By the time most mothers-to-be hit the ninth month mark, most are barely ever on their feet, and most probably on leave from work, but that’s not a ‘luxury’ Sarah Clark could afford. With just a few weeks to the delivery of her baby girl, Sarah was working every shift she could, as she tried to make ends meet. With no paid maternity leave and a fiancé about to have surgery, she was trying to get as much money as she could, so that she could be able to provide for her family. So, when the heavily pregnant waitress received an unexpected 900 dollar tip, she just could not hold back the tears!
A regular customer, who was also pregnant, knew of Sarah’s situation. Sarah recalled, “I had talked to her in the past about my fiancé being injured and him being out of work, and me taking leave.”
So, when the customer came to pick up her takeout, she left something extra on her credit card slip for Sarah. Sarah received a 900 dollar tip, and a handwritten note that read,
“This is God’s money — He gave it to us so we could give it to you. God bless.”
An overwhelmed Sarah said, “I couldn’t believe what I was looking at at first because it was such a high amount,” she said. “Nine hundred dollars is a lot of money. It took a while for it to set in, and once it did I cried for a little while.”
