A waitress at the Siam Palace restaurant in Grand Coulee, Wash. had her day brightened by the generosity of strangers when a couple left a $300 tip on a $14 lunch bill. The tip included a note that read, "God bless your family!"

The waitress was brought to tears by the surprise, and passed on a message of thanks to KHQ in hopes that it would find the generous tippers. Read it below:

Just when one might think that all feels lost and you thought your day couldn't get any brighter. The most amazing random act of kindness, and generosity happens and you find yourself overwhelmed with WOW!, joyous tears and gratitude! I was greatly blessed today from a couple that left me a $300 tip on a $14.17 ticket. Just goes to show you, that when you feel nothing kind and thoughtful happens in the world.. A stranger just by chance reminds you that you definitely have something in your life to be grateful for and don't forget to count your blessings. 

Thank you for making my day brighter than I could have ever imagined it could be! 

With much appreciation and gratitude,

Your waitress from Siam Palace - Grand Coulee
