The Waffle House has become a staple of a variety of people’s nights, whether you’re just hanging out with your friends or family, or you’re meeting up with a group of co-workers for a late-night meeting. The restaurant chain is known for being a place where everyone feels welcome, and that extends to their customers as well. When a country singer sat down at this waffle house and saw a single mom busting her ass, he left her a generous tip of $1,000. She was working a double shift to make ends meet for her and her daughter.

The Sweet Story Behind the Tip

The country singer had been searching for a nice, welcoming place to eat when he found the Waffle House. 

As stated by CBS17 a country singer who tipped Shirell “Honey” Lackey $1000 is going viral and she wishes to keep the singer anonymous. He tipped her $1000 after one of the entourage tipped her $50 and then brought the story of her back to them. The tip coming after their to-go order was placed


She was struggling to keep up with everything that was being thrown her way, but she was managing to work as hard and professionally as possible. To show appreciation for all she was doing, the singer left her a $1,000 tip and thanked her for all she does and even said that she’s going to make a difference in her daughter’s life someday. 

There are many times when people will judge someone based on their financial status or their occupation, but this woman proves that you shouldn't ever judge a book by its cover because there's always more than meets the eye. It feels goo to be recognized for your hard work.

The $1,000 Tip Was Enough to Make Her Day

According to Today Lackey said 

A country music star just came in the restaurant and tipped me $1,000 gave me two tickets to his next show and got my address to send the baby diapers clothes etc. (plus hugged me... twice) because I had to have her at work with me for 15 hours today

She then stated that 

He came to me and said that in a society where nobody wants to work he had to respect the hustle of someone who is willing to do whatever it took no matter what to support their child and I started crying

The Power of Kindness Is Often in the Smallest of Spaces

Sometimes the power of kindness is in the smallest of spaces. A mother working hard to provide for her daughter, a man stopping by to place a to-go order, and a generous 1 thousand dollar tip. There are many moments when people feel like they are invisible or forgotten. It's easy to feel like no one cares about you when you're struggling, but there are always kind gestures from strangers that can change your day. Even if it's just someone acknowledging that you exist with a smile as they walk past you on the street.

Final Words: Always Be There for the People Around You

The Waffle House has become a staple of a variety of people’s nights, whether you’re just hanging out with your friends or family, or you’re meeting up with a group of co-workers for a late-night meeting. The restaurant chain is known for being a place where everyone feels welcome, and that extends to their customers as well. When a country singer sat down at this waffle house and saw a single mom busting her ass, he left her a generous tip of $1,000. She was working a double shift to make ends meet for her and her daughter. This story made me so emotional because it showed me the bigger picture of life. Whenever someone is feeling sad or struggling in any way, always be there for them. We should never make anyone feel rejected or unwanted. If we truly want to live in unity and love each other unconditionally then we have to support one another no matter what walk of life they come from. We are all human beings who need kindness and love in our lives.
