This small kind act from a stranger brought joy in the life of a lonely woman
Be kind as everyone is fighting a battle inside.
Life can be a tough for many of us and sometime a small act of kindness from a stranger can ease out our pain. A small gesture of caring and kindness can affect the course of life of both the parties. What happened at Louise, Texas will warm a small corner of your heart.
Two women walked in a restaurant, both alone and both planning to dine alone. It’s a common thing and we see many individual eat alone at restaurants. It is so common that it has started to seem normal, though it’s not. Some of us still like company while eating. So, when Delores, a middle aged lady who had walked in at the restaurant requested for a table for one, something pulled strings of Brook’s heart, the second lady who had entered. She on an impulse asked Dolores that would she like to dine together since both are alone.
Delores was so happy to hear that and accepted the invitation. These ladies chatted and ate together and really connected on spiritual level. Brook found out that Dolores has lived her entire life with her ailing mother and aunt. Her mother passed away few years back and aunt has been sent to a nursing home, so practically Delores was alone.
Their lunch was such a nice experience that they intend to make a tradition out of it meeting every Thursday at the same place. Brook wrote about this on her Facebook page and the post has gone viral since then with more than 280,000 shares.

“Today I Went to eat at a restaurant for lunch and I saw this elder lady coming from afar so I waited to hold the door for her, she was very thankful and sweet. She then told the waitress, “table for one”, so I waited and hesitated but then I walked over and said, “I’m eating by myself too would you like to have lunch together?”
She was ecstatic! Come to find out she spent the last decade living with her mom who recently passed away and her aunt who recently was put into a nursing home, so she has been having a hard time being alone. We had a wonderful talk, and she just kept smiling and saying thank you for listening to me, which made me smile too! Her words healed my heart just as much as i healed her lonely one.
By far the best decision I’ve made all year!!! Her name is Delores, and we will be having lunch every Thursday from now on.”
Go ahead and do that small good thing that your heart say, act on that impulse. Brook heard the voice of her heart and gave Delores something good to look forward to and gaining a wonderful friendship in return. Remember, God is always kind that means he wants you to be kind too.
