“This story illustrates how God can supply our needs in very unexpected ways.” Admin
“Our happiest server.”
That’s how the Lincoln, Neb., Cracker Barrel hostess described Abigail Sailors to the pair of gentlemen a little after 1 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 2. The men, who had originally requested to be served by the restaurant’s grumpiest server, were informed the restaurant didn’t have any “grumpy” servers. So, the hostess offered the men the opposite instead and seated them in Sailors’ area.
Smiling, chatty, bubbling with good nature, Sailors was working at the restaurant over Christmas break, having just finished her first semester of college. Her cheerfulness and genuinely warm personality stood out to her coworkers and restaurant patrons.
It would be easy to understand Sailors’ disposition—her contagious smile, her laughter, her caring for others—if her life had been idyllic, but who she was and where she came from simply didn’t add up.
