Lost and Found
Lost and Found

Recently, you spoke to a woman who lost her $3000 camera on a trip. At the end of the conversation, you stated you would have told her to check lost and found, but really (and I paraphrase here), what would be the odds of someone actually turning something in? I have a story that may bring to you a smile and some restored faith of the good in people. 

Last year, I took a yearly vacation to a large water park with my sister and our 2 granddaughters. When we got home, I realized my camera bag and camera were not to be found. The camera was much less expensive than your caller's at $300, but the photos on the camera were priceless! I was so disappointed the camera was lost, most likely at the park. I "knew" it was gone forever. The odds of someone turning it in being slim to none. 

Two weeks later, I received a phone call from the water park.  Someone had found my camera and bag laying in a chair, and turned it in to lost and found! It was then I remembered... The day I received the camera, as a gift from my husband, I had put my name and phone number in the smallest pocket! Not only had someone turned the camera in, but 3 SD Cards, extra batteries AND the $20 bill I had in the bag were all still there! I was ecstatic! The park mailed my camera back to me at no charge, with a voucher for the cash. 

I also had thought there was no way someone would turn anything of value in to lost and found. I now know differently! 

I wish you a wonderful day and a smile!
