This is a post both for August 12, 2016 & August 14, 2016.
On Friday I had a couple come in for dinner. It was their first night out since her husband came back from basic training. She has been home with their four year old daughter while he was gone for eleven weeks. When I went over and told them their entire dinner was on us, they both started to tear up. They were so appreciative and couldn’t wait to pay it forward.
This evening Katie had a walk-in party of eight come in for dinner to celebrate their son’s return from Afghanistan. He has been gone for a year and this morning was his return. We bought his dinner as a welcome back but also as a thank you for his service. He was beyond happy!!!! 🙂
