Single Dad Gets Unexpected Note From Strangers And It's Everything

The world needs more notes like this.

Being a single parent is rewarding, yet hard all the same. Strangers dining at the same restaurant as Reddit user Ourcouchespulloutbutwedont and his six-year-old daughter understand this all too well. In fact, they understood and empathized so well that they left him this note and even paid for the duo's Valentine's Day dinner.


The note reads:

"Hi there! Sorry to spy, but my husband and I saw you out with your little date and were so impressed with what a great dad you are. From two adults who grew up without dads, it's so important to have a male role model at a young age. Keep up the good work Dad! Dinner is on us! :)"

The father put the note on Reddit, where he explained how much their kindness touched him: "I wont lie, I teared up at the table. So, thank you random strangers. Thank you."

"I wish I could thank them," he wrote.

For now, paying it forward will definitely suffice.
