Birthdays are some of the few joyous occasions where friends and family come together to celebrate. However, when a woman was seen cutting her birthday cake alone at a restaurant, the staff and other diners decided to join her.
In a video, which was shared by @GoodNewsMoveme3, a woman wearing a mask is seen sitting alone with a birthday cake in front of her. She then begins clapping and singing to herself but is left surprised when the restaurant staff and other patrons join her in the celebration. Touched by the sweet gesture, the woman is seen wiping off her tears as they hug her and wish her well.

I’ve probably celebrated the last 10 birthdays in my life alone. It’s what you make of it. It’s very tough when you just don’t have people around you and you also aren’t wanting anything. I usually get something good to eat and treat it like just another day. It’s how I cope.
