A small blessing with big impact

Not sure if anyone knows this but I am prior military I served only a few short years before I realized I had a problem with authority (lol). Anyway...today I had lunch with my friend "peaches", she and I went through basic training and tech school together. Not one day went by that we weren't cracking up laughing...We had a blast in both places and laughing is what got us through, our relationship is still the same today (13 yrs later). Since we haven't seen each other in years I was glad to find out she still lived here. We got together today for lunch at the Olive Garden (Don't be jealous my Hawaii people ;)) and when we walked in a woman sitting at a table we passed smiled and commented on how cute E was, I said thank you, and we sat down at the table next to her. As we were sitting down I was making a comment to my friend "peaches" about how I will NEVER get used to calling her by her 1st name because in the military we go by last names; well the woman overheard us and asked if we were military, I explained that I used to be but that "peaches" was still serving, she thanked us for our sacrifice and proceeded to tell us that her daughter was in too. We continued on to our separate tables and enjoyed our time of reminiscing and laughing...all of a sudden the woman rolled her chair over to our table, apologized for interrupting and asked us what branch we were in. We told her AIR FORCE and we continued to have a brief convo about her daughter being in the ARMY and her fears because her daughter is deployed at the moment, we told her not to worry and that we'd be praying for her daughter. She thanked us and went back to her table. We continued on with our meals then I got up to take my son to the bathroom and when I got back the woman was gone. After a while the waitress came over and said "The woman that was sitting at that table took care of your bill and left you a note"...At the same time "Peaches" and I said "WHAT?!" and proceeded to read the note; it read:
I got so choked up, I couldn't believe she did that and I was so sad that I couldn't thank her. SO if by some miracle she happens upon my blog I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart...it was an honor for me to serve, and I know peaches feels the same. We were truly touched by this gesture and you will be in our prayers as well as your daughter! May God bless and keep you and yours safe!

Happy Monday all!!
