A Texas waitress says she feels like she’s dreaming after a two strangers she served breakfast to gave her a new car just in time for the holiday season.
Adrianna Edwards walked almost 14 miles to and from work at a Denny’s in the city of Galveston.
Edwards, who was saving money to purchase a car, was forced to make the more than five hour walk almost daily to reach her job.
‘I have bills to pay,’ Edwards told CNN. ‘I’ve got to eat. You’ve got to do what you’ve got to do.’

When Edwards walked into work on Tuesday morning, she had no idea she would be driving home in her new car.
A couple, who wish to remain anonymous, sat in her section for breakfast and eventually learned of the young woman’s daily struggle.
The couple left after finishing their meal, but returned just a few hours later with a surprise for Edwards.
They gifted her with a 2011 Nissan Sentra they had just purchased from Classic Galveston Auto Group.

Initially, Edwards thought it was a joke.
‘In my head, I was like “Pranks are cool and everything, but this one seems a tad bit cruel.”‘
The brand new car will cut Edwards’ hours long trek down to an easy 30 minute commute.
It will also help Edwards begin college earlier than she initially thought.
She said: ‘I still feel like I’m dreaming. Every two hours, I come look out my window and see if there’s still a car there.’
The generous couple were delighted that Edwards appreciated the gift, but don’t want anything in return.

‘She teared up, which made me happy that she was so moved by that,’ the woman said.
Instead, the couple only want Edwards to pay it forward and help others in need.
‘I know it’s Thanksgiving, but I said Merry Christmas and that hopefully someday she’ll pay it forward,’ the woman said.

Edwards is all too happy to oblige.
‘When I see somebody in need, I’ll probably be more likely to help them out (and) to do everything that I can to help them out,’ Edwards said.
She continued: ‘I just hope that one day when I’m financially stable enough, I can help somebody else in need.’
