GOOD NEWS Couple Leaves Note, Pays for Young Dad's Meal at Cracker Barrel
After enjoying breakfast at a Cracker Barrel with his infant son, an Ohio father received a touching, uplifting note on his windshield.
The note, which came with some cash, read, "We need more black dads like you. Today your meal is on my wife and I. Enjoy that baby boy as long as God intends. Keep doing what you're doing. The Masons"
Kevon Smith, Sr. said that he had been dining at the Cracker Barrel in Willoughby, Ohio, with his three-and-a-half-month-old son, Kevon Jr., Fox 6 reported.
"I noticed this older couple over in the corner," Smith said. "They kept smiling at me and I was looking at my son like - what is going on?"
After receiving the thoughtful note and generous gift, Smith said he was truly touched by the random act of kindness.
He said it was especially meaningful because he didn't have a father figure growing up, making the time he spends with his son even more precious.
"There's a lot of guys I know that aren't taking care of their kids," Smith said. "To show that not all of us are out here being gang bangers, some of us are out here being fathers."
"I'm definitely going to make sure I'm paying it forward," he added. "I get blessed. I want to bless someone else."
