Stranger Leaves Pregnant Waitress Large Tip

A Stranger's Unexpected Act of Kindness That Changed Everything For 1 Pregnant Waitress

Sarah Clark was preparing herself for an exciting yet difficult upcoming start to 2017. At nine months pregnant, the Arizona waitress was working her last shifts before starting unpaid maternity leave in January. Unfortunately, her fiancé is also having surgery this week and will be recovering, while temporarily out of work due to the procedure, for months.

However, a customer who was also pregnant and moved by Sarah's circumstances took it upon herself to leave this expecting mom a shocking tip: $900. "I couldn't believe what I was looking at because it was such a high amount," Sarah told CBS News. "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. You always hear about these things happening, but you never expect to be the recipient of it."

Along with the generous tip, the woman left a note on the receipt before picking up her takeout order and leaving. "This is God's money — He gave it to us so we could give it to you. God bless," the unidentified woman wrote.

Sarah and the kind woman had chatted several times when the patron was in the restaurant before and Sarah said she didn't even notice the tip until the woman had already left. "I don't know if she really understands how much this is going to help us this season," Sarah said. "Me being on maternity leave and him being out of work, we're not going to be making any income. So this is really going to help with rent and other bills and things like that."
