Good People

A guy showed up at my work just a few hours ago....WITH MY PURSE!

It's sopping wet, the valuables and identification are gone BUT my heart-shaped sunglasses (yippee!), 4 sets of keys (quadruple yippee!) and a few other random items have been returned.  And my very cool purse will hopefully dry out just fine.

The only identification in the purse was for my work and this wonderful stranger took the time to bring it to me.  I feel terrible that I wasn't able to give him anything as a 'thank you' and wish I would have gotten his information to send him something.  A hug was all I had.

In conclusion...there are good people.

Wow! What a wonderful person! I don't think anyone in Milwaukee would've returned mine if it was me.

I am so happy you got it back. Especially your keys.

Do tell, where did he find it?

He found it alongside the I94 frontage road in E.St.Paul. Which totally makes sense. The dog park isn't far from there and we tracked a credit card transaction at a nearby gas station.

Oh, how I prayed that I'd at least get my keys back! I'm so grateful!
