This the time of year to give thanks and reflect on our many blessings that we have received.
For many out there, it is also a time to pay it forward and do something good for others who may be less fortunate, and that is exactly what a group of women did.
Tanya Ragsdale of Cullman, Alabama started a bit of a tradition with her friend group, and it’s one that would be lovely to see take off elsewhere.
“Today, my girlfriends & I went to the Waffle House on 157 in Cullman at 6am to celebrate ‘Friendsgiving,’” Ragsdale wrote in a Facebook post she shared on Nov. 19.
Plenty of people celebrate “friendsgivings,” but few of them have $100 bills burning holes in their pockets when they gather.
When Ragsdale and her 11 friends walked into that Waffle House, though, that’s exactly what they had. She even admitted on her post that they “had a motive” — the best kind.
They were seated by the host and had no idea who their server would be.
