so, the other day when i posted the engagement story on the blog i left out a rather small, insignificant to the story, detail.
as we were walking through the sand heading towards the cave, matt noticed a louis vuitton wallet just chillin' on the sand. he picked it up and opened to see what was inside...
several credit cards
and other random things.
the owner was a 21 year old california male who definitely looked the part.
we both decided right then and there that we would hang on to the wallet and try and contact the owner.
once we got back to the condo, we decided to try and contact this human via FB...naturally!
we found him, sent him a message, and that was that.
several days later, we still had the wallet, hadn't heard from the dude, and were heading back to utah.
we decided to take the wallet home and then mail it to the address on the license.
a few days after we got home, i headed to the post office and mailed the wallet back with a little note explaining how we ended up with it, and where we found it.
i thought that was the end of that, but the other day i came home to find this package.
i opened it to find...
this card, with this message
"Dear Amy & Matt,
Thank you kindly for finding & returning my wallet a few weeks ago!! Sometimes I wonder how many good, humble people there are on this planet these days...now i know there are at least 2!!! I blow glass as a hobby...Enjoy this pendant I made as a token of my appreciation!
Peace and Blessings!
P.S. If you guys are ever in SoCal give me a call (phone number)"
of course, we didn't expect anything to come from returning the wallet... we just did what we would want someone to do if the situation was reversed. it's good to know that there are kind people all over the world who recognize and appreciate good deeds.
and now we have a new friend in SoCal.
pay it forward people, pay it forward.
