  • When Khadijah Muhammad arrived at Cheddar’s restaurant in Knoxville, Tenn., Wednesday to work her shift as a waitress, she had received a second notice on her door that utilities would be turned off at her home if a payment was not made.

    Her struggle to pay bills was further strained when  her mother fell ill from a heart attack earlier this month.

    “All I wanted was to see my mother one more time,” Muhammad said. “With God’s help, I managed to make it up there driving in the middle of the big snow storm that hit earlier this month. I was able to see her and she pulled through, thankfully. When I got back home in Knoxville, it started to sink in how much work I missed and that I was not going to be able to pay all of my bills. I’ve been trying to pick up any extra shifts that I can.”

    But during her Wednesday shift, a family she was serving rung up a $29.30 bill, but left a $1,075, WBIR reports.

    “I just remember seeing a comma after the one and knew it wasn’t $10,” she said. “And I was like, ‘Oh, my God!’ And I just lost my balance and I was like, ‘Does this say a thousand dollars?’ I could not believe it.”

    But it was true: the family left nearly $1,100 with note that read, “Jesus Blessed us and we were led to give it to you. God Bless!”
