Just when you think you aren’t safe in this world from strangers — it just takes one kind act to make you rethink that position.

I was in CVS this morning and out of the blue I heard my first name being said. I turned around and there was a man holding my wallet that I apparently dropped out of my purse in the parking lot. It held my entire life. Money, credit cards, health cards, numbers to my checking and savings account, just to mention a few. There he stood with my wallet.

He retrieved my life from the parking lot on Christmas Eve. I was so shaken that I didn’t get his name. I’m sorry about that. I’m sure his family knows what kind of a person he is but your true self shines when no one is looking. He is a bright shiny star.

I still would like his name. I already know the person he is.
