1. hello everyone,
    Just wanted to share a brief story that happened today. We were in a Goodwill thrift store and an older lady was ahead of us in line, buying a small wallet. When the lady opened up the wallet, she found $150. She tried to give it to the clerk, but was told "It's your wallet and everything in it."
    The lady started to cry and said she was just wondering how she was going to pay her electric bill this month. She said a prayer of thanks in the store before she left.
    What an amazing thing some nameless stranger did, not knowing who would pick up the wallet or what their needs would was more than ironic for this to happen in a Goodwill store.
    Just thought maybe some of you all would appreciate a nice story, it sure brightened my day and gave me a re-energized belief in the goodness of people.
    Hope everyone has a great day!

    Reminds me of the time when my husband looked in a coat pocket and found $150 that had been there for over two years. Makes for a pleasant day.

    What a wonderful experience. Thanks for sharing . It sounds like it was more than coincidence and couldn't have happened at a better time for this lady.
