It All Happened After He Took His Son To A Restaurant
Certain incidents in life completely change the way you look at life. They are so strong in nature that it is practically impossible to ever forget them.
Unfortunately, Sean Whalen had to deal with such an incident very early in his life. When he was very young, his parents had a huge argument which resulted in his dad kicking out Sean, his mother and his brother.
#3 The Waitress
His mother worked really hard to somehow give them a decent life. Now, Sean has three children. During a recent trip to a Chinese restaurant Sean and his son regularly visit, Sean noticed a new waitress. "Over small talk and water refills, I got the sense that this single mom didn't want to be there, but had to be there and she was doing her best to smile," Sean wrote on Facebook. "It tore my heart out."
After this conversation, he decided to do something special for this waitress as she reminded him of his mom. What he did is really cute.

#2 The Post
He turned to Facebook to do something special and this is what he wrote.
"Me, mom and my little brother moved into a little condo and didn't have jack shit.
People from the church brought over pots, pans, couches, beds, and food.
My dad cashed out the bank and literally left my mom with the money in her pocket.
Not a damn thing she could do.
No family around.
No real support other than strangers from church."
He further continued, "I thought of my mom, and I saw the same hustle in this woman that I saw in my mom. A single mom. Maybe by choice. Maybe not. But working on a Wednesday night to ensure she can put food on the table and shoes on the kids feet. Not for opulence. Not for status. But to live."
#1 The Tip
He wrote more, "I can't even begin to understand what that must be like for some moms.
I know my tip won't pay her rent.
I know my tip won't pay for kids braces.
I know my tip won't keep the fridge full.
But I hoped tonight in some way it might put a smile on her face, and she can go home to her babies happier than when she left them.
I don't know her whole story.
I don't need to.
I felt tonight that maybe along the way someone did this for my mom, and that's what kept her going on nights she wanted to quit.
I don't know."
He finally left her a tip, "I have been blessed beyond measure, and my mother paved the way for my persistence. She showed me how to bounce back. She showed me what work and effort is. I hope this small gesture with my son tonight brightens this woman's life so she can wake up tomorrow and fight a good fight. Single moms who grind... RESPECT. You are beautiful and your posterity will learn from your efforts. They are watching you. Just as I watched my mom. Mom I love you. You are my hero."
Brilliant, isn't it?
