I was walking on the south side of town, and saw a woman crying and she was standing next to a van and the woman in the van was beaming. What was going on?
Leticia was so proud of her daughter. Leticia’s daughter was starting college in St. Louis, new beginnings. So exciting. Much to their shock, Leticia & her daughter realized that somewhere between the drive from Santa Fe NM and St Louis MO, the daughter had accidentally dropped her wallet. Can you imagine how horrifying that would be? Starting school w/o your license, credit cards, the whole bit…. It’s stressful enough moving out of state, but it’s even more stressful when you don’t have your wallet. So many things would go through your mind – what if someone runs up her credit cards? How is she going to get all new ID before school starts… and so on.
Here’s where the lady in the van comes in….. Claudia was driving her van in Santa Fe and saw something in the road – she stopped and sure enough – it was the wallet. She made the necessary phone calls and connected with mom Leticia, to return the wallet.
I just so happened to walk by as they were meeting to return the wallet. It was a beautiful thing to behold.
Claudia took the time to do the right thing, and mom Leticia’s prayers were answered. There are lovely people doing good things every day. That is indeed good news.
I encourage you to be on the lookout for good people doing good things. I really believe there is much good in the world – we just need to pay attention and notice.
