Today I wanted to share an amazing event that occurred while we were away. Many of you have probably been to Myrtle Beach and thus have visited Broadway at the Beach. For those of you who have not, this is a fabulous place for shopping, dining, and entertainment. My daughters and I thought we would spend an evening there while hubby went to a ball game. All went well until my daughter Erin lost her Coach wristlet which of course contained her money, ID, and her camera. She had set it on a bench to show me a purchase she made and forgot to grab it when we walked away. It was literally less than 5 minutes but upon her return it was gone! There was a gentleman sitting on the bench and my daughter tearfully asked him if he'd seen it. He did not but was sympathetic. We reported it to the main office in case someone turned it in.
Erin of course was devastated. She had all of her pictures (more than 1000) saved on her camera, plus I had just purchased the wristlet for her. But alas, about 15 minutes after we reported it, the office called and told Erin it was turned in! Yay! The amazing part occurred when she retrieved it. It turns out that the gentlemen that was on the bench turned it in. He told the clerk that he saw some people with it and approached them, asking if they found it on a bench. He snatched it from them "I know who that belongs to" and turned it in! What an amazing man to become involved and ensure that my daughter received her wristlet back. It sounds as if the group that had it had no intention of returning it! The gentleman did not leave his name so we don't know who he is. But, wherever he is I would like to give him a big "thank you" for becoming involved and caring about a young woman's wristlet! I just love when it is reaffirmed that there really are some great people in the world!

Have a wonderful day and I will see you on Pink Saturday!
