McDonald’s Employee Breaks Down Over Stranger’s Surprise

McDonald’s Employee Breaks Down Over Stranger’s Surprise

One of my favorite parts of the Christmas season is the kindness that compels people to act… well… better. A terrific tradition that has popped-up is the tradition of radio and television stations joining their communities to make life better for random people. Sometimes, they help with a medical bill. Sometimes, they get a hardworking family a new washer and dryer. When a radio station showed up to a McDonalds and discovered that a hardworking mother was struggling, they jumped to help.

The radio station then offered the mom a special gift, which brought even more tears to her eyes.

“Thank you to Decorah Bank & Trust Co. and some Secret Santas for making this hardworking mother’s day! We hope she and her 15-month-old baby have a happy holiday!” the radio station added.

Many viewers were touched by this moment, including one who said, “Brought tears to my eyes! I’m so doing a random act of kindness tomorrow!”

We cannot help everybody and we cannot eliminate want. We can, however, make a conscious choice to be kind and when possible, help out our fellow man.

Christmas is about more than eggnog and presents; it’s about trying to live up to the ideals offered by Christ.
