For some, Mother’s Day is a very lonely holiday.
Whether you’re missing a mother who has passed away, or you’re not able to see your own children to celebrate your special day, it’s not always roses and smiles for everyone. For Barbara Foy of Horry County, South Carolina, the day started off horribly… but thanks to the kindness of strangers, it ended with her feeling showered with love.
Barbara’s son has not called her in a while, so when he didn’t take a moment to call her on Mother’s Day, she found herself feeling dejected and unloved. She decided to take herself out to lunch at a local Ruby Tuesday’s restaurant, and that’s when things started to turn around for her.
As Barbara ate her lunch alone, her server started chatting with her and learned that she had no one to celebrate Mother’s Day with. Moved and saddened, servers Christianna Smith, Mariah Brown, and Kabria Hasty decided to do something about it.
