Tonya’s marriage had never been what she wanted it to be. After their divorce, she was now a single mother taking care of her kids mostly on her own. When she went to McDonalds, she only had enough money to pay for one meal. Tonya was so hungry, but she was happy her kids had at least something to eat. Then a waitress brought her a big tray full of food. Someone had seen the single mother struggle and decided to help her out. The stranger even wrote a note on a napkin, that made Tonya cry.
Tonya Davis dreamed of living a fairy tale life and to stay married to her prince charming her whole life. Unfortunately her marriage wasn’t what she had hoped it would be. Her husband had failed at multiple jobs and was a big spender. They knew he had to change, but he didn’t. When their son was born, he tried to be better, but he didn’t. When her daughter was born, Tonya knew the best thing was to file for divorce.
The parents worked out a custody arrangement for their kids. It was mostly Tonya taking car of the kids, but every two weekends, they had to stay with their dad. To meet in a neutral area, the parents met at a local McDonalds. The children didn’t like going to their father, so every time he dropped them off, Tonya bought them a McDonalds meal to make them happy again.
Unfortunately Tonya had been struggling to make ends meet, and that day she had just enough money to buy one hamburger and some fries for her kids. She asked her ex-husband if he could help her out, just enough for a small cheese burger for her, but he refused and told her: “Damn you, starve.”
She was so hungry, but was happy her kids could at least eat a little bit. Then a waitress brought a big tray full of food to her table. Apparently an anonymous person had seen Tonya struggle and decided to help her out. When she saw the note he had left her on a napkin, Tonya had to cry. The incredible heartwarming note said: “Keep your head up and always push forward. You CAN. You WILL.”
