My wife’s cousin lost his cell phone. It’s probably happened to most of us at some time. It’s just a phone, but it feels like we lost an important part of ourselves. It’s as if the thief rummaged through our draws at home while we were away. Icky.
He left it on the counter at a McDonalds. Nobody turned it in. They went back 30 minutes later and it was gone.
His comment on Facebook caught my eye. He said, “I hope somebody honest found it.” Time will tell.
I hope somebody decent, good and honest finds anything I might lose. I hope they find me when I’m at my lowest.
We increase the odds of somebody decent, good and honest being there when we fall if we surround ourselves with people who are decent, good and honest.
And we increase the odds if we are decent, good and honest ourselves.
