We ate at a local establishment this evening. The food was delicious and the decor adorable. My favorite part, however (besides the company of my daughter) was our server.
A beautiful smile and a friendly attitude accompanied her efficient serving. She stopped and talked with us, giving us a few details about her life.
What I realized after just a few minutes is that this woman was a hard worker. Carrying large plates of food, refilling water glasses and bussing tables looks to be an exhausting way to earn a living. Her demeanor was pleasant as she went from table to table.
I’m grateful for restaurant servers because I like eating out.
Watching that young woman work so hard reminded me how often I have taken my servers for granted. On this Thankful Thursday I would like to acknowledge the hard work of serving and remind all of us to leave a good tip!
