Act 160 – What was lost, now is found

Thursday, July 5, 2012, Act 160

It’s been a few months since I have posted anything, and for that I apologize to my readers. I’m ready to back started with weekly if not daily posts. I came across a great act of kindness to get us started back being kind all the time.

A local grandmother and two grandsons found a box that had apparently fallen off of a delivery truck in route to a local jewelry store. The box was clearly marked that it should have been delivered to a nearby jewelry store.

We can imagine the collection of expensive goods inside the box looked something like this!

Knowing that it probably contained valuable items that had been misplaced, the grandmother and children took the missing box to the jewelry store and returned it to its rightful owner.  In my mind, anyone would have known that the items inside the jewelry store package would have been worth a lot of money. That makes this story even more touching – knowing they returned it promptly with nothing damaged and the box unopened.

For their great selfless, act of kindness, the jewelry store in fact rewarded them with a monetary gift for the valiant effort in returning the lost box. Kindness is not lost; we just have to look for it and then give it away to others!

Have you ever lost something that was later returned? Or maybe you are the finder that returned a lost item. Were you recognized, rewarded? Let us know.
