Some people have beautiful souls and this can easily be seen when you experience an actual situation with them. Often, more than a family member, a stranger helps a person feel at home. A recent example of this was shared by a mom, who was worried about a stranger sitting next to her at a cafe. The unknown woman was enjoying her breakfast near the table of the mother and her kids and because of this, the mom was worried that the person might get disturbed by her noisy children, but the opposite happened. The stranger left a note that moved the exhausted mom to tears.

Tyne was having breakfast with her husband and two young boys while on a vacation in Mooloolaba, Queensland, Australia. She soon saw a woman who was reading a book at a nearby table and panicked, thinking that she might be getting disturbed. "I immediately apologized to the lovely lady sitting near us as she had a book and was afraid the boys wouldn't be too peaceful," wrote the mom on a private group on Facebook titled "The Kindness Pandemic." She added, "We were chatting for a little and then she left her breakfast," according to The DailyMail

When her family was going to pay for the breakfast, the cashier gave them a note and what was written in it left the mom speechless. "It was such a pleasure sharing my brekkie space with you. Please keep doing what you're doing. You've got a beautiful family," the stranger had written in the note. "Hopefully you can splurge a little more at sea life today," she concluded and signed it off as "Em" with a heart symbol.

The person also paid for the family's breakfast at the cafe. The wholesome gesture made the mom "almost cry." Tyne wrote in her Facebook post, "She paid for us! And her kind words were what I needed to hear...If you are Em staying in Mooloolaba for work and went to a quirky local that's your favorite, you are an amazing soul! Thank you! We will pay it forward."

Another woman was left stunned by a stranger’s act of kindness. Ellie Farnfield was traveling from Redhill in Surrey to London Victoria on October 21, 2015, when she fainted. To her surprise, when she woke up, she found £10 (approx $12) and a handwritten letter from a random person named Tom. It read, "I hope by the time you read this you are feeling better. You had a seizure on the train and I took you off." He apologized for having possibly hurt her leg when he walked on it "before realizing" she was on the floor "having a fit."


"I'm also sorry I can't stay with you now but here is a coffee to perk you up later and £10 to make sure you get a taxi home," Tom wrote. He continued, "I've contacted people from your phone and medical help is on its way and you're with train staff. Wishing you all the best and a quick recovery. Love Tom.” She captioned the post: "Faith restored in humanity in London last night. Thank you so much to everyone who helped me–especially 'Tom'." Many tried to find Tom on social media. One person wrote, “I hope that if I ever have a seizure while by myself a guy like this would help me.”
