Happy Friday! My posting schedule has been such a mess with this job, I just got home form work (where I don’t have internet). Please bear with me :)
Last weekend Chris and our friend Ted went hiking up Mount Cheam, which is a gorgeous mountain in our area with some pretty breathtaking views.
Sadly, I was working and missed out on this! I made him promise to take me one day.
Anyways, while hiking Chris lost his knife. The knife had more sentimental value then anything, so he was pretty bummed out about it. Ted suggested he leave a note in the parking lot with his phone number, just in case someone found it.
Low and behold, a woman called having found his knife. Chris was so thankful, and since she lived near the town I work in, I picked it up this morning from her. I also made sure to bring her a gift card to Starbucks, to thank her for her honesty and helpfulness.
It’s the small things in life that really count. Finding something that belongs to someone else, be it a knife, money, a wallet, a jacket….whatever it may be; returning it is always the best option if possible. Who hasn’t lost something that to someone else may seem meaningless or small, but is devastating when missing to you?
I have lost two pairs of shoes (I know,who does that right?), my wallet, and so many other small things. I’m kind of like a child and need reminders to pick up my belongings :) If any of these things had been returned to me, I would have been the happiest girl on earth.
I think there are certain things it is acceptable not to try and return; if I ever found $5 on the side of the road, that’s mine! But anything that is someones belongings I would make a solid effort to return.
So a big thank you to the woman who returned Chris’ knife!
Have you ever lost anything you wish had been returned?
