The Kindness of Strangers: Lost and Found

Some kind soul found this necklace and placed it in a spot where its owner might be more likely to find it.


When my daughter lost her favorite stuffed animal in the grocery store years ago, someone did the same for us by setting Mr. Bugs atop a freestanding cardboard display of ketchup bottles.

Like Blanche in Streetcar, I have always hoped for—and usually found—compassion and assistance from others. Not that I’m reckless or (overly 🙂 ) detached from reality and the need to be self-reliant. But thank goodness for good people! Especially when the news every day is so full of evil and corruption and careless disregard.
