(Scroll down for video) A woman was left crying tears of joy after a couple gave her a huge tip.
Khadijah Muhammad works at the Cheddar’s cafe-restaurant in Knoxville, Tennessee.
She had fallen on hard times, and when a couple gave her a tip of $1,075 on a simple $29.30 order, she was overwhelmed.
Muhammad was very touched by their generosity, which came in a desperate time of need.
Muhammad has a big heart and loves to help people. During her spare time, Muhammad cooks food for the less fortunate.
However, this time it was Muhammad who was struggling to make ends meet.
Recently, her mother suffered a heart attack, and in order to be at her mother’s side, Muhammad took a break from work and traveled to Ohio.
When her mother recovered, Muhammad returned home to a pile of unpaid bills.
There was also a warning note on her door knob that her electricity would be turned off unless she paid the bill.
“I thought ‘I’m really going to need a miracle to pay my bills this month,’” Muhammad said.
“The miracle I needed came in the form of a very generous family,” she added.
