    There are still honest people in this old world...

    My mother and I flew in to NYC landing at LaGuardia field on Long Island. While enroute to eastern LI in a rental car and about 40-50 miles out on the Island my mother said, where's my purse? I quickly pulled over to the side of the expressway and checked the interior and trunk of the car, but to no avail. Since she had almost a thousand dollars in cash, a check book and a couple of credit cards in the pocket book, she was on the verge of panic. I knew it would be a miracle if a purse, loaded with money and other goodies, laying on a seat, in one of the world's busiest airpots were to be turned in to lost and found, but turned around and headed back to LaGuardia. Upon arrival, I quickly went to lost and found and to my amazement someone had found the purse, turned it in to lost and found and didn't leave their identity or any Info. whereby we could call, thank and reward this good and honest person.
    It's reassuring to know, that there are still a lot of honest people in this old world and they can be found in places where you'd least expect to.

    Your mom is very fortunate that it was an honest person who found it.

    If your on vacation I hope you have an enjoyable one or a very nice visit!

    A Smile

    A smile cost nothing, but gives so much.

    It enriches those who receive it,
    without making poorer those who give.
    It takes but a moment, but the memory
    of it sometimes lasts forever.

    None is so rich or mighty that he
    can get along without it,
    and none is so poor but that
    he can be made rich by it.

    A smile creates happiness in the home,
    fosters goodwill in business,
    and is the countersign of friendship.

    It brings rest to the weary,
    cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,
    and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.

    Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed,
    or stolen, for it is something that is of no
    value to anyone until it is given away.

    Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
    Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile
    so much as he who has no more to give.

    My favorite part :
    someone had found the purse, turned it in to lost and found and didn't leave their identity
    A real good Samaritan, not someone angling for a reward.
    Nice story, thanks for sharing it.

    It is great to know that there are some honest, decent, caring people still out there.
