My mom and I decided to eat at a small, local restaurant. After placing our orders, I was looking around... the pictures on the walls, and came across a news paper article with the name of the restaurant on it. I noticed it was the lady who had just took our to-go orders on the article. I brought it to my mom's attention and she asked the lady " so you're [the name on the wall]". The lady responded that she was and started talking about the restaurant, how her daughter is the cook and her granddaughter comes to help from time to time.

She started talking about how happy she was that she was finally able to start her own restaurant when she was 50+ years old (she is currently 70). She talked about wanting to keep it in the family so that her children and grandchildren can have something. Then she started telling me not to give up on whatever I want to do in life and that if there is anything she can help with, she'll help me, stating that she has made lots of connections over the years. She gave me a little pep talk.

She got all emotional saying how she didn't have much help and that she wish she had someone that could help her, so she wanted to help me. She started crying and my mom was getting all teary eyed.

I thank her and we went on our way

My parents were once millionaires. They vowed to spend it all as they didn't want to leave their children anything and they were true to their word. They spent it all then even got a reverse mortgage on the house. There was NOTHING when they died. True psychopaths.
