Have you ever seen something so beautiful and heartwarming, you knew you had to share it with the world? Perhaps it was a sweet moment between a parent and child or some kind of adorable animal interaction? In this particular case, an interaction between two complete strangers tugged on Heather Leigh’s heartstrings.
She was grabbing lunch at a restaurant called Mt. Clemens Grill and realized just how many hungry patrons were waiting for a table. Then, something truly special caught her eye. She saw an elderly woman waiting in the crowded line all by herself to eat at a table for one.
Although she was there by herself and didn’t need a large table, she still had to wait among larger parties before she could be seated and eat her lunch.
It was then that Heather spotted a man walk right up to the elderly woman.
Within moments, Heather found herself grabbing her phone to take a picture because of this man’s incredible deed.
Heather was out to lunch when something truly spectacular happened.
In the distance, she noticed an elderly woman waiting all by herself — for a table for one.
What Heather saw next prompted her to grab her phone and snap a quick photo. Little did she know, posting this moment on social media would soon result in a huge response.
In Heather’s August 17, 2017, Facebook post, she explains, “Out of nowhere, this young man gets up and walks up to the lady and says, ‘I have three empty seats at my table, would you like to sit with me so you don’t have to wait?’”
She posted the photo of the sweet young man and his new friend sitting and enjoying a meal together.
In the Facebook post, she adds, “Cue the four of us at our table with our hearts MELTING as he ushers her over to his table and pulls out the chair next to him, not across from him, to sit down.
Periodically while we ate, we looked over to see them alternately sitting quietly and chatting with ease.”
Once people on Facebook saw, they couldn’t get over the young man’s random act of kindness. As of August 22, Heather’s post had 220 likes!
So, one unexpected moment at the Mt. Clemens Grill resulted in an outpouring of support and a wave of appreciation for this young man.
It’s moments like these that we never forget!
