“A lady just came up to the bakery counter and asked if we had any 1st birthday cakes on order for Saturday or Sunday. She said she wanted to pay for one.
I asked what the customer name was, thinking she was paying for a specific person.
She said, ‘No,I want to pay for one anonymously.’ She then started to tear up and tell me that she had a stillborn child a year ago and in tribute to him she wanted to pay for someone else’s cake.
I went to the cake order drawer and found this one. She told me, ‘Thank you” and that she appreciated I let her do this.
It was probably one of the most touching things I’ve seen in all my years working in retail. I hope that this lady finds peace through this tribute and that the customer receiving this gift will, if nothing else, pay it forward.
I have a son and another child on the way and I want my kids to grow up in a world where heartwarming stories and good deeds like this one greatly outweigh the negative ones.”
