An anonymous note about parenting brought tears to a father.


Faith Tap reported that a single father, Takopoke, was on a dinner date with his daughter on Valentine’s Day when he learned that someone was watching them.

Life for a single parent can be difficult with challenges continuing to grow faster than one could imagine.

However, the single mother or father would do anything to bring a little smile of their child’s face.

A person named Takopoke knows this best. A single father, he took to Imgur to share a heartwarming experience he had during Valentine’s dinner with his daughter.

The father decided that his priority was his six-year-old daughter and skipped a romantic dinner. The father-daughter duo laughed about their day and celebrated their love for each other.


What they did not realize as they were having their dinner was that someone was watching them closely. 


There was a couple at a table nearby witnessing the two having a great time together. They decided to do something special for the duo.

They left them a note that started with an apology for spying on them. They said that they saw the father with his little date and were impressed with him.

The note said, ‘From two adults who grew up without dads, it’s so important to have a male role model at a young age, Keep up the good word Dad! Dinner is on us!’

Takopoke became emotional reading the note. However, he could not thank them personally as he did not find any names or signatures on the note.

He was touched by their generosity and their sweet gesture. He posted a photo of the note he received, confessing that he ‘teared up at the table.’ He thanked the strangers for their words.

The couple’s act of kindness won many hearts. Though they will remain anonymous, their praise for the single father has made a huge difference in his life.
