Now for the news around here.
A few days ago my husband and I went out to lunch after a Dr visit. Since we don’t get out that way much we stopped at Sign of the Beef Carver. It is a cafeteria style restaurant. You can get all kinds of home made dishes and sides and it is reasonably priced. The neighborhood is comprised of older seniors and some down on their luck. Many have been out of work for a long time due to the area losing main businesses. This restaurant allows Veterans and neighborhood regulars to eat all they want for a much lower price. And some are allowed to pay as they can. The relationship between the owner and the neighborhood is one you don’t see anymore.
As we got out of the car and started toward the door we saw an elderly gentleman walking slowly toward us. Jim waited and held the door for the old man and struck up a conversation while waiting for the food to be dished out. You could tell he didn’t have many opportunities to just talk to someone.
As we made our way closer to the cashier we noticed he would have liked to choose more items but refrained. He ended up with soup and veggies with a hot cup of coffee. Jim told the cashier to put the mans meal on our bill. And then told her to pack up a large to-go package for him with a variety of all types of dishes as well as some pies. When the man, Bob, got closer to pay he realized what we had done and started to cry softly. He asked if we minded him joining us.
Over the next 45 minutes we found he had lost his wife a few months ago. They had no close relatives to help. He was still paying Dr bills but so far was able to keep his home. He couldn’t give up the house they lived in for over 60 years. We offered to drive him home but he refused. And with that, he took his package of food and left.
I haven’t been able to forget the man and his story. It is a shame that in this country of so many rich people that more are not as rich as this man. I hope we meet him again.
I challenge you all to Pay it Forward this week. Whether it is at the car wash, a fast food joint, or even at a family diner. Let me know in the comments next week if you did and a bit of your story!
