Thank you to stranger who committed act of kindness

Every once in a while something happens which restores faith in common decency. Last Thursday, I left my wallet on the farm stand at the corner of Allen Lake Road and Route 80. When I discovered this and went back, over an hour later, it wasn’t there (of course).

I went to the house of the owner — no one was home — but someone had left the wallet, contents intact, on a porch chair, near the door.

Who ever you were, thanks for the wallet back — and for a great uplift, not only of gratitude, but respect and faith in the common decency of people in our local community.

Or, maybe you weren’t local and were just passing by.

Anyway, thank you. For several things.
