Lucy Ehling: Birthday kindness to a little kid in Ripon

November 12, 2013 

We were at Denny’s in Ripon just a few days before my son’s seventh birthday. While being seated, he told our hostess that his birthday was in three days. Of course she said happy birthday!

Five minutes later the couple behind us came over and gave my son $7 to spend on anything he wants for his birthday. Thank you, thank you, thank you, very nice couple. It made his day and I just want him to know that there are still nice people around.
