Sonoma, CA - USA

I am a waitress at a small diner in Sonoma, CA. I have four kids. Christmas was really small this year. Small tree. Gifts were few (many from the second hand store). The diner closes for a week during Christmas, which is a lovely gift, but terrifying for a broke family with kids to feed. It wasnt very busy Christmas Eve and I really needed to make enough money for groceries. I prayed that God would take care of us, and, as always, He did. This time he sent Peter! Peter came to eat at the diner, he sat outside with his laptop ordered a beer and breakfast. A little later, he also ordered some lunch. When he went to pay his bill.. Which was $34.65... he paid with a $100 bill. We have to make our own change (we dont have a register) and I wasnt sure I had enough to break the $100... But I did have enough. When i came back to the table, I said... "I did have enough! Let me just count this back for you." And he said, "Actually, don't bother counting it back.. Why don't you just keep it as a tip." I was stunned. Then he gave me the bracelet and asked me to come here to share my experience. He wished me a Merry Christmas... and he was gone. So, here I am to share my story.. And thank you Peter, it means so much to me and to my family!!! God Bless!
