Grateful for Honest People

Good people, honesty, honest peopleWe always hear about all the crime and the bad people in the world but today I was reminded that the majority are actually good and honest people.  I was shopping and carry so many bags that after eating my lunch, I left my purse at the restaurant.  My arms were full so I didn’t even notice that it was missing until I got to my car.  Then panic set in!  I was already rushing to get home for my kid’s early dismissal.  Now I was freaking out and realizing I don’t even have my phone to let anyone know to get my kids.

I ran back into the mall and thought to first track down my friend who I had just met up with.  I thought that way if my purse was stolen and I had no phone, at least she could help me get home or call for help.  However, I wanted to get to the restaurant as fast as possible to increase my chances of finding my purse.  So, I ran through the mall like a mad woman, yelling for my friend until she stopped and then rushing to the restaurant.  When I got there, the purse was not in the booth!  Then a server asked me what I was looking for and what color it was.  He returned my purse to me and both my phone and wallet were in it.  I thanked him and thanked God!  I was so impressed at the goodness of people and that my negligence wasn’t compounded by someone’s greed or dishonesty.

So, even though I triggered an asthma attack with all that running and barely made it home before my boys, it was a great day.  It revived my faith in the goodness of the general population.  I guess the good people of the world keep it going strong despite the few bad apples.  Oh, and a special thanks to the honest and helpful folks at Qdoba in Princeton Marketfair today!
