cracker-barrel(AP) — A Nebraska waitress received far more than just a tip when she served two inquisitive customers last week.

Abigail Sailors was given a $5,000 college tuition check and $1,000 for personal use, on top of a $100 tip that she split with another server.

The men walked into a Lincoln Cracker Barrel restaurant on Thursday and asked the 18-year-old about her life. Sailors told them about her mother’s brain injury, her youth spent in foster homes and her efforts to put herself through Trinity Bible College in North Dakota. But she says she still felt blessed.

When the men were finished eating, one of them opened his checkbook. Sailors says she thanked the men, and they replied: “Thank God.”
