For one small-town waitress, she was doing everything she could to prepare for the arrival of her first baby. This meant working as much as possible to be able to afford all of the things she would need for her bundle of joy. As this waitress went about her job on a regular day, she saw a police officer enter the diner where she worked. He took a seat and proceeded to order his meal from her. He seemed like he was a little bit uncomfortable, but she served him his meal and he went on his way. She didn’t give him a second thought until she returned to the table to collect the payment and saw the note he wrote to her.
Courtney Cadigan who is just 23, knew that her life was about to change drastically. After all, she had never had a baby before. She had waited tables at the Lamp Post Diner in New Jersey for a couple of years and genuinely enjoyed it.
She wasn’t sure what her life would be like when her baby arrived, but she knew that she needed to make the most of every day. That was why she tried to give every one of her customers a smile and a cheerful remark.
Life at the diner was pretty normal. Each day she would arrive at work, begin saying “Hi” to her customers, and serve them up some delicious food. That’s why the appearance of this unknown police officer wasn’t anything outside the norm. She was used to seeing people from all walks of life, and the level of service she provided never varied.
Everyone deserves to be treated with respect, no matter their rank. That’s why, when the cop was ready to go, she was surprised to find a note waiting for her on top of the table. The note was addressed to her.
