Lost and Found

Isn't it funny how every once in awhile something happens that restores your faith in the universe? It happened to me today and I wanted to share.

Sometime during our fabulous beach vacation last week, I lost my wallet. A frustrating ending to a very good trip. I was annoyed with myself for being so careless. And what if it was actually stolen and someone was using my driver's license to steal my identity? I checked with the local police, beach patrol, hotel staff, store clerks, but nobody had found my wallet. Ugghhh! I resigned myself to an unpleasant trip to the DMV and learning to live with the nagging fear that someone else had my license.

That all changed when I opened the mailbox today to find a package from the U.S. Postal Service containing my wallet. Apparently, whoever found my wallet dropped it in a mailbox and the USPS took it from there. Though it was missing some cash (I never claimed it was a perfect world!) everything else was completely intact, including my faith in humanity and the universe.

The world is good and there's always hope. Thank you, universe, for reminding me of that today!
