A single mom in Durham, North Carolina had her faith restored in her own parenting abilities by a complete stranger.
The mom, whose kids are often hard to handle in restaurants, received a kind note applauding her patience and parenting skills from a young man at a nearby table.
After signing the note, Jake even paid for the family's dinner and included a Pizza Hut Gift Card for the next time they want to dine out.
The mother, who is remaining anonymous, told WTVD that her 6-year-old boy has ADHD and Asperger's, the other, a 4-year-old shows bullying tendencies, so they often sound loud in restaurants.
But Jake focused on the good in the situation, and wrote the following:
"I do not know your back story, but I have had the privilege of watching you parent your children for the past 30 minutes. I have to say thank you for parenting your children in such a loving manner.
"I have watched you teach your children about the importance of respect, education, proper manners, communication, self control, and kindness all while being very patient. I will never cross your path again but am positive that you and your children have amazing futures.
"Keep up the good work and when it starts to get tough do not forget that others may be watching and will need the encouragement of seeing a good family being raised. God bless! -Jake"
