PRATTVILLE, Ala.- A little boy wasn’t ashamed to help a stranger. In fact, his gesture created quite the stir at an Alabama waffle house.
Five-year-old Josiah Duncan and his mom Ava Faulk saw a homeless man standing inside the restaurant. Josiah asked his mom questions about the mans appearance.
Faulk says “I said, well because he’s homeless. And Josiah said, what does that mean. And I said it means he doesn’t have a house.”
Josiah felt the urge to do something and he asked his mom to buy the stranger a good meal.
“He came in and sat down, and nobody really waited on him. He just kind of sat there and Josiah jumped up and asked him if he needed a menu because you can’t order without one,” said Faulk.
The stranger wanted bacon and Faulk told him to get as much bacon as he wanted. Before the man could take the first bite, Josiah insisted on something else.
“I wanted to say the blessing with him,” he said. Josiah did, publicly with 11 other customers watching.
Josiah’s mom says, “the man just cried. And everybody else in Waffle House was crying.”
The man ate his meal and went on his way. Faulk says she left with a full heart, topped off with what she considers a touch of divine wisdom.
“You never know who the angel on Earth is, and when the opportunity comes you should never walk away from it.”
