Its a daily routine for Barbara.
In the morning the first thing she does after making her way out the door is to go get her coffee. Straight to the Vancouver, Washington Dutch Bros. drive-thru she goes. On this particular occasion, things were taking a bit longer than usual. She was next in line at the drive-thru, yet the car in front of her simply was not moving. The car remained at the window, seemingly holding up the whole line. There was interaction at the window. More interaction than usual in fact. Not only had one worker communicated with the woman ahead, but now two more employees were huddled out the window. What in the heck was going on? It was now to the point where all three employees were stacked practically on top of one another, leaning way out the service window trying to reach toward the woman in the drivers seat. They then grabbed the womans hand, while Barbara, confused over the whole scenario, snapped a photo as to document the odd events taking place right in front of her.
And then, it was suddenly over. The woman proceeded to drive off in a normal manner. On with her day she went. Barbara was finally next, and she proceeded forward, still bewildered by the scenario that she just witnessed. Naturally she was going to find out what in the world was going on. When she did learn why three employees were holding onto the hand of a customer, she was indeed blown away. Barbara then realized just how important the photo she had taken was. With now having a story to attach to the photo, she posted it all on social media. Thousand and thousands of shares have since occurred. Heres Barbaras post, and the story of just what had happened that morning.
Snapped this picture while waiting in line at the Dutch Bros on 138th Avenue today.
Turns out the young lady in line ahead of us lost her 37-year-old husband last night.
When the DB guys & gals noticed she was falling apart, they stopped everything and prayed with her for several minutes, invited her to come back for prayer and support, as well as anything else that she might need. Prayers for the young family, and you know where to stop for coffee!
And it turns out that Dutch Bros. is fond of this sort of thing as they are also raising funds for Nathan Taylor, an officer recently killed in the line of duty. Check out this amazing video about the fundraiser and ways to help out.
Very cool what these employees did and thanks to Barbara for capturing this incredibly moving photo, while learning about the touching story behind it.
Share this wonderful act of kindness with all of your friends and family.
