There are still plenty of good people in this world

Purse returned with all its contents

Editor: I have been looking back on 2020, and, although it has been so trying and tragic for many, it has also been a time of genuine kindnesses to friends, neighbours, families, as well as to perfect strangers. People have been sharing, and caring for others. Paying it forward, has become a common experience.

A week before Christmas, I was shopping at WalMart, and, when leaving the parking lot, I placed my purchases in the trunk, and left my purse in the cart, deposited the cart in the proper “shed,” and drove off!

I was almost at Industrial Ave. when I noticed that my purse was not on the front seat. Horror struck. I made it back to WalMart ( without causing an accident!!). Checked the carts, NO purse. Into the store I went, directly to customer service, and, there, on the shelf, behind the cashier, was my purse. Praise the Lord! My purse, and contents, were totally intact.

My grateful thanks to the honest person, who found my purse, and turned it in. I am so thankful, it was you, my guardian angel.

Blessings and all the best wishes for a healthy and happy 2021.
