After reading every word of the note several times, Jackie kept holding the piece of paper in utter disbelief. She began to understand what the note meant and the waitress’s intentions by writing it. Jackie just sat in her chair, crying profusely, with her husband and kids looking at her in awe.
The note hit a sensitive spot in Jackie, and too many emotions took hold of her at once. Never in her wildest dreams did she expect her family outing at a pizza restaurant to end like this. She held the note in her hands and began to get the biggest smile on her face.
A Small Note
As Jackie took a closer look at the paper, she finally noticed there was a handwritten note in tiny writing at the very bottom of the bill. She brought the paper closer to her eyes so she could read it, and the first word she made out was “breastfeeding.”
What was this waitress’s problem? Was she actually confronting Jackie for breastfeeding at the restaurant? This was unacceptable; Jackie had dealt with stares and whispers before, but no one had ever had the gall to say something to her. That was it, the waitress was about to get a piece of Jackie’s mind.
Jackie Started Crying
Right as she was about to head over to the waitress in a huff, Jackie finally took a moment to read the entire note. She started to cry. She couldn’t believe what she was reading, she got more and more emotional until she finally burst out into full tears and a huge smile.
As we’ve said before, Jackie was a powerful woman and not one to show her emotions in public. So, whatever was on that note must have been some strong words to make her cry in front of the entire restaurant. The exhaustion and emotion got the best of her, and she just let everything go.
Something that started out so oddly ended up becoming a viral sensation. Those few sentences had made their way across the internet since they had shaken Jackie so much that she shared them with the entire world. She had to post it on her social media accounts and show the world, specifically other women and mothers, that there were people out there who supported them and had their backs.
The topic of breastfeeding still caused a lot of controversy, and she wanted to address it with people around the world and bring more awareness. Jackie was shocked after she began to see people’s reactions to the note. The comments were unbelievable.
Under a screenshot of the note, Jackie wrote, “I have breastfed three children. Discreetly and out in the open, I have breastfed them in countless places, both pleasant and unpleasant. I have gotten many looks and stares, but tonight erases any negativity I have ever received.” And she hit “post” on her social media.
The note had nothing to do with her husband. In fact, it was completely addressed to her and spoke about her decision to breastfeed in public and how admirable it was. The waitress was in awe of her and wanted to give her a message to let her know that even though everyone at the restaurant might have been judging her, she noticed Jackie and saw what a supermom she was.
