Here's today's feel-good story:

When it comes to eating in restaurants, there are tons of stories that make the rounds about generous customers leaving large tips for the waitstaff.

Sometimes a heartfelt show of appreciation can mean so much more.

As Megan King was working a routine shift last week, she took an order from an elderly woman eating alone:

“She came in about halfway through my 17-hour shift, and it was on Sunday, which is always pretty busy,” King said. “About halfway through her meal, it started to slow down so we chatted for a few minutes. Small talk, nothing too deep. She told me she was almost 70… and she just wanted to stop by an old favorite for a bite.”

After the woman had left the restaurant, King went over to her table and noticed a note that was left for her along with the tip:

"Thank you very much for your kind service,” it read. “This was my first time eating out alone since my husband passed. I was hoping I could get through it.”
