I recently received a phone call from a woman who said that she had found my elderly brother’s wallet and cell phone. She wanted to meet me and return the items.
With trepidation, I suggested that we meet at a safe, convenient spot where I could reclaim the items.
What a pleasure it was to meet this lovely woman. She had recently purchased a pre-owned car and in it were my brother’s items.
In response to my question as to why she had driven quite a distance to meet me, she recalled that she, too, had lost her cell phone, and received a phone call from a thoughtful person who arranged to meet and giver the phone. The least she could do, she said, was to return the gesture.
