Kelly's Blog encourages us to tell or share acts of kindness. And I can't wait to share this story with you.
I LOVE random acts of kindness. They make my heart HAPPY. Ok, here goes...
So, I was in college. It was the end of spring semester and I cam home. Well, when you come home from college and all your old HS friends are home what do you do? You go out and DRINK. You go out and drink with the fake ID's that you so proudly acquired while attending college. SWEET! -So, I met my friends out at the most awesome place in Nashville - San Antonio Taco Co. YUUMMMM. My mouth is watering as I type. Anyhow...here we were. The gang was back together again. I don't know if you remember, b/c I barely do...but at the end of the semester in college, you could sell all of the text books (that you never cracked) for at least 1/3 of the ridiculous price that you paid for it. So - ALL of us prepared with our fake ID's and a tiny bit of cash, we were living it up at SATCO! It was FUN! Until I got home and realized that I had LOST my wallet. And in my wallet was my FAKE ID and MY CASH - both - happened to be my absolute PRIDE and POSSESSION at the time. SHIT!!!!!
So, here I was...home for the summer with NO money, but more importantly NO ID. CRAP!
*Now, judge here if you want, but I was a COLLEGE student. And if you didn't get to experience these things...well... then you are just jealous and will judge me. ;) I am ok with that. hehe.
Carrying on...about three weeks later my Mom brings me a small package and says..."This just came for you in the mail." I was confused and ripped into it like it was the barbie I wanted so badly for Christmas every year (My mom never let me play with barbies. She didn't like dolls that had hair! Huh??? I know, I don't get it either...).
Anyhow...IT WAS MY WALLET!! With EVERYTHING still in it - even my fake identification. I would have been happy with just that, but there was also a cashier's check with a note. I will never forget what it said.
"Times were hard and I had to borrow some money. Things are better now and I can afford to pay you back with a littel bit of interest." -Signed Annonymous.
I don't remember the exact amount that I lost or the amount of the cashiers check, but I do know that it was about 20.00 more than I had in my wallet. And sure enough I went to the bank and the cashiers check was vaild. Whoever NEEDED that money more than me at the time is my hero. Not only did he/she take the time and care to send my wallet with everything back to me, BUT pay me back with a bonus.
That takes class. And we all fall on hard times. I love this story!
Story #2 to come. It's all about My Hermy and but I have to emotionally redy for that.
