A waitress who was behind on her bills received a $1,075 tip on a $29 bill this week from a generous patron at a Tennessee restaurant.
Khadijah Muhammad was in Ohio taking care of her mother over the weekend and returned to her Knoxville home Wednesday to find a notice on the doorknob threatening to turn off her electricity.
"It said, 'This is your second and final notice of past due bill to prevent service disconnection,'" she told WBIR.com
. "I was thinking I'm really going to need a miracle to pay my bills this month."

She left for her job at Cheddar's restaurant hoping to make a few extra dollars. Her shift started off with a table of three — a husband, wife, and their young child.
"They really did not stand out. They were just nice folks. I remember talking to them and having a friendly conversation like you would with a neighbor," Muhammad said. "The father ordered a country steak. The mother and son split a fish taco. They split it. They were really humble people."
The waitress delivered the bill for $29.30. When she returned to the table to collect it after the customers had left, she noticed the receipt was upside down.
"Normally as a server, when a receipt is turned upside down it means you did not get a good tip or any tip," Muhammad said. "Or people will leave a nasty note about how you messed something up with their service. I remember thinking, 'I wonder what I did wrong.' Then I picked it up and I just was in shock."
She flipped it over and was shocked to see the written-in tip of $1,075. There was also a message scribbled on the receipt: "Jesus has blessed us and we were led to give it to you! God bless!"
"I just want to thank them. Thank them so much, because I'm humbled. I'm grateful. I do believe that God led you to me at this time in my life," Muhammad said.
