself.
I gave her a card that said, “I know it’s Thanksgiving, but I said, “Merry Christmas,” and I told her she might just pay it forward someday,” the woman added.
Edwards intends to keep his word.
