"Thank You" Good Samaritan

Thank you for not stealing my credit cards, my checks, my social security card. Thank you for not stealing my identity. Thank you for not stealing my camera. Thank you for not stealing my planner. For without it, I would be an unorganized MESS. Thank you for not stealing my favorite lip gloss (which happens to be discontinued). Thank you for not stealing my real estate key because I would have to pay to replace it. Thank you for not stealing my precious journal which includes my many thoughts, feelings and experiences over this past year. Most of all....I thank you for finding my purse in a shopping cart in the Wal-Mart parking lot and turning it in. You truly are a good....NO a GREAT Samaritan.



P.S. If you see me sporting this stylish number......
......You'll know why! I have way too much to lose :)

I had the same thing happen to me at a Wal Mart, too, about 4 years ago. There are some honest people out there. Thank goodness.

I am so glad for you. I bet your were just sick!
I had a friend from down here go and do that half marathon. I am sure impressed. Not enough to do it myself though. I guess Lassa didn't get to me the way he got to you! One down(and i don't mean the race!!!)

Marc, that was a close one! I'm so glad an honest person found it.

My purse got lost in WENDOVER of all places (probably the first and last time I will ever go there) and someone turned it in, too. Losing a purse in the middle of a casino is not a good feeling.

Apparently there are more honest people out there than we thought! I think the fanny pack will look absolutely smashing on you.

Confession time. I've done that twice at Walmart and both times it was returned! Maybe the world is a better place than we thought!
I'm sorry I missed Jordan's homecoming. My life is not allowing for much travel these days. Hope all is well with you all!
Love, Marie

P.S. I can't believe the photo of your dad and Mia. That is amazing!

I'm so glad everything turned out ok! How scary! Thank goodness for honest people! Oh, and good for you on your resolution! Holy cow, Marcae, you're amazing! I don't think I could do that.

Oh my gosh. You're so lucky that the right person ended up finding that. That is so scary.

The Hawaiian Howells said...

Yeah, I always wear an over the shoulder purse these days. Glad you had yours returned.

By the way, I have a contest running this week (and every week) on my blog at http://www.annebradshaw.blogspot.com if you're interested.

The prize this week is a signed copy of Dr. Stan Gardner's DVD of one of his lectures on the musculoskeletal system, entitled A Pain in the Neck (Back, Joints, and Other Places). This is brand new and not yet in stores. It will sell for $49.97 when available. The lecture is one hour twelve minutes.

That is amazing! I am so glad for you. I get freaked out when I can't find my purse in my house! I swear some stranger has come right into the house left all the electronics and gone straight for my purse! Paul think I am a dork! I love and miss and Mia is adorable!

Debra and Ryan said...
