One Good Deed Leads To Another Being Returned

Yesterday was all but amazing (we'll reserve that word amazing for the Creator).  Yes! Food, Family/Friends and Fireworks. The day was Fantastic!  It was the 4th of July and we couldn't have asked for a better day. The Sun was out, clear skies in the middle of July the temperatures were not 90 plus and humid like I remember most 4th's, no instead it was a cool low 70's. What a great day to spend at the beach for those who went.  For my wife Annie and myself, we chose to stay at home this year. So we went to a local supermarket (remember no crowds everyone's at the beach) to get some hot dogs and a few other items to set our day in place.  After paying for our things we grabbed our bags and continued on our way.  On my way out I noticed a small bag (something that you would receive if you purchased greeting cards from a Hallmark store) unattended in a cart.

CHOICES: What do I do? In my past the choice would have been simple, finders keepers.  Today the choice was even easier.  I picked up the bag and took it back into the store to the service desk.  Oh! There was a 3rd choice, to mind my business and do nothing......

This story only begins here.  Later on, after firing up the grill and eating more than our fair share of food, we found ourselves at the store again.   Only this time I did not find something, I lost something unaware.  After leaving the store and getting in our car, it was time to get back home to catch the fireworks (on TV this year.) Well to my surprise a young man came running out of the store making a fuss.  I noticed that he had his arm raised high in the air like the Statue of Liberty.  Only there was no flaming torch in his hand.  No! He was holding my black wallet......

I can't begin to tell you all the WHAT IF'S that raced through my mind.  But I will share this:  I chose to do something right and the consequences of my actions were someone else chose to do something right back to me.
