Adrianna Edwards knows the meaning of hard work. In fact, just to get to her place of work each day she has to walk four and a half hours.
Edwards, a waitress at a Denny's in Galveston, Texas, had been pinching pennies in an effort to save up for a car so she wouldn't have to make the 14-mile trek to and from her job.
However, Edwards got the surprise of her life recently when an anonymous couple she had served earlier in the week surprised her with a car of her own after they had learned about her grueling commute.
The couple paid their bill and left the restaurant but returned a few hours later with keys in hand. They gifted Adrianna a 2011 Nissan Sentra, and she was totally shocked. They only asked that in return she pay it forward.
Now, the money Edwards saved to purchase herself a car will be put towards her college tuition, meaning she can get started on her education much sooner than expected.
"I still feel like I'm dreaming. Every two hours, I come look out my window to see if there's still a car there," she said. Now, she is already planning on using her good fortune to help others.
