Acts of kindness, no matter how big 鈥 like Amber Heard鈥檚 $7 million donation to charity 鈥 or small 鈥 like turning your聽Pokemon Go addiction into a聽charitable cause, or simply giving your friend a simple hug when they need it most 鈥 are always a wonderful thing. If you鈥檙e skeptical about whether or not the universe takes notice, however, we鈥檝e finally got some super scientific proof (sort of) that yes, it does. Karma is REAL, y鈥檃ll!

Case in point? Meet Kasey Simmons. The 32-year-old native of Little Elm, Texas works as a server at Applebee鈥檚, but more importantly, he鈥檚 on a mission to make people smile and spread happiness. As WFAA shared on Facebook, Kasey achieves this by 鈥済etting up every day like the Cowboys just won the Super Bowl鈥 and taking part in little acts of kindness everywhere he goes. But even he couldn鈥檛 have expected what would come of his most recent sweet gesture.

Kasey was at a local grocery store when he noticed a woman who looked seriously sad. Rather than turning a blind eye, he walked over to her, offered to pay her $17 grocery bill and, to top it all off, told her she was beautiful. Then he left, continuing on with his day, thinking he鈥檇 never see or hear from her again. Oh, how wrong he was!

The following day, Kasey served a customer who ordered the cheapest thing on the menu 鈥 a $0.37 flavored water 鈥 and left him a $500 tip, plus a touching note scribbled on a napkin. As he soon discovered, the customer was the daughter of the woman whose groceries he had paid for just the day before.

鈥淜asey, on behalf of the Sullivan family, I want to thank you for being the person you are,鈥 she wrote. 鈥淥n one of the most depressing days of the year, (the death of my father, three year anniversary) you made my mother鈥檚 day wonderful. She has been smiling since you did what you did. Her grocery was only $17.00, and you insisted on paying and told her she was a very beautiful woman.鈥

All we can say is WOW! This is one touching tale that deserves its own Hallmark TV movie. *sniffles*
